Exclusive! Tom Cruise Fears He’s Old News
The main people to suffer will be Katie Holmes and Suri.
Tom Cruise has become impossible to live with. And not just because he’s a Scientology loving, nutcase either!
The actor is riddled with worries about his popularity and his upcoming movie opening, Knight and Day, with Cameron Diaz. “He’s nervous that his film isn’t going to do well, a source tells BettyConfidential. “He’s trying to promote it in any way he can. He’s so obsessed about it that he’s driving the household crazy.”
And when Tom suffers, Katie Holmes and little Suri suffer too! “He’s worried that he can’t carry a movie anymore, adds our source. “It was his idea to go to London and appear on stage with the Black Eyed Peas.” The band has written a special song titled, Someday for the film. “Fergie has a young following and Tom is hoping to get those fans in to see his movie. ‘He’s losing it,’” Katie told a friend. ‘He thinks he lost his audience.’”
The source adds that Tom is also nervous about the movie opening the same weekend as Grown Ups, starring Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock and David Spade and fears the film will really flop when the new Twilight film, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse opens the following weekend. Tom may never be able to compete with the likes of Taylor Lautner and Rob Pattinson.
“Tom begged the movie studio to move the date of the release, so it wasn’t in competition with Grown Ups and then Twilight,” our source adds. Fox decided to get a jump on the weekend and pushed the opening date to June 23, a mid-week opening, instead of Friday. “Tom is still nervous. This movie has to do well for him. He fears that he’s becoming immaterial in the business. There are so many hot young male stars out there that are replacing him.”
