Shut Down Center of Tokyo for Movie Stunt?!

TOM CRUISE has an ambitious plan to shut down the centre of Tokyo, Japan for a week - for a movie stunt. The actor hinted the movie sequence would be shot for a fourth Mission: Impossible film - by winking at director JJ ABRAMS. He said, "People might not be very happy with the traffic but if they will please be patient and let us have it (downtown Tokyo) for one week, we will have a sequence that will be forever remembered." Cruise and Abrams did the same thing for Mission: Impossible III in Shanghai, China after government officials agreed to shut the city down at night for filming requirements.

"Actor Tom Cruise has been crowned the world's most powerful celebrity for the second time by US magazine Forbes.

Cruise, the only film star to make the top 10, first topped the business publication's annual rundown in 2001. He came 10th last year.

Tom Cruise has become the first celebrity to take the top spot twice.

"He rises back to the top, not after his sofa jumping antics on Oprah, but on the back of his $67m (£36m) earnings for War of the Worlds," Forbes said."

It's a girl! Welcome Daughter Suri! :-)

Tom Cruise and his fiance, Katie Holmes, welcomed the birth of a daughter.

I heard the good news today. They named her Suri, which "has its origins in Hebrew, meaning 'princess,' or in Persian, meaning 'red rose'.

The baby weighed 7 pounds, 7 ounces, and was 20 inches long. Both mother and daughter were doing well.

Scientology: The Fundamentals of Thought

In a recent TV interview Tom Cruise said that the best way to find out about the Scientology Religion is by reading a book and finding out for yourself. I think this is so true. I just finished reading several of the basic books and have to say it really is the only way to really find out what Scientology realy is.

What Travolta said about Silent Birth

The heavily pregnant Katie Holmes plans to adhere to the advice of having a quiet or silent birth. In this regard fellow Scientologist John Travolta says, "There are unwanted emotions and pain that goes along with any birth." Preston said the Scientology-friendly labor doesn't forbid the mum-to-be from yelling out in pain: "Screaming is fine... It's the words. If you can avoid saying certain phrases and words... Just try to keep it as quiet as possible. "Of course you're going to groan and yell. It hurts. Just keep it to a minimum."

Tom Singing in Action

 TOM CRUISE was so exhilarated on the first day of filming upcoming movie sequel MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE III he began singing the classic TV show's theme song midway through an action sequence.

The 43-year-old's impromptu a cappella performance left his co-star JONATHAN RHYS-MEYERS more than a little surprised.

Rhys-Meyers says, "The first day of shooting, Tom and I were on this speedboat. That was the first time I met him.

"The next thing I hear is him under his breath, 'Da-da-da-da-da-doodle-do.' He was so excited that he was humming the theme song.

"At first I thought they'd put the soundtrack on to give us more of a buzz. But it was Tom. Singing."
