Tom Cruise thinks he & Katie Holmes are the new Fred & Ginger

Tom Cruise & Katie Holmes Go The Distance!

A few weeks ago, a totally budget video came out of Katie Holmes singing and dancing to “Whatever Lola Wants (Lola Gets)”. Tom was her little dancing love-slave in the performance, and it was totally for charity. It was sort of cute, actually. Except that it was hilariously bad – Katie sang live, and her voice kind of sucks, and as for the actual “dancing” – well, just go look at my post about it. In case you wanted to see the video again, here it is:

The video became so popular that when Tom appeared on Oprah, she even showed it and had Tom talk about it. Tom, of course, laughed and seemed very proud of his wife, much to his credit. Now OK! Magazine is reporting that Tom is a little overly-enthusiastic about Katie’s dance fever. According to their source, Tom makes Katie (KATE) practice all the time so they can become “the new Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire.”

Tom Cruise is driving Katie Holmes crazy with demands for perfection on the dance floor, a source tells OK!.

The two performed “Whatever Lola Wants (Lola Gets)” at a benefit in L.A. on May 1. Tom caught dance fever afterward, and now he makes Katie practice several times a week.

The source says, “Tom wants them to become the new Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire.”

“He loves the idea of performing on stage with her but believes Katie has a long way to go before she’s ready. The irony is that she’s a far better dancer than he is!”

[From OK! Magazine]

Tom thinks he’s Ginger, doesn’t he? Ginger was the short one. Seriously, Tom is one of those people who takes someone’s innocent and enjoyable hobby and sucks all of the fun out of it by demanding perfectionism. Why can’t Katie just dance because she likes to dance? Why does she have to be the best? Because she’s not. She’s a good dancer for an amateur, don’t get me wrong, but as I said in the other post, she actually thinks she’s Ginger (or Fred, I can’t tell), and that’s what’s sad to me.

    How can anyone think either of these two can be compared with highly trained, very talented dancers? I suspect someone has taken the fact they performed at a benefit and expanded it into a “story”.

  2. Constance says:

    haha! what a laugh! He sucks all the life out of everything around him because he has nothing he actually likes. You know, like that girlfriend who obsessively takes up all your hobbies because she won’t admit she doesn’t have any of her own. He’s just a sad empty shell of a body.

    Those two are so pathetic.

  3. Madisyn says:

    I believe 99% of negative TC stories, but this one, not so much. I do believe he sucks the life out of her, but don’t believe he “makes” her practice obsessively.

  4. Marjalane says:

    Do her legs look wierd to anyone else? I know she’s a very slim woman, but her legs look oddly out of proportion.

  5. a says:

    fella’s got moobs!

  6. GatsbyGal says:

    He probably doesn’t force her to practice, per se. But he probably manipulates her into it, making her feel guilty about not practicing, like “you don’t want to get good enough to dance with me, fine.”

    He’s a soul-sucker, no doubt.

  7. Fluffy Kitten Tail says:

    If that was her singing, I don’t think it was that bad to tell you the truth. She sounded okay. Her voice was better than the dancing.

  8. sdca says:

    why is he holding her elbow when they are jogging? does he thinki she might trip and fall?
    Jesus, Katie has been running for years; she’s a grown adult and has been walking on her own since childhood, Tom.

    And,why is he always holding her arm, in photos? it’s creepy and controlling.
    i think he thinks it makes him look manly/masculine and makes the relationship look real.

    instead,it just makes him look like even more of a control freak.

  9. Kelaa Khaa says:

    And on the walkman Katie is listening to Tool.

  10. Statler says:

    For the six years we were together, my ex was forever grabbing my arm, linking arms, or otherwise all over me (of course, never while jogging though- how awkward). I know that’s interpreted as controlling behavior, and most of my friends wondered how I could stand it. Truth be told, I must be odd because I liked it; it made me feel powerful and protective of him simultaneously. Granted he wasn’t some hulking giant (5’7″ to my 5’4″). But my point is, please don’t uniformly dismiss clinginess as creepy- some of us like more physical contact than others.

    Back on topic: neither of them can dance- but I do think comedy is the route they should pursue.

  11. guesty says:

    they are so weird.

  12. original kate says:

    why is he always holding on to katie, even when they are jogging? is he afraid she’s goinng to run away?

  13. kim says:

    he can think whatever he wants, she still isn’t anything special.

    How much money is he spending trying to convince the world his wife is a star??? She’s totally a D-lister with a former A-lister, who’s now an F-lister to anyone under the age of 40.

