Tom Cruise Squirted In Face With Fake Microphone

I’d have to call this the most brilliant moment of the week, even though it’s only 10:30 a.m. on a Monday morning. Four men we’re arrested in the prank (three we’re filming it) for a new British comedy show. Have I ever said how much I love the British.

The London premiere of “War of the Worlds” turned into a war of words after Tom Cruise was squirted in the face by a man posing as a reporter.

The actor was outside a movie theater in central London’s Leicester Square on Sunday doing press interviews when a man squirted him with a water pistol disguised as a microphone, London’s Metropolitan Police said.

Cruise initially appeared to laugh at the incident but then asked the prankster: “Why would you do that?” As the man gave a barely audible excuse, Cruise said: “Do you like thinking less of people, is that it?” The prankster tried to walk away but Cruise reached across the metal barrier, held his arm and said: “Don’t run away. That’s incredibly rude. I’m here giving you an interview and you do that … it’s incredibly rude.”

The actor grew increasingly irritated and told the man: “You’re a jerk.” Footage of the incident appeared on Sky News TV on Monday.

He’s giving you an interview. Let’s all now bow down to Tom Cruise, our celebrity Lord and Master.
