Tom Cruise likened himself to a soldier in Afghanistan.
If you are not familiar with the apparently shocking news, you can read this article: http://www.idesigntimes.com/articles/8473/20131108/tom-cruise-soldier-comment-offensive-suri-abandonment.htm?utm_source=zergnet.com&utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=zergnet_108010
An excert from the news that gives reason to this comparison is
It seems the 51-year-old Mission Impossible star recently sat for a deposition in a $50 million libel suit case he's launched against Bauer Publishing. The publication printed two stories after Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes divorced indicating that the actor had "abandoned" his daughter Suri. To combat the allegations, Tom Cruise likened his career as an actor to that of a deployed military soldier serving a tour in Afghanistan. In the deposition, Tom Cruise was recorded saying that acting was just as hard as being a military soldier because it often prevented him from seeing his daughter when he wished.
I feel people can be so overeactive! What I feel Tom Cruise wanted to say was that like soldiers he couldn't be with his family when he wanted.
He didn't mean his life was as hard as a soldier. He simply made the hyperbolic comparison between his relationship with Suri and a soldier with his family. It was as hyperbolic and exuberant as his jump in Oprah's couch, or the interview in a scientology video.
Who didn't, at one time, made some controversial statement in his life?
Sometimes I think people just want to direct their hate towards someone or something in a mad frenzy.
What do you think about this lattest gossip?
