Tom Cruise is a jackass

By: The Superficial / February 5, 2009

Tom Cruise’s stupidity almost caused an international incident while he’s in Brazil promoting his latest movie Valkyrie. Page Six reports:

Cruise tried to ingratiate himself to reporters by saying hola (hello) and gracias (thanks), not realizing that the language of Brazil is Portuguese, not Spanish. Accord ing to Glamurama.com, Cruise also said he fell in love with Brazil watching movies about samba and tango, unaware that tango is an Argentine dance.

Realizing he’d made a faux pas, Tom Cruise quickly relied on his OT training to diffuse the situation. He then asked for his favorite Brazilian dish, General Tso’s Chicken, because Scientology is a fake religion invented by a science fiction writer. Ba doom sha!