  14. Aspen says:

    I like having my husband touch the small of my back or my arm to lead me into a room, too. I draw the line at touching me while I’m working out, though.

    C’mon! That’s dangerous, too. I suffer from spontaneous standing failure often enough on my own. I don’t need to be knocked over by my husband.

  15. Kitten says:

    I agree with the first commenter. This is a fake story. Also, she sounds perfectly fine imo-she is NOT a trained singer. Sounds much better than Kesha on SNL, not that that’s saying much…

  16. canadianchick says:

    I’m mesmerized by the moobs. I can totally see him getting obsessive about the dancing-but he should get a “bro” (see Seinfeld) before signing up for DWTS,

  17. Dobben says:

    I don’t think he’s “holding onto her arm”. Anyway, I think his hand is on/near her back area.

    To me, it looks like he’s spotted something on her shirt, a bug, whatever, and is taking it off. See how he’s looking down at her back area? Or maybe he’s trying to get her attention. She’s wearing earphones and he’s not. Or maybe he’s patting her on the back as in encouragement.

    It’s one photo. How can we know what occurred before or after? Even if we had a string of photos, we don’t know what’s been said between them.

    I think people try to read into something when nothing’s there.

  18. Duh says:

    First Fred Astaire was a classically trained dancer. Fred spent years and years perfecting his craft. Then when he got involved in acting he spent serious time studying that craft and learning and improving his skills.

    Tom, uh not any of the above applies to him. He hasn’t dedicate a huge portion of his life to become the best at any craft, not to dance, not to improving his acting, not to anything except building a bigger public image and gaining fame for being Tom Cruise and not for being a great actor.

    And Kate Holmes is so far from being OSCAR winner Ginger Rogers that the comparison of the two women makes me sick to my stomach. Ginger studied acting, Ginger studied singing, Ginger studied dance. Ginger mastered all of those skills. Kate has mastered none and more than like never will even come close to being proficient at being an actor.

    More over Fred & Ginger were NEVER involved romantically. Which shows Tom’s idiocy and arrogance.

    Both Ginger and Fred were exceedingly talented professionals who kept their private lives private. Something that Tom Cruise couldn’t do if his life depended on it because its the main thing his known for “being Tom Cruise” not being a stellar actor.

  19. M says:

    Listen I think Tom and his scientology is a bit weird, but I dont believe every single story about them. The source is from gossip rag, that isn’t completely credible. Magazines like that always seem to push out some “Katie is pregnant” story every month, and trust me, she still hasn’t had a second kid yet.

  20. Aurealia says:

    Yeah, Katie is one of those slim up top gals with chunky lower halves. She has to starve herself to keep the lower half in check. Baby Suri unfortunately has inherited her mams chunky legs in my opinion. You can tell even now at 4 years of age.

  21. Dobben says:

    Guys… seriously??? Get over this hate already. A -SOURCE- said that “Tom makes Katie practice all the time so they can become ‘the new Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire.'”

    Somebody show me a clip of him on TV saying that or a quote attributed directly to Tom as having said that and then I’ll believe it.

    You guys look for -anything- to hate on them. And I’m not a big fan of either of them. But this is just so ridiculous.

  22. Bodhi says:

    My 65 year old tango dancing parents have a FAR better chance of being the “next Fred & Ginger” than TinyTom & Kat(i)e. My folks are way cuter when they dance too 🙂

  23. missmilly says:

    Tom is the tool.

  24. denise says:

    Katie is a mind controlled robot. These people are insane.

  25. Jeri says:

    KatIE should go on Dancing with the Stars and see how great she is. Of course, she’s probably TOO BIG A STAR and she WOULD BE CRITIZIED (can’t spell) and the judges are not under Tom’s control. So I doulbt she will.

  27. Anne de Vries says:

    Love that photo – “Hey, wait up!”
    She’s listening to her ipod and completely ignoring him. He’s half a pace behind and trying to make her pay attention to him..

    Don’t know what to think of this story – I don’t find it hard to believe that Tom pushes her to be perfect in every interest she has though.

  28. Divorcee says:

    The bitch was awful. She can’t act,dance or sang to save her life. She did musicals in school and took dance lessons since she was a child, unfucking believeable. Good thing for her that she has Tom because that bitch suck big time. I think I’ll save my money and not buy any tix’s with Tom in it including M-I, I WOULD RATHER WASTE MY MONEY ON WATCHING REAL TALENT which Tom seems to lack including brains.
