    Not that Paris ever looked good to begin with, but that new hair color is so haggish!! It seriously makes her look her mother’s age! Bleck!

    Tom’s hug is like an air hug.

  3. doofus

    in order…

    that’s gotta be the most un-dad like hug I’ve ever seen. his daughter really does look like she’s never hugged him before and doesn’t know what to do. WEIRD.

    those “lyrics” (and I use that term VERY loosely) of the new K-fed “song” (also used loosely…) are SO FREAKIN’ LAME! “soared to the top”? of WHAT? the pile of your wife’s money? if you haven’t already, I recommend everyone read them for a good laugh.

    and katie, I agree 100%. That color makes her look like she’s OLD…and sort of ghostly…not a very good choice for her.

    Tom can’t hug his daughter right because she’s a girl….and we all know Tom thinks girls are icky.

    And right on Doofus…..I have nothing more to say about K-Fed except that I laugh every time I read about him.

  5. Cheesy

    Geesh. Does every hug from Tom have to look like he’s putting someone into a headlock?

    Tom, really, even your daughter doesn’t believe your affection!

  6. Rumor

    What has always bothered me about Tom Cruise is that he over-emotes as an actor and everything merits a huge grin or laugh, like a Cheshire Cat. He doesn’t act natural and relaxed.

    Poor kid. Her dad is doing the whole adoring thing, but he looks like he’s trying to jam a Scientology brain implant into her neck. She looks like she’s thinking, “Dad, what the hell are you doing?”

    I didn’t think it was possible, but it looks like K-Fed (aka “Daddy doo”) has actually come up with lyrics worse than “Popozao”!

    Give me a break guys!!! you can see all those (or lack of) emotions on that tiny still picture? are you all experts on body language?

  9. doofus

    to lucrece…

    no, we can’t. but we can see the body language in the OTHER PICTURES that miu linked to.

    and you don’t have to be an expert to see how awkward the daughter looks.

    Is she a teenager??? That would explain the look.. Most teenager Don’t liked to be hugged in public.. Ask most people with teenage children… Its considered uncool.

  11. symelanguage

    What’s with all these beautiful babes with fugly men? Naomi with Liev, Piper with Matt…are they depressed and don’t care anymore?
