When Beckham Met Cruise

WHY does everybody hate Tom Cruise?”

The Sun’ Jane Moore asks the questions. And before we can cite his failed marriages, spacey beliefs and height-adjusted wedding photos, we quickly we learn that not everyone does hate Tom Cruise. The question is misleading.

Jane Moore does not hate Tom Cruise. She lists Tom’s attributes – two adopted children, good relationships with two ex-wives, no anti-Semitic rants and so forth

And neither does David Beckham hate Cruise. Dave was unable to attend Tom’s wedding, but he did, nonetheless, get a gift.

The Star says Posh and Becks spent weeks trying to find the perfect gift for Tom and his blushing bride Katie Holmes. A source talks of his ‘n’ hr watches and home décor nicknacks.”

But after reviewing the full Swatch range, adult dummy display rack and a TrampoCouch, Posh ‘n’ Becks finally settled on giving Tom a David Beckham. As the paper says, and the Sun confirms, David will give Tom’s children Connor, 11, and Isabella, 13, a football lesson.

Given the alternative – a singing and dancing lesson from Posh – this is a brilliant prize. What young football fan would not relish the chance to learn a few tricks from Becks, and wow their friends with their bending freekicks and knowledge of image rights?
