Paramount has made a lot of money with Tom Cruise.
Can't deny he has been a huge star.
He still is.
But, the studio wanted out of the exclusive, and in 2006
standards, out of date, deal it had with Tom.
But, why did Redstone decide to bash Cruise so publicly?
What do they know that we don't?
What is coming up the road for Tom in the bad PR
wars he's been in?
Cruise will be fine, he's going to do more films, make
more money, and that's just a fact. But, he is also
going to have to realize Mission Impossible 4 or 5 or 10
isn't the ticket. Near to 50, not 30 anymore Tom. He's
just not THE star he once was.
All of his weird antics, Scientology preaching, and
teen bride stealing behavior has made people look
at him as a loon, weird, odd, not quite right guy.
The couch jumping was just stupid.
Tom and Paramount are no more. In a very public way.
Nicole must just be smirking about now.
