First off, we got word that Tom would be showing up around 4:45pm, more than an hour before anyone else. Clearly this meant to us he would be signing all this time and I guess technically he did but I just didn't like the way he did. Before you think I am bitching and moaning, let me explain!
A friend who was 2 spots before me asked Tom for a picture with and got it and 3 autographs. A friend next to me didn't ask for a photo with and got NO autographs and had to spend the next 30 minutes running down the barricade to try and get him. I asked him for a picture with and got it (see above!) and got 3 autographs right then as well. Friend after me asked for photo with and got it and 3 autographs. Next 2 friends didn't ask for a photo op and got 1 TOTAL autograph. All down the line this is what Tom did. Ask for a photo op and get autographs. Don't and get nothing. That's a bit absurd to me. Especially when you don't know that is how it is going to go.
PLUS, Tom was REFUSING to acknowledge anyone in the second row. With the amount of fans Tom Cruise has there is no physical way everyone could be in the front row. I heard people from out of state and out of the country in the second row asking him to sign and he just ignored them. Hell, he ignored people in the front row!
Let me be clear about something. I am a HUGE fan of Tom Cruise. One of my all-time favorite actors. Hell, I have had him sign a poster shot of the movie Magnolia before (which by the way is one FREAKING GREAT MOVIE if you haven't seen it.) It's just that this rubbed me the wrong way and plenty others the wrong way. For a guy to sign for that long and for so many people to walk away with a bad taste in their mouth really tells you something.
Anyways, this is what I got and I am happy about it I just wish more people felt the same.
Along with Tom Cruise, I also got Julianne Hough, Malin Akerman, Russell Brand, Diego Boneta, CC Deville, Catherine Zeta Jones and Bobby Dall on this.
Julianne Hough showed up and along with the cast shot I also got her on 2 individual photos.
Malin Akerman was super nice again, as always, and I got her on 2 photos. I could of got more but I just didn't have any more with me.
