Tom Cruise loses his delicate sensibilities when Letterman drops an F-bomb

Tom Cruise

Tom Cruise stopped by the “Late Show with David Letterman” last night, and that means he’s in New York City, so maybe he’ll decide to take a few minutes from his very important, hectic schedule and visit Suri. It’s the least he can do. I kind of love the above photo, which is rather enlightening because Tom’s red eyes are betraying the very moment when Xenu comes out to play.

Now onto a more important topic, which is the re-appearance of Tom’s moobs. We are officially back on Moob Watch, people. Kaiser was the first one to notice Tom’s adorable little A-cups, and then she called him out on trying to use his shiny, blue, puffy jacket to hide those suckers. The moobs went away for a few months while Tom got in shape to shoot a few action flicks, but then Tom wore the moob-hiding jacket last week in Madrid, so I guess that’s a good indication that they’re back, right? Look at them. They are so perky. Honestly, I wish my rack was this small. I’d save so much money on sports bras:

Tom’s actual appearance last night on Letterman was an eventful one, but not because there was much talk of Jack Reacher. They did show a clip, but Paramount’s promotion has dropped to a mere trickle in regards to discussing the movie, which is quite violent with all manner of gunplay and Tom beating the living crap out of various characters. That is, in the fallout of the Sandy Hook shootings, the NYC premiere has been postponed out of respect to the victims of the tragedy, which is a smart move. So good on Tom for taking it down a notch too when it comes to pimping his latest project (although other Scientologists haven’t been nearly as well-behaved, and I’ve been giving Juliette Lewis the middle finger all weekend for retweeting “news stories” about how all violence is a direct result of psychiatry — because Xenu drugged his peeps before blowing up all the volcanoes).

In lieu of discussing much about Jack Reacher, Tom and Dave talked about their kids. More specifically, Dave pondered when having “the talk” was appropriate, and then Dave started in on how his kid knows a dirty word or two. Here’s Tom’s shocked face when Letterman drops the F-bomb and a video clip of the moment below:

Tom Cruise

Oh, Tom. His response is rather hilarious yet ultimately predictable here. He’s such a “clean” guy, you know? I remember how Adam Carolla talked about how Tom stopped by Jimmy Kimmel’s house to watch football (and Tom brought his mom), and Tom was so offended (although he was trying to hide it) at all the poop jokes and alcohol-ridden behavior on display. In Adam’s words, “He comes across as a guy who’s battling to be normal, like he’s from another planet, and he’s studying guys and saying, “What would a guy do in this situation?’.” And then Adam did a really gross thing with a football in front of Tom. Wait, what was I talking about?

Right. MOOBS.

    Tom is a good looking man. Like him or not. I agree he is kind of a throw back. I think with Tom that thing they say about women applies to him. If you look at women’s fashion most women stay in a style they felt they were the most attractive. It goes for hair, makeup, clothing. They get trapped in that time period. Tom dresses the way he did in the 80′s. He doesn’t change his style of pants, shoes nothing. He is still so clean cut in his clothing choices. Never radical or trendy.

    I find that very interesting about him.

    I hope he spends time with his daughter while he is in NY. I’m sure she misses him.

    • Suzanne says:

      He may be strange..and he may be stuck in his favorite style..but you’ve got to hand it to him…he IS a nice looking man. He’s probably even better looking in person…but these photo’s show he has a very handsome face…and like most men…I think he’s getting better looking as he ages. Life can’t be easy for these mega stars…Cut him a break people…

      • Snowangel says:

        Not better looking in person. He is the most photogenic person in the universe. I saw him a couple of times in Toronto when he was filming a movie in a building about a block away from the building where I worked. He is really tiny, and has very tiny fine features,(his nose is really thin and small). The jaw is what sticks in my mind after seeing him in person, this very large jaw on such a small person. For some reason his jaw and nose look totally fine in pictures. I would say that sweater he is wearing would be about a size ladies small.

      • V4Real says:

        I have no problem with his style of dress, I do consider him to be attractive and I still enjoy most of his movies.

