Would you take relationship advice from Tom Cruise? Just ignore Xenu and the Crazy for a second, and just look at Tom as a man. Two divorces, married to his third wife who is 17 years younger than him, and who doesn’t even want him around while she’s working. Do you take relationship advice from that guy? You do if you’re David and Victoria Beckham. It seems Tom is hellbent on being the third wheel in the Beckham’s marriage while he and Katie are on different continents. Tom has taken it upon himself to tell Posh that she better get her house in order, and follow Becks wherever he goes, or their marriage will be in trouble. Because Tom is following the same advice…?
TOM CRUISE has become a self-appointed “relationship guru” to his good friends David and Victoria Beckham. The Hollywood actor, who is himself in a happy marriage with actress Katie Holmes, has been counselling Posh and Becks on how best to stay happy while juggling diverging careers, we hear.
A friend revealed that Tom’s pep talk has since had a “profound effect” on Victoria, 35, who is looking to make things easier for David during this tough time in his career.
“After an evening with David, Tom decided to have a friendly chat with Victoria about the family’s future, saying it was because he cared so much about all of them,” revealed a source.
“They love each other dearly but Tom is a big believer in talking about issues . He could see they were both worried about the future and what it might hold.”
The Mission Impossible actor is understood to be concerned that the former Spice Girl – who runs a successful fashion empire from her home in the US – will want to stay in Los Angeles while her husband, 35, heads back to Europe.
“He talked to her about David ageing, his football career, the pressures of disgruntled fans, his loneliness when away from the family and how time apart is how marriages can fall apart,” adds the source.
“Victoria knows that Tom has a point because she saw how their recent trip to the Seychelles really improved their relationship. It seems his heart to heart made a huge impact on her.”

If I were Posh, I would be screaming “Get off my husband, Tiny Tom!” You know, because Tom is all over the Golden Balls. But Posh isn’t me, and I could see how she would listen to Tom’s advice. And honestly, the advice isn’t that horrible. Yes, it’s not really feminist to think that a woman has to drop her career plans so that she can fully support her husband, but sh-t happens. Posh and Becks have been together ten years, and I’m sure there’s lots of compromises on both sides. But no matter what, Becks still isn’t going to let Tom have what he really wants – to be up close and personal with the Golden Balls.
