tom cruise wants our eyes wide shut
You all know how to google, but here's Defamer and PopSugar and Yahoo News. The last is the only source of the three to name the director of the edited/censored film Thank You For Not Smoking.
If Cruise did cut the scene, I think it rates as his creepiest effort yet.
But if Thank You for Smoking director Jason Reitman did it for promotional reasons, he's fuckin brilliant. Or maybe he's just the son of a man whose been selling sex and teens and celebrity since Katie was just a twinkle in the eye of a Toledo housewife.* That would be Ivan Reitman, producer of Animal House (Landis, 1978) and other fine films in that tradition.
You know what I found creepy about Eyes Wide Shut? The way that USPS mailbox followed Cruise around London.
At the Scientologists' Annual Dinner Dance. (A cheap shot, but I couldn't help it.)
*Note: I do not know if Mrs. Holmes worked outside the home at any point before during or after little Katie's birth.
