Cameron Diaz & Tom Cruise have always had torrid sexual energy, of course

Before I started writing this story, I glanced through some older photos of Cameron Diaz and Tom Cruise from their 2010 publicity tour for Knight & Day. I’m using some of the old photos too – don’t these pics make you nostalgic for Cameron’s old face? Sigh. Anyway, Tom and Camy have been friends for more than a decade now. To be fair, Camy is so giggly and happy, I think she’s friends with most people, and I remember how tight she and Tom seemed after they worked together on Vanilla Sky. Years passed, and they worked together again on Knight & Day, and once again they seemed pretty tight and pretty friendly. I’m saying with no wink or nudge – even though I think Tom’s sexuality is Xenu-tastic ball of confusion and withheld desire, I’m perfectly fine with thinking he’s able to maintain close, nonsexual friendships with actresses like Cameron. Emphasis on “nonsexual”.

So, In Touch Weekly claims that Tom was in London to help Cameron celebrate her 40th birthday. And somehow, this became a thing about Tom and Cameron and their torrid sexual energy, both past and present.

Cameron Diaz had a very special guest by her side as she celebrated her 40th birthday at London’s Coworth Park Hotel on Aug.30: her former Vanilla Sky and Knight and Day costar Tom Cruise, 50.

“They’re very close,” a friend of Cameron’s tells In Touch. “She thinks Tom is awesome.”

The two were joined by Cameron’s other pals – including Tom’s ex, Penelope Cruz – but all eyes were on Cameron and Tom, who seems to be drawn to sexy actresses.

“Cameron is totally Tom’s type – A-list, stunning and strong,” says an insider. “I think they’ve hooked up in the past. They have crazy good chemistry.”

Don’t expect Katie Holmes to be fazed by the two spending time together, however: “Cameron can have him,” says a source close to Katie. “She’s moved on and doesn’t care who he hangs out with.”

[From In Touch Weekly, print edition]

My take: Tom Cruise wouldn’t know what to do with Cameron if he ever got her. My take: Cameron is probably very fond of Tom, but she would not know what to do with him either. But I like this strategy from Team Cruise – the “let’s see who we can put him with” strategy. It’s fun! Team Cruise tried it with Olga Kurylenko, and now they’re trying it with Camy. Honestly, if I’m David Miscavige and I’m picking out Tom’s new girlfriend, I would aim for someone more like Cameron and less like “some 20-something starlet.” I would love to see Tom “with” a woman in her 40s. I think that would be very interesting.

These are some photos of Tom in London from a few days ago – I don’t understand why everyone has been saying he looks so thin these days? He looks positively mooby in this sweater. Time for another trip to Brazil, Tom!

    To me, he just looks really thin in the face and neck. But, it may just be his new haircut.

  2. Izzy says:

    Wow. He must be wearing some massive lifts in that first picture if he’s the same height as her.

    • Chatcat says:

      No kidding. The little narcissistic prince of space pods has to have at least 5 inch lifts down there! Ha and probably needs a 5 inch extension for other parts of his anatomy as well.

      The next woman who sacrifices herself for fame and fortune to be Tommy’s beard better hope that Uncle R.L. has some secret mystical shit up his sleeve, because girl will be crucified by the general public …

  3. lem says:

    if team cruise is pushing this idea, it’s absolutely terrible. diaz seems to be incredibly independent– the opposite of a woman that is suitable for tom. i just have to roll my eyes at this pairing.

  4. Jackie O says:

    his ‘people’ are terrible at spin. always so obvious and never believable.

    • gg says:

      That’s because intense greed makes people stupid.

    • Elizabeth says:

      I don’t think you should be too hard on Tom’s PR people. They’re not stupid – they just don’t have anything to work with (their client is a crazy lift wearing midget who belongs to a cult) and Tom or David M. is probably quarterbacking their every move. They’re PR people, not miracle workers, so give them a break :)

  5. Maritza says:

    Nothing but true friendship between these two.

  6. NerdMomma says:

    He just looks really haggard. This story is such an obvious plant by both PR teams, making both Diaz and Cruise seem all cool and sexy but putting no pressure on them to actually get together. I love how reading Celebitchy makes me constantly analyze PR moves :)

  7. bea says:

    Wouldn’t she be considered an “SP” (stoned person) by the Church?

