Getting Cross

by | 22nd, February 2005

‘WHY is Tom Cruise smiling out at us from the front of the papers this morning?

It wasn’t just Sofia’s bum that attracted Tom

Is it, as the Sun claims, because he is secretly dating Latino [sic] actress Sofia Vergara?

Is it, as the Mirror seems to believe, because he is back with his Spanish ex, Penelope Cruz?

Or is it, as we at Anorak prefer to think, because someone had just told him what the Beckhams have named their child?

If it is the latter, then Tom is not alone in finding it funny that the name David and Victoria have chosen for their third son is in fact a girl’s name.

The Star says the England captain was ribbed mercilessly at training yesterday by his Read Madrid team-mates.

‘David has been hurt by people laughing at the name Cruz,’ a source says. ‘Both he and Victoria really love the name and are proud of it.

‘It may not be known as a boy’s name in Spain, but that’s not the case in Portugal and places like Brazil.’

And indeed Plymouth, for the Sun tracks down what must be the only other Cruz in the country to the Devon city.

Cruz Jones, who was named after a character in 1980s soap Santa Barbara, admitted he used to get stick for his name – but now he loves it.

‘I think it’s smart,’ he says, ‘and so do most of my mates. A lot of them wish they were called something different.’

Like Tom Cruise, perhaps. Not only does the diminutive actor get to be mates with Day-vid and Victoria, but (says the Sun) he gets to go out with the woman dubbed Miss Viagra.

The paper says the Hollywood superstar has enjoyed a string of romantic dinners with the Colombian-born Miss Vergara and is said to find her ‘enchanting’.

‘No wonder,’ says the Sun, ‘when she has a perfect bum to rival the world’s best – belonging to another Latino [sic] lovely, Jennifer Lopez.’

And there were we thinking that Charlize Theron’s bottom was now the butt of all our dreams.’
