Tom Cruise Paid Actors To Pretend To Be Fans

When Tom Cruise arrived in India over the weekend to a throng of screaming fans, you’d just assume his superstar power knows no borders as it screeches across the sky on the wings of Scientology.. juice? I have no idea. Anyway, much like everything involved with the Church of L. Ron, it turns out a large chunk of those “fans” were actually paid actors with no fucking clue who Tom Cruise is, but all kinds of clue of how awesome lunch buffets are. Via Videogum:

In fact, the 200-and-odd people gathered there didn’t even know who he was and they couldn’t care less. They had been hired at the rate of Rs 150, or $3 per person approximately, by a model coordinator to do the same!
“Tom kaun? I don’t know who he is or what he does. We were told to come here by 1pm today and wait for a foreign VIP to come out of the airport gate and scream and shout when he came. None of us know who Tom is. There was a buffet lunch also for us and we were paid Rs 150 for this job today. We do this for television shows and other such events where crowds are required,” said one of the junior artistes at the airport, who was hired as an excited Tom fan.

While the primary source of this report is questionable, I actually believe it because a.) Scientology runs on nothing but pure bullshit manufactured to present the illusion that each of its members obtain unparalleled superstar status, and b.) the entire population of India is too busy making rednecks who should never be allowed near technology to go, “Kin I git someone who speaks gotdamn English?” to attend movie premieres. Fact.

    Clearly your mind has been corrupted by Lord Xenu. Queen Suri will make you pay one day for your disparaging remarks, unbeliever!!!

  9. So it’s finally come to this – Tom Cruise fans have to be outsourced.

  10. Roughen is not a right but a privilege.

    Isn’t this like getting fans under false pretense? His people should be charged with abusing human psychology. There ought to be a law.

  11. Rlg

    Is it really important whether they’re fans or paid actors?

    What’s short and brown and cries during sex?

    The Indian boy tied up in his hotel closet.

    Oh, yeah, because girls with an iPad and a BlackBerry need to be paid $3…

  26. So we’re saying that all these people holding up iPhones, which cost 20-30,000 rupees in India, can be had for a couple of hours for 150 rupees and a free lunch buffet. I don’t buy it. You pretty much only have to offer the free lunch; you don’t need to pay the 150 rupees, too.

    I can just imagine the slideshow at the next Scientology retreat: “This, of course, is one of the great wonders of today’s world. And behind him is the Taj Mahal.”

  28. Right, next your going to tell me his wife is a paid actre….oh.

    Considering how the British dealt with the natives there for so long, it should come as no suprise that the Indians have to be paid to give a good reception to the arrival of ANY white male (The sole exception being if he can bowl fast well, or bowl googlies well. Richard Hadlee is still revered as a God there).

  33. Terry

    Oldest trick in the book.

  34. lori

    “Tom Kaun” Ahhh hahhahahahahha!!!!!!!

  35. Steelerchick

    ha ha ha!! Now why doesn’t that surprise me that he has to pay people to pretend to like him or even know him, ha ha

  36. Zia

    Im Indian and this story is rubbish. Anil Kapoor, the Indian actor in the movie hosted a party for Tom and invited The Indian film fraternity. Thats all and yes Fans, real Fans went wild seeing Tom in India..stop hating

  37. Ron

    You know what also runs on nothing but pure bullshit, every other religion, hate to burst your bubble tho.
