  3. Silmarien Says:

    OMG, is he going to shove her face into the birthday cake?!!

  4. Gigolo Kitty Says:

    Awww so thoughtful! Now, if you will excuse me, I must go and throw up.

  5. distressedjeans Says:

    If you pull her hair she says, “Teekanga meep bloop sha beeeeeeeep!” meaning, “Im carrying the spawn of a green alien, happy birthday to ME.”

    No really, its true.

    A 27 year old has a birthday party in a toy store?!!!!
    Ayyyyyy! indeed.

  8. tinka Says:

    But why, why, why, the charade?!? If Tom came out, he’d be fine. Katie would be fine too. What’s the damn point? I know there’s supposed to be the ‘Scientology shakedown’, but are there actual rules against being gay? And I could understand this better at an earlier point in his career, but why now? And how many ordinary women would really take this job? Could somebody please explain this to me? It doesn’t add up.

    I wonder if that’s Xenu-flavored cake?

    Manolo – cant even spell the second half

  12. desertwind Says:

    Why does he look so serious? The girlfriend is just blowing out the birthday candles. No biggie.

    I feel sort of sorry for the chicklet.

  13. shiloh Says:

    is she the only hollywood female who looks less than radiant when in the family way? or is the spawn of tom getting to mommy?

  14. divina lucilla Says:

    i think he is holding her hair to avod that she gets on fire….but with these two, you can never say…

  15. the urban chick Says:

    the silent barfing, it is the acquired skill

  16. Fashionally Challenged Says:

    Oh, the fun with Photoshop this picture will generate…

  17. dimestore lipstick Says:

    Why does it look like she’s getting ready to extinguish the cash register?

  18. paleface Says:

    It’s pretty clear he’s not used to touching women. Just look at the way he’s holding her hair. It is NOT super fantastic.

  19. Cat Says:

    “Anyone else think of Michael Jackson when they heard the part about FAO Schwartz?”

    Manolo, this photo caption made me spew coffee all over my desk. :)

  20. Annalucia Says:

    Something is wrong with this picture (besides the presence of the Tom Cruise). The Katie does not appear to be huffing in the direction of the candles, which are off to her right. Perhaps the Dimestore Lipstick is correct and she is facing the cash register. One can only hope that the drawer was closed at the time of the photo-snap.

  21. Teeth of the Hydra Says:

    Fine examples of the “Cash But No Class” crew.

  22. marsha Says:

    I used to really like Tom Cruise but this past year has really shown another side of him that made me take a step back. He is psychotic. I also thought it was cute when those two got together, but everytime I see them now I feel nothing but sadness. For her.

    I mean there has always been women who have joked that they would love to Mrs. whoever to a big star and he could do whatever he wanted. But I think Katie Holmes has taken that to heart. She said she had his poster on the wall and mentally I think she is seeing him that way still. This huge untouchable star that she managed to snag and he could do no wrong. She will give up everything and do whatever to keep him.

    I’m just waiting for the day that she chews through her ankle chain, escapes and gives us the juicy gossip on Mr. Psycho Cruise.

  23. Ryno Says:

    He may be a psycho, but he is at least aware that his babe does not have flame-resistant hair. Let’s hear it for putting safety first! In the future we should look for pictures of him leading her away from precipitous ledges, and bad neighborhoods.

  24. DesignerElla Says:

    Exactly, this is what I have always seen in this photo. Your recapture of the old title is perfect.