  8. it'sjustblanche says:

    I would bet she’s fond of him, as she seems to be a woman who likes hanging out more with men, but there’s no way she’s into him. Totally not the type she goes after.

  9. Mia 4S says:

    ” I would love to see Tom “with” a woman in her 40s.”

    Really? After everything we’ve leaned about the controlling, bizarre, and down right mean way he deals with these relationships? There are some stars I despise but I wouldn’t wish that nonsense on anyone.

    • CG says:

      Plus no woman in her 40s would put up with his controlling BS. Someone who’s 23 or 25 like Katie or Nicole would be more likely to deal with it. But someone in her 40s who’s presumably had a few relationships and knows what she does and doesn’t want and is and isn’t willing to put up with? No. I mean, I realize these are all contract relationships anyway, but still, I can’t imagine a 40-plus woman putting up with being screamed at for days on end like Katie was.

  10. v says:

    “and Tom, who seems to be drawn to sexy actresses.” Ha.

  11. C72 says:

    i am just fascinated by the media machine….where do these reports come from? seriously, is it his camp? it must be them grasping at straws to see which chick will help him with is next movie as he is slowly self-destructing due to CO$?!?!

    this is a weird industry

    • Jayna says:

      Half the time it’s crappy rag mags needing to fill space. They take a photo and weave a story out of it.

  12. DanaG says:

    The church wouldn’t be able to groom a girl in her 40′s that is why Tom’s wives are getting younger. I think Cameron would be the last girl Tom would get too far with. She doesn’t seem like the kind of girl who get’s told what to do and Tom as we all know isn’t that into women who are too independent.

  13. Birdie says:

    Cameron Diaz is officially the woman with worst taste in men: A-Rod, Jared Leto, Justin Timberlake, Tom Cruise(?).. wow.

  14. lafairy says:

    I think that they are just very good friends they are not in anyway each other’s type!

    and by the way Oga Kurylenko is not a 20 something starlet she is already 33 or 34…well still too young for him ut still!

  15. spinner says:

    They had absolutely no chemistry in Knight & Day. It was painfully obvious.

    • carrie says:

      i totally disagrees with you :they have a great alchemy in this movie and Vanilla Sky (he also had a great alchemy with Penelope Cruz in VS)

      • Chatcat says:

        I totally disagree with you. Vanilla Sky was hands down the worst movie I have ever watched…almost 2 hours of my life I can never get back!

      • Genevieve says:

        @ chatcat…

        This entire thread makes me lol.

        Will the Cruise machine PLEASE cease and desist w/ the whole pushing the gay man as *straight* deal?! Tommygirl having “sexual chemistry” with any woman is a complete contradiction in terms. And “Vanilla Sky” was two hours of my life I’ll never get back.

        Cruise PR people: STOP with the “TC LOVES him some women’s!!” thing…Please? Seriously, nobody is buying that anymore, rofl.

      • Chatcat says:

        Did you see what JustJared is reporting…Olga Kurylenko on the paparazzi photos of her kissing Tom Cruise: “Those shots were clearly from the set. There was a spaceship next to us!”

        Ha a spaceship! He is ready for the next beard and he’s got the ride ready and waiting! “from the set” my ass! TC is wooing the next Xenu bride! Run Olga, run!!!!!!

      • Green_Eyes says:

        No chemistry what so ever in Knight & Day. Vanilla Sky I definitely didn’t watch, the promos were enough to put me off. He & Cami may be good friends, but I’ll never believe there’s more to it.

      • Bodhi says:

        Alchemy? Yeah, I guess TC’s having chemistry with either actress is like turning lead into gold

      • Elizabeth says:

        I watched Vanilla Sky and found it laugh-out-loud funny. Sadly it was meant to be a “serious” drama, so I guess that means it was a very bad movie. When it was over, my friend and I discussed how bad it was and if any actor could have done something with the material. We agreed that Nicolas Cage (crazy and broke now, yes, but a great actor in his prime) might have been able to pull out the save but Tom Cruise (Mr. wooden action hero) was a terrible choice for the role. Apparently this was Tom’s attempt to be a “serious” actor. Serious fail, more like it.

