Sharp Tongued Lauren Bacall Rips Idiot Tom Cruise

Bacall rips Cruise's 'vulgar' behavior

NEW YORK (AP) — Lauren Bacall has a few unkind words to say about Tom Cruise. In an interview in the Aug. 8 issue of Time magazine, now on newsstands, the 80-year-old actress says, "When you talk about a great actor, you're not talking about Tom Cruise."

"His whole behavior is so shocking," she says. "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."

Bacall was alluding to Cruise's displays of emotion and public courting of Katie Holmes in the weeks leading up to the release of his new film, "War of the Worlds." Cruise and Holmes became engaged in June after he proposed at the Eiffel Tower in Paris.

Last fall, Bacall made similar remarks about Cruise's ex-wife Nicole Kidman, her co-star in "Birth." While promoting the movie, Bacall became irritated when an interviewer described Kidman as "a legend."

"She's not a legend," Bacall said. "She can't be a legend at whatever age she is. ... You have to be older."

"Private Screenings: Lauren Bacall" and a marathon of Bacall's films were to air Monday on TCM.

Who with any sense cares about the posturings, gossips, and bickerings of Bacall, Kidman, and Cruise?

Nor have I (possessing sensibility as well as sense) ever seen any of their movies.

Yeah, I saw that one. Once.

Cruise is the Bush of the movie world, - and I don't even think Kidman is that pretty.

They're all grown adolescents.

Cruise isn't a very good actor (although in "Eyes Wide Shut" he was well cast) and I agree that Kidman isn't all that pretty. But chopped liver she ain't either.