        My issue with Tom is that he let that cult brainwash him into all those idiotic beliefs and he has the nerves to try and push those beliefs on the public. (Interview with Matt Lauer about meds for psychiatric treatment for one) He has been way too vocal with his views in Scientology and that tends to turn a lot of people off and make him unlikeable. I wish he would just walk away as did a lot of former members but he is in so deep, I believe that Scientology will forever be a part of him. But still you don’t hear much criticism about his acting abilities because he is good at his craft. I don’t agree with his views but I like him as an actor and it stops at that.

      • Chatcat says:

        Narcissists are always stuck in a style. The style they believe is hot and everybody wants them or to be them…hair, facial hair, clothing.

        I really don’t think he is good looking at all, perhaps it is because I have read so much about him and seen his antics over the years and I don’t get caught up in the “exterior” packaging of anybody. I will give a devil his do…but not a narcissist.

      • Stephie says:

        Unlike most of the a-list actors in Hollyweird, Tom is aging well! He is 50 years old and still looks good, regardless of being short. Brad Pitt is 49 and in my opinion, has not aged well at all. I think Pitt looks older than Crise…. Clean living paying off!!

      • Oh Camille! says:

        Hi! I’m not a regular, but I just wanted to pop in to comment about his looks. Back in 1995/6 TC appeared on the cover of GQ. I worked in a mens clothier and it was a big deal when he made the cover. He was dressed in a gold shirt and tie that introduced monochromatic shirt/tie combos and made men’s fashion history. Anyway, the article stated that he wore a 38S. The S stands for short. A man that wears ‘short’ is 5’5″ or shorter. He is indeed, a very small man in stature. TinymonTom is what I forever named him and my movie star bubble was burst. Thanks for reading!

    • EnuffSaid says:

      Tom just bought Suri a $13.5 M house in upstate New York so she will have a place to put her pony she’s getting for Christmas!! Classic one-upmanship!! How gauche!!

  2. Buckwild says:

    Who’s styling him? Why do they keep putting him in these tighter, short sweaters that look like its from Baby Gap? Honestly his face looks fine still, and he has always had good hair but these sweaters/puffy jackets lately are so 1999

  3. Guest says:

    I plan to support Mr. Cruise’s latest effort. Proud to be a long time fan.

  4. gloaming says:

    You know, I wouldn’t mind as I get older if I only put on weight in my bust like Tom.

  5. NerdMomma says:

    LOL I wish my rack was that BIG! With a good padded bra, that’s enough to work with right there. Sigh.

  6. Aubra says:

    Yup…that’s honorary jumpoff club there

  7. Hautie says:

    Oddly enough, I prefer to see a grown man dressed like this… than seeing one desperately trying to be hip.

    Attempting to wear either skinny jeans or those dumb ass baggy jeans with their entire ass hanging out.

    But I realize I am part of the past. I prefer men, well groomed. In pants that fit.

    Though do not mistake my approval of Tom’s clothes… as any form of thinking he is anything but balls out crazy. The man is a nut job. But I am okay with his traditional style of clothes. :)

  8. Beppo says:

    That is one good looking 50-year-old man. I don’t care for his too-tight, too-short pants affinity, but he looks great.

  9. Hahahahaha says:

    I wonder how many ‘hail marry’s’..I MEAN ‘hail E.T’s’ he has to go true to be forgiven for the F bomb?

  10. Erin says:

    Honestly, Tom Cruise has never been good looking to me. Even before all the Xenu talk, he was curiously creepy. I do enjoy hearing of his weird social interactions though.

  11. ZigZagZoey says:

    I really hate his laugh!

  12. j.eyre says:

    Since I am off my leash today, I am going to make a confession. I have never commented on a Tom Cruise post because of this but I will say so now, just this once, and then let’s not speak of such things again…

    … I really like Tom Cruise. I do, I always have. I cannot say “adore” or “love” because I am vehemently opposed to his devotion to Scientology but the rest of it, yes, I adore.