    • stinky says:

      aww …. Stinky like ‘Vanilla Sky’ !!!
      it was def weird tho. Yo, when i went to see it in the theatre, right at the very end when they’re all standing up on top of the skyscraper, some cuckoo in the very back of the near-empty theatre started meowing! it scared the poop outta me. Still i really dig that flik tho. i’m no T.C. fan, but i dont boycott him either – he does plenty of flix that i can pass on.

  16. Eleonor says:

    They have friends chemistry, not sexual, I can totally see this two going out for a beer, not having sex.

    • TG says:

      I agree too I never saw any chemistry other than friendship. Just finished the Vanity Fair piece and it was really good but much of what was mentioned had already been discussed in great detail here on Celebitchy and the wonderful comments section. Of course the Nazanin Boniadi angle was new and very fascinating. The article and in particular the parts about Nazanin was written in such a way that is almost made tiny tom look like he was being manipulated and has no idea that nothing he does or says is actually his own wishes and desires. I think they manipulate him by stroking his vanity and massive ego. Now I finally understand why it appeared that Nicole abandoned her children. Although, why she never went to the court about the alienation tactics I don’t know. He is a real peice of sh*t. Please Katie and Nicole tell us what you know.

      • gg says:

        “Alienation tactics” are very hard to prove, and she knows what clout and $$ the co$ has. They would run false stories to try and destroy everything she holds dear and she knows that. So she’ll never speak up, not even after the scumbags get thrown in jail or off themselves as the cowards they are.

  17. Mel says:

    I could maybe see him with Rene zellwegger.

    • ZenB!tch says:

      Too short. He seems to like to be seen with Amazon women. He’s HOPING Cami will cave and sign a contract.

  18. MoxyLady007 says:

    She might appeal to him though. People like him are drawn to strong women – they enjoy the challenge of breaking them. Seriously.

  19. zelly says:

    yeah, their chemistry just burns up the screen


  20. lucy2 says:

    This is so obviously a plant by his team, it’s hilarious.

  21. pretty says:

    cameron diaz looks like tom’s mother.
    her skin is so worn.. wtf…

  22. Quinn says:

    If there’s sexual chemistry, it’s just because she looks like a dude.

  23. Julie says:

    I just can’t wait to see who he does eventually marry. He’ll find some idiot.

  24. RayneBeau says:

    I could see the two of them being together and comparing botched nose job surgery stories.

  25. Darlene says:

    Dude. I hate TC, but if you think that’s “mooby”, I think you’re wrong. Small pecs, but no where near approaching Simon Cowell standards.

  26. Lindy says:

    I actually laughed out loud at the Tome Cruise “who seems to be drawn to sexy actresses” line. Laughing, still laughing.

    How obvious and strange is that phrasing? I mean, it should have been followed up by a (TM) or copyright notice from TC’s publicist.

    They can trademark the phrase and start using it in all articles about TC, and on all film promotion materials!

    “The new film, Mission Impossible 14, starring Tom Cruise, who seems to be drawn to sexy actresses”

    “Check out the new profile of Tom Cruise, who seems to be drawn to sexy actresses, in Rolling Stone”

    “Sources claim to have seen Tom Cruise, who seems to be drawn to sexy actresses, getting cozy with Kirstie Alley”

    • TrustMeOnThis says:

      I never thought of Kirstie. OMG. If that was going to happen it would have happened already, but can you imagine all that crazy in one room?! Holy Xenu!

      • gg says:

        She would sit on his lap, crush him, and then eat him alive. Metaphorically and literally.

      • Lindy says:

        I know!!

        I mean, Tom Cruise, who seems to be drawn to sexy actresses (TM), would only be about half a foot shorter than Kirstie Alley. He wouldn’t even have to buy new lifts! Perfect!

    • pamspam says:


  27. Whatever says:

    Dude is nuts…chick is nuts…..they deserve each other. No strike that I may think Diaz is a bit full of herself but no one deserves his brand of crazy. Man is delusional.

