There have been lots of reports and photo evidence suggesting that Tom Cruise is good pals with David Beckham, but a new book goes into detail about just how close Cruise and Beckham really are. In the forthcoming title, The Beckham Experiment, by Grant Wahl, we learn that Cruise has had quite a powerful impact on Beckham ever since they met in 2003. The two stars share the same agency (CAA), PR flack, physical therapist, and they live five minutes from one another in Beverly Hills. The Cruises even threw the Beckhams a “Welcome to L.A.” party when the family moved across the pond, and Becks claims it was Cruise who convinced him to take the job with the L.A Galaxy soccer team. That’s an awful lot of caring and sharing.
Beckham also admits that his youngest son, Cruz, who was born in 2005, is something of a namesake of Tom. Beckham told Wahl, “I must admit, when [Victoria and I] met Tom, I remember turning around to Victoria and saying, ‘Cruise is a great name, but we could spell it different.”
Beckham does show a measure of resistance though when it comes to Scientology, Cruise’s notorious religion. Beckham says “He and Katie have their beliefs … but me and Victoria have also got our own.” [Photo: Filmmagic]
Forget Perez Hilton’s black eye. Hell, forget Iran. Cameron Diaz has skin problems. The FABlife‘s Becky Howard reported this morning that the actress was given her own star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame, but our writer mistakenly focused on Tom Cruise‘s sweaty armpits while missing the real story (don’t worry, she’s been punished), which is all about Cameron’s psoriasis — a skin “disease” that does not easily clear up. And can come back at any time!
According to “celebrity skin expert” Vail Reese, a doctor who hands out the annual Skinnies Awards, there is little hope for Cameron’s skin. “After battling acne for years, yet another skin condition to deal with!,” explains the doctor. “She has also suffered with facial pigmentation issues and sun overexposure.” Oh my. Shouldn’t Hollywood be hiding Cameron, not promoting her? We wouldn’t want this condition spreading to other A-listers. Our economy couldn’t handle it.
Cameron Diaz got her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame yesterday, and her ceremony brought out some seriously A-list supporters. Cammy’s pals bigging her up on the achievement included Lucy Liu, plus Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes. All the excitement must have got to poor Tom, as he showed off some seriously sweaty pits when going in for a hug. [Photos: Splash News Online]
Take this tidbit with a grain of rice: Suri Cruise apparently insists on only eating with chopsticks. Forget forks, sporks and her dainty little fingers – this celebrity kid eats her Lunchables like she’s downing sushi from Nobu.
According to an anonymous source, Suri “doesn’t like to eat with anything else.” During a recent visit to posh bakery Le Pain Quotidien, Tom Cruise‘s spawn supposedly “wouldn’t touch her sandwich and pastries without them!”
Poor Katie Holmes now has to lug around a pair of her daughter’s preferred eating untensils in her Hermes Birkin bag. Says the spy, “It’s the only way she can get her to eat!” [Photo: GettyImages]
Suri Cruise celebrated her third birthday Thursday afternoon with a princess-themed party at the home of her parents, Tom Crusie and Katie Holmes.
Friends and family ate a cake featuring Belle from Beauty and the Beast and participated in a treasure hunt.
“They just wanted to keep it small and make it fun for Suri and her friends,” a source tells People. [Photo: Getty Images]
What a lucky girl! After her third birthday later this week, Suri Cruise is going to go to school to learn about counting, her ABC and the great works of Xenu. The super cool tot is to attend the Church of Scientology’s New Village Academy five days a week, which has already garnered criticism for some of its teaching methods.
“The children have a lot of responsibilities from a very young age. The school is particularly strict about nutrition, demanding a low-carb, low-sodium and low-sugar organic diet,” reports a source.
Oooh, sounds “fun.” Of course, we’re only joking. Turning three is a serious occasion and it’s about time Suri knuckled down and concentrated on her “study technology.” The fun stops here! [Photo: Splash News Online]
Is Katie Holmes pregnant again? That’s what OK! magazine is putting out there this week, claiming the actress and husband Tom Cruise is “deliriously happy that Suri will be a big sister. They’ve always planned on expanding their family. They’re over the moon.” And totally predictably, their story’s been shot down by her rep, who says, “There’s no truth to that story.”
As usual with celebrity sperminations, there’s no telling what the truth is until time passes. It’s the official reaction to deny a pregnancy until past the 12-week stage (like Ashlee Simpson), but then again, tabloids have been known to get it very wrong indeed. And as Katie was spotted out late last night eating sushi with Victoria Beckham, we’re going to file this one under “uh-huh” until we see any extra poundage around her teeny-tiny middle.

Suri Cruise and Shiloh Jolie-Pitt—together at last! OK! Magazine is ecstatic with news of a celebrity baby summit. “BEST FRIENDS!” crows the headline, though the photoshopped cover undermines the implication that the pair have already met over giggles and cupcakes. Based on the preview article, the meeting remains in Katie Holmes‘ head—or the head of their anonymous source.
Katie loves entertaining and spoke to Angelina [Jolie] about having an at-home tea party with cupcakes for the girls. It’s something she has wanted to do for ages. Because of security reasons, Katie can’t have just any child over to her home. But with celebrity tots like Shiloh and Zahara, there’s no problem.
Zahara? Who the hell is Zahara? Oh right, that’s Brangelina’s adopted kid. Funny she isn’t on the cover, no? Supposedly the as-yet-unscheduled playdate was dreamed up when the four parents met at a Golden Globes’ after party and the papas bonded over memories of Interview With A Vampire (if only we could give them ours). “Both talked at length about their children, and they agreed to get their little girls together.”
“Katie told Angelina she just knew Suri and Shiloh are going to get along fantastically well,” says OK!‘s source, “and Suri is already getting into the idea.” Suri might be jazzed to interact with another child, but we’re guessing Shiloh is playing it cool. Bet she smirks at overenthusiastic dorks just like mommy does.