    There. I feel a bit lighter now. Have at me…

  13. Hahahahaha says:

    When Dave said the word,Tom’s first reaction was looking around if anyone heard.He comes over as a very sad person with no genuine friends.I wonder how he grew up.he’s a weirdo, SO sad.he looks like the animal killer type of the neighborhood.

  14. Stuart Horsely says:

    God, his laughter is SO forced. Ugh.

  15. Veruca says:

    Is it a rule to call Tom “the nicest guy in the world”? Everyone seems to say that, and this leaves me troubled.

    Is it some kind of psychosis? How can one be ‘so nice’, yet so damn crazy?

    I really, really hate when he represents (which has been well-documented here), but feel very conflicted when I hear about his kindness.

  16. Elceibeno08 says:

    Actually he looks cute with the extra few pounds on. His legs and butt look perky

  17. Kats says:

    Re: Suri
    I don’t think he advertises seeing her anymore because he isn’t supposed to be. She must be a declared SP. He’s between a rock and a hard place. If he doesn’t see her the public in general will think he’s a crap dad. If he does see her his “church” is against him.
    And there is also the possibility that he is so brain washed he also believes that she is an SP and could harm him and his two other children.
    Messed up.

  18. Abby says:

    sigh. Tom Cruise is a good looking man. Especially for his age. He might actually be better looking than he was back in the day.

    That being said, he’s cray-cray with a capital C…. and it’s ruined every movie I see him in. I don’t see whatever character he’s supposed to be. I see Crazy Scientology Tom.

    • Belle says:

      ^^ This. (insert my own sigh here)
      I didn’t dream about marrying the guy or anything, but I used to like Tom. Have always thought he was attractive… and enjoyed his movies (come on… Top Gun?? Yes.) Once he decided to reveal his crazy though… that was it, none for me.

      I see photos now and then though that remind me I used to like Tom and find him attractive… such as these. They make me a little sad. Aside from the moobs, Baby Gap sweater and Xenu eyes, Tom looks pretty good here.

    • Leni says:

      See that’s just it I agree. He is not-to me-a good actor. It’s like Julia Roberts-whatever they play they only play the same character. I respect Tom for doing his own stunts but he is not Jack Reacher, or Lestat and he is not good enough to make me believe in his character. In the Reacher trailer all I see is someone with a lot of constipation issues and possibly a groin tear. Keep on with the stunts and keep your personal opinions just that. Ken did not talk-nor does TC need to.

      • Belle says:

        I won’t even get started on the Jack Reacher thing… LOL I am one of those die-hard fans of the books, and under no circumstances will I see the movie. I haven’t seen any of his ‘newer’ movies… simply because like you, Leni, I can’t believe in his characters. The Reacher movie is like a double whammy no-go for me…. not only does it have crazy cult Tom, but he is trashing an entire book series for me);

  19. Boo says:

    Such a prissy little fellow. “Ooh, the word F–K is so naughty! Spank his bottom!”

  20. someone says:

    I’m not a fan of Tom Cruise as a person but I think he dresses nicely and is handsome in his own way. He’s a much better dresser than Jennifer Aniston’s greaser boy. Maybe Tom will mello out now that he’s single again.

  21. MyLittlePony says:

    Am not a fan of Mr Cruise, but have to admire his looks though. He photographs just incredibly well, and obviously was born without a bad angle.

  22. erika says:

    oh you CB Ladies! You are relentless Bedhead!

    Hmmmm…I have a sneaking suspicion that TC probably LOVES to have his moobs fondled with during, ‘business time’…..hmm.

    I guess that’s it, I don’t have much to rip on TC today, I’m glad he kept it at a somewhat normal level.

    BET: how many of you want to bet he skips out on seeing Suri at all while in NYC???

  23. erika says:

    and Juliette Lewis…

    You should be so ashamed of yourself. We would normally call out such asinine comments in light of such a horror, but…some people just aren’t worth it.

    You know, you really do see people’s TRUE COLORS when a sick/cruel tragedy has happened dont you? Ever notice that? I did when my car accident happened, left me hospital for 4 mths., people who had so much to be grateful for seemed to be the ones who complained about everything.

