Book Review / Recap (cont.)

Chapters 2 and 3:

Still a dick. No other word for it really. Not nearly as boring as the first chapter, as the lies about his past start coming to the surface. (All of his High School Friends remember him being a B/C student, and he did just fine reading scripts for the school theatre productions. Tom, however, has stated in many interviews that he was a functional illiterate.) Chapter 3 has him as even more ego maniacal as his career starts taking off. A jerk with an attitude, and - as someone is quoted as saying - a personality "more bland than tofu, but without the taste." I guess he liked find out people's weaknesses and then call them out on it in public.

Ha Ha Ha! Always was a jerk. Always was this seemingly "intense" sort of guy that - after he was in the movie Taps (remember that one, ladies?) he took his ex-high school girlfriend aside at a party in NJ and told her, "I have taken Hollywood by the balls." Can't you just hear it??

Oh, also was a homophobe. Interesting.

More tomorrow.

The bigger the homophobe, the harder they fall when that special someone crosses thier path....repressed sexuality and all that Freud garbage! :) Just ask the pastor down in Co. Springs! hahah!

Ok I thought he was so cute in Top Gun...and ever since my neighbor, who looked just like TCruise came out of the closet, I became convinced that both Tommy's are queer!

Mmm. I didn't drool much over him and he's kind of a nutcase.

I'm waiting to hear that "they", along with his help, have kidnapped Katie while the world has been watching.

Glad to have you reading so I don't have to.
