I fail to see the connection that some critics are making between Tom Cruise's new over exposure of his personal life possibly affecting his box office appeal. I think it is wonderful that Tom was able to find a new relationship and experience such exhiliarating, intense, and raw emotions at this point in his life. Tom seems like a marrying kind of guy and he had been floundering around fairly single for over four years.
Even though his excitment about this new relationship has been over the top, it has not impacted how I view him as a very good still boyishly appealing actor and good guy for the most part. Nicole Kidman is still my favorite of his lady loves and I don't think any of his later lady loves have come close to exhibiting her natural elegance and talent. But Tom is the one doing the dismissing and picking.
