Is Tom Cruise...


or real or is this all a publicity stunt for his waning movie, War of the Worlds? Does anyone else out there in Blog World think that Tom has jumped over the edge feet first? or more aptly, head first?

The latest member of Hollywood to join the growing ranks of the "I Think TC is Crazy" club is 81 year-old bonafide super-star, Lauren Bacall. "His whole behavior is so shocking, It's inappropriate and vulgar and absolutely unacceptable to use your private life to sell anything commercially, but I think it's kind of a sickness." says Bacall.

Bacall who was famous for her marriage to Humphrey Bogart and their movie collaborations, didn't stop there. She also took aim at the War of the Worlds star's thespian skills: "When you talk about a great actor, you're not talking about Tom Cruise." Wow... just rake TC over the coals, huh? Laugh

Bacall's no stranger to dissing the current crop of A-listers, especially in Cruise's sphere of influence. Last year, she ripped into a reporter who dared to refer to the former Mrs. Cruise, Nicole Kidman, as a "legend." "She's not a legend," Bacall snapped. "She can't be a legend at whatever age she have to be older."

Cruise has been under fire by everyone from Bacall to Brooke Shields since he began making the PR rounds to hype War of the Worlds, and in the process got engaged to Katie Holmes, sang the praises of Scientology and danced around Oprah's on-stage furniture. He has repeatedly slammed Shields' use of prescription drugs to treat postpartum depression, including during a tense sit-down with Matt Lauer on NBC's Today show in which Cruise also told Lauer that he (Lauer) knew nothing of "the history of psychiatry." I don't think Matt Lauer was impressed at all. Laugh.

Observations and Questions
So what's your take on TC? Has he finally slipped into the far reaches of space or has he made his point?
