Cruise Polishing Image

Tom Cruise Zap2It has an article about the image fixing Tom Cruise is gearing up to do. You may know all about Cruise's odd antics over the past few months. You may not know that it is in part attributable to Cruise's separation from publicist Pat Kingsley. Kingsley gets referred to in a number of ways, not all complimentary. However, under all of the disparaging remarks, she appears to have been extremely effective in keeping the press in reign.

Cruise replaced Kingsley with his sister, and you have what happened the last few months... couch jumping and rants about psychiatry. The article is quick to point out that as the sister of the multi-milionaire actor, she might not have had the force of will to keep him under wraps. At the same point she didn't have the long term presence to manipulate the press.

So Cruise has gone back to a professional firm for his publicity needs. Only Xenu knows if they will be able to repair his reputation. -- Terence Ryan