  28. BooBooLaRue says:

    Da gurl been lyin’ bout her age for eons. Cam-Cam is closer to 50 and looks it, perhaps she is a match for Tom-Tom. Tom-Cam.

  29. TG says:

    Looks like tiny tom and missy cabbage have recruited conner in their media blitz to paint that tiny tyrant in a good light. Just saw on Radaronline a photo that connor tweeted of tiny tom and his first two children when they were babies. It is actually a cute photo but about 20 years too late to make that freak look like a loving person. We all know the truth. I knew conner would never leave the dark side you can see the intensity in all his photos that boy has been brainwashed to worship the ground his pop walks on.

  30. Marta says:

    they are making movie together
    “Old Snow White and One Dwarf”

  31. Talie says:

    It’s much harder to manipulate a woman in her 40s…so he’ll always go young.

    • gg says:

      He wants spawn so he’ll pick a younger. But my feeling is, while they might be compliant in their 20s, in a few years while they’re still young, they’ll see the life they’re missing and bolt by the time they’re 32.

  32. barb says:

    Obviously a spin to get people to think that he’s a heterosexual male.

  33. Swethaa says:

    Cam looks so fresh and pretty in the second pic

  34. Lem says:

    When these 2 were promoting whatever dumb flick they made together last, there was video of them at Le Tour de France. They took separate cars. Waited 10 foot apart, ignoring each other, waved at Le Lance and then didn’t even say “good day” to each other before leaving.
    What b.s.

  35. S_____ says:

    You have to, have to, have to read this:
    It’s called Why Do Scientologists Accept the Xenu Story? and it details how Scientologists come up with these incredible fake memories under the duress of auditing. They come to believe (to really believe) that they were Jesus or Caesar in a past life. Or that 300 million years ago they blew up a planet. And more.
    Anyway, point being, this is what Tom Cruise believes! And Beck. And Jason Lee. And Kirstie Alley. And so on. So next time you look at Tom’s face, know that he truly believes he is some kind of super being with a life and life experiences that people like us cannot even begin to comprehend. Now go back and look at his face.

  36. chalkdustgirl says:

    Time for a trip to Brazil or a Manzier!

  37. Beth says:

    Tom Cruise, and many of Cameron Diaz’s other friends, got together for her 40th birthday. She was able to celebrate such a milestone in her life surrounded by people who care about her, and wanted only to wish her well on such a joyous occaision. It’s a shame that a whole bunch of media perverts could find nothing better to do with their time than to try and twist it around into something it wasn’t.

  38. Debsa says:

    The only sexual energy he has is with fellow Scientologist John Travolta…

  39. Megan White says:

    I hope this is true. They have been friends forever and I would love to see their kids. OMG, please make it true.

  40. Fan or Not says:

    Do any of you reading this article think for yourself? You think Scientologists are brainwashed but I did not read one original thought from the nah sayers … what exactly has Mr. Cruise done that was so horrible in his life that you are so cruel and negative towards him? He’s a person just like each of you. Would you like to read crap written about you and people “who have never even spoken a single word to you” trash talk and believe what the media prints. Get a life already.

  41. Dredz says:

    This pairing makes sense. They are both top of A-list, in fact, I can’t think of any other female equivalent of Cruise who can really carry a movie but Diaz or Angelina Jolie. Also Tom seems to enjoy a daredevil lifestyle which sporty Cameron can match. Imagine what a power couple they could be, however I think these two would stay only as friends, unless Tom can get Scientology out of his life.

  42. A Fan says:

    Trying to convince us that he’s any match for Cam-dirty girl-Diaz (and I say that with fondness), is comical.

  43. GirlyGirl says:


  44. jes_sayin says:

    Poor Tom. What has he gotten himself into.

    Honestly, does anyone think he could leave even if he really wanted to?? THAT’S how you know it’s a cult.

  45. karen says:

    …actually he looked mooby in the jail scenes in Ghost Protocol. No matter what the PR machine puts out there’s no holding back the years. Josh Holloway, on the other hand, looked totally awesome. If only he and Renner had exchanged roles…

  46. JC says:

    I think he looked great when he auditioned for American Idol !
