There are some weird families in Hollywood. And by weird, I mean wacko. So far out in left field that they ain’t even in the ballpark anymore. The whole Kutcher/Moore/Willis bunch are a few that top the list, and the Osmonds are a given. But Tom Cruise will also always rank up there when it comes to his family values and what he considers to be proper ways for people to conduct themselves. Many of these ‘values’ that Cruise holds dear relate to family issues, such as when he opened his trap about Brooke Shields dealing with her postpartum depression by using medication. Of course, that was eons ago and I suppose that Lord Cruise has now decided to turn his focus onto someone else in their ‘family’, and that person is Victoria Beckham, wife of course, of David Beckham.
This whole foursome is just weird. The whole Beckham/Cruise clan showing up everywhere together and doing really weird, personal things together is just a little too icky for my liking. But, Tommy-boy now wants to council Victoria about her marriage to David. Apparently, Tom had some very good points that Posh is going to seriously consider. Please. One of these ‘good points’ is that the two (Vicks and Becks) need to make a point of making time together because time apart can cause marriage a lot of stress. Does he realize that Victoria and David have been married for 10 years and have 3 children together? Not to mention the fact that they’re both mega-stars and might realize the stresses that brings to a relationship? This is what The Daily Express has to say about it via Celebitchy,
“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.”
I am tempted to laugh at this entire thing and shrug it off as a bad phony story made up on a slow news day. But Tom Cruise is so freakin condescending, I can just see him sitting Victoria down to have a heart-to-heart. Looking down at her with a frown on his face, shaking his head, acting like he’s God. And then, what’s she going to say about it? That the guy’s a moron and she really hopes that they can break off this life-long friendship soon?
And what could Victoria and David Beckham really have to worry about? The two are so stupidly in love with each other that it’s ridiculous and even if his career is in some sort of rocky patch (I’m not a big soccer follower), it’s not like they’re going to be forced to move their children into a shack. And Tom Cruise is trying to talk to her about it? What has he done recently? His wife is making guest appearances on dance shows and doing one Broadway play. I like Katie Holmes and I’m sure they’re not suffering either but, I don’t think Tom Cruise is in any position to look down on anyone.
I’m sure that Victoria and David are fine. And I’m sure that they’ll continue to be fine. And I really wish that someone would tell Tom Cruise to cram it once and for all.