    Bitching, cryin’, asshole comment making “Xenu…psychiatry…..ehhh….(fart)…” about how troubled your blessed life is infront of mourners…

    whatever Bitch.

    You poor, poor woman. I feel so sorry for you.

  24. Ginger says:

    I’m not a big fan of cruise but I did like minority report. The preview for Jack Reacher actually didn’t look too bad. I will probably take the hubs since he is a fan of cruise.

  25. Seagulls says:

    Looks like got freshened up again!

  26. Isa says:

    Call him crazy or an alien but he is hot. My crush for a long loooonnnnngggggggg time. Muah Tom

  27. mkyarwood says:

    the moobs always come back after a super buff role. just look at poor Gerry after the 300!

  28. Isa says:

    Call him crazy or an alien but he is hot. My crush for a long time. Muah Tom

  29. dref22 says:

    He is hot and good looking and he is aging so well. I’m sorry but we all need to deal with this fact.

  30. Marie says:

    It helps to “age well” when you have access to one of the top cosmetic surgeons in Europe plus whatever top experts and resources you want and need and want. Like most other celebs (especially A List) he had a TEAM at his beck and call to ensure he looks his best and photographs well in public. It’s all very well paid smoke and mirrors to sell a certain image.

  31. Zombie Shortcake says:

    Omg that football story is hilarious! Cruise looks like he’s had some recent face work or ‘tox done.

  32. Monika says:

    i just can’t keep silent anymore with your comments on tom. moobs, really? he’s 50.
    kudos to celebitchy, it’s always a fun read, but you’re being so petty when it comes to tom, it’s sad.
    in 2005 it became too easy to laugh at tom and everybody happily jumped the wagon – making fun of the golden boy feels sooo good, we are sooo much better than him, right?
    you know there are people who laugh too loud when they are feeling low, and they seem off even though they are trying hard to appear as if everything’s fine?
    i believe all of us on celebitchy are well informed on that creepy cult, but who knows how they play it with tom now when he is completely in their clutches? maybe his ardent support is fake and he is trapped just like everybody else inside that stinky cesspit. at least give him benefit of a doubt.
    do you know how a cult operates? do you know how they break people undermining their confidence with subtle psychological pushing until they fall off the ledge? they don’t have to blackmail people, just slowly make them believe they are nothing without the ‘organization’.
    tom was always a very unusual man, clean-cut and kind and fragile with a maniacal drive. (i suggest watching ‘un jour, un destin’ – ‘one day, one destiny’, a french documentary about tom – a great insight into crappotology and their dealings with tom)
    he said and did very stupid things. in spite of his publicized relationships, his private life has always been a mystery. his little lifts give away his Napoleon complex. ok. but putting anybody under such scrutiny with mocking intentions turns them into a caricature. lay it off a little, when you’re attacking somebody for EVERYTHING for so long and so ardently, you’re not being funny at all.

    • Greta says:

      Point taken. He has been compromised in a million ways by his “beloved” cult. If he stopped admiring Miscavige, which way would he turn? I will look for that French documentary.

      • Monika says:

        it’s a documentary by a great team of journalists highly regarded in france. they made it in 2009, just after tom’s delirious notions on sci and his speech upon receiving ‘medal of valor’ appeared on web. on you tube it’s divided in 8 parts, 10 mins each, but it’s worth watching. the link for part 1 is here :
        it’s very engaging and revealing, especially so in exposing the very beginning and the nature of mimi rogers & tom, tom & miscavige relationships – calculated evil is the first thought after you realize how a life was systematically being ruined.
        and though it’s not biased at all – the french are very critical, to say the least, for all things american, and you often can’t restrain yourself from swearing at tom’s incredible gullibility, you’re left with a sour aftertaste and lots of simpathy for tom.

    • Snowangel says:

      Holy cow, that is one hell of a paragraph.

    • J says:

      The moobs comments are a real turn off to me too.

    • Zombie Shortcake says:

      Wow. Thank you for posting that link to the documentary.

      • Monika says:

        no problem. i think many people should see it. when i first saw it, i was completely overcome with a very strong emotional cocktail, ranging from shame for making fun of tom back in the day, to disgust and emptiness and anger and pity. perhaps everybody hates or loves tom so strongly because he was always with us, i think i’ve seen every one of his movies many times while i was growing up, plus the media coverage – and it’s been 30 years like that – he was somehow always close, however strange that may sound.

  33. Marie says:

    BTW I love how certain bloggers are defending his role in Suri’s life – or lack of? – when he could easily send a private jet and or helicopter with a nanny and security to pick her up anytime. How do we know Katie wouldn’t allow it more? We DON’T. But the same blogger gives no credit or leeway to Gabriel Aubrey while he’s been fighting to stay in Nahla’s life even against what we now know is Chris Brown’s new bestie, Martinez’s (former pro boxer to be) BS and physical aggression along with Hale’s unrelenting threats. Self defence? Right. Only one example where a third party could have been sent out to get Nahla and Martinez could have kept his mouth shut (especially on Thanks Giving) and provoke a fight of any kind. I’m sure Tom is just a good guy who doesn’t let his cult religion (with reams of well documented abuses about it) affect his life or behaviour. And while were at it could we all agree Katie Holmes had ALOT of help and advice from key people to leave Tom and Scientology SAFELY as many don’t (like her dad has not been seen in public since most likely for safety) and that she is not managing her career or life alone. That’s what she pays others good money for.

  34. Jayna says:

    The best Tom looks is when he wears his hair linger, especially thick on top, like in The Samarui.

  35. exxo1111 says:

    I agree that he looks really good for his age and not tweaked.

    I also like that at his age he dresses like a man and is respectful of his business (and he film backers ) that may be a later generation

    Lately stars act like doing promos is such a chore – sooooo difficult – they only do it b/c they are forced etc

    At least he respects the business end of what he does and holds up his end of the contract with class

  36. Amy C says:

    He looks nice here yes. may be he sometimes consider crossing his leg in a man way than opening it like that not a good look when taped from the bottom up like that.
    So they take this clip means no one asked him about his divorce or single life or non of that Or what he thinks about gun possessing since he did a movie about a killer non of that.. If this was another star/s they would do that.

  37. rose says:

    I dont I cant hate the guy. he seems old school nice.

  38. Nev says:

    Could it be by the comments on this post today that the tides are sloooowly turning?

  39. midnightmoon says:

    I completely reject the Xenu world, but there have been WAY TOO MANY murders, suicides, and injuries due to the rampant overuse of prescription drugs. Just because they are crazy doesn’t mean they are wrong.

    My hubby worked at UC San Francisco in a department funded by Big Pharma. His boss quit due to undue influence & the lies he was pressured to perpetuate (multiple sclerosis ‘research’) that ended up killing a few people during a clinical trial. Ooooops!

    Two words for ya: Tiger Woods/ambien/vicodin

    • Aotearovian says:

      Not disagreeing with you for a second on the overprescription and abuse of prescription medication – the misanthropic evil of Big Pharma vastly outweighs the worst deeds of the Co$ – but what do those last four words have to do with anything?

    • gg says:

      Their stance on pharmacology and psychiatry are not the main reasons this Cult is Evil, not by a longshot. It’s the murders and brainwashing and unlawful imprisoning and abuse that goes on and on.

      The only reason they’re opposed to psychiatry is that it’s the main thing that can disprove their crazy beliefs that they can float through the air and suspend time, simply because they’ve paid $$$$$ to hold a coupla tin cans on a quack device. So, of course psychiatry is shunned. Elron Blubber well knew this, so he put it in his little sci-fi book they all follow.

  40. Tulip says:

    I work with his italian dubber (he dubbed Cruise in 90% of his movies). They know each other and have been together in various occasions. He actually always tells me Cruise IS a nice person. He says he’s a total perfectionist, he still works out 2-3 hours a day, but besides that, he’s really pleasant and generous, always willing to help and solve problems, and genuinely nice to talk to.
    It goes without saying that he gains nothing by talking well of Cruise – it’s not actors who choose their dubbers, it’s the italian distributor of the movie. He talked to me not so flatteringly about Jeff Goldblum, for instance (and I looooooooooooooove Jeff Goldblum).

    So, I don’t really know what to think.

    • Aotearovian says:

      Thing is, there are absolutely no stories of Cruise being an asshole (am I allowed to say that on CB? If not I apologize).

      What this person reports is consistent with what everyone who has worked with him says. He’s kind, outgoing, enthusiastic, exceptionally disciplined and professional, and very very helpful.

      He’s big on helping. It’s a Scientology thing. I think what people are questioning – certainly what I question – is what sits behind that.

      Not to say he’s lying or faking, but if he were really that good, kind, dedicated, diligent, attentive person in his private life as well as his professional one, how, for starters, is he three times divorced? Why doesn’t he have any friends? What the hell is going on?

    • Velouria says:

      Tulip & Aotearovian, these are both examples of him being nice in a professional capacity. I don’t recall TC ever having a bad work rep either. It’s clearly very important to him. TC has mastered it at work but not at home/personally.

      Other celebrities don’t have that kind of discipline, i.e. Christian Bale’s on set explosion, yet he’s only been married ONCE and for 12 years…so take that how ever you’d like.

  41. midnightmoon says:

    The rest of my comment failed to load. Drugs & lone gunmen have a long, storied connection. Let’s discuss appropriate funding for ALL methods to treat mental illness rather than throw MORE zillions of dollars for ‘security’. No amount of security guards & metal detectors take the place of rational public policy. IMHO.

    Love & light to you all. In sadness, grief, and community. Those gorgeous children deserve a rich memorial in terms of addressing the REAL problems we face.

  42. Kim says:

    Not a fan of Cruise but I watched a few minutes of the interview and he mentioned Connor says”Please don’t talk about me” his friends bring up stuff TC says.”Dad don’t say that stuff” his kids tell him.

  43. Rebecca says:

    I think he looks good in these pics, I like the way he dresses and think he’s pretty attractive, I find it hard to flip past “A Few Good Men” when I see it on TV (adore Sorkin, but also really like Tom in that film) – but I think $cientology is an abusive, dangerous cult and won’t pay to see his films knowing he passes money along to them.

  44. Lisa says:

    If he were just your average dad on the street, he’d be pretty attractive. Knowing how wrapped up he is in Scientology has warped him so much, that takes away from a lot of his looks and personality.

  45. kimcheee says:

    I’ve never found Tom Cruise to be an attractive male. Same goes for Brad Pitt. And Justin Beiber. LOL.

  46. K-rock says:

    Gotta give it to Tom, I enjoyed seeing him laugh and enjoy the convo with David! Tom if you are looking for a date, I’m free and normal! (ish) ;)

  47. Shirleygail says:

    I thought his trousers too tight. Apparently, so did he because he had to adjust them during the interview and he wiggled around, not able to sit still at all. Sounds like me in trousers that are too tight! sgh

  48. Maritza says:

    Tom is aging gracefully. He is a very handsome and photogenic 50yr old. If he has had some work done on his face it looks very natural.

  49. coconut says:

    the pants look ridiculously too small when you watch the video, sweater too. i’ve just been reading stacy london’s new book and this is not how she would dress him. in fact, she and clinton’s book Dress Your Best has a section on men, including built men and shorter men.

  50. vvy says:

    He’s always been physically gorgeous looking, and he still is. He’s no longer attractive though because we know so much about his narcissistic and messed up behaviour. I watched him on Jimmy Fallon last night, and he doesn’t always get the joke, if you know what i mean. Jimmy asks him a question, and he gives a straight boring answer….he has no idea how to make something funny, In that respect its kinda sad and I can see the awkward side in him, which of course is completely hidden in his movies. Maybe that’s why he loves making movies, so he can be someone different than himself.
