A crew from a Channel 4 TV show in the U.K. sprayed water on Tom Cruise at the press line for the London premiere of War of the Worlds. It was apparently the latest episode for the crew, following similar acts against Paris Hilton and Sharon Osbourne… No idea what bruises Cruise’s ego more, getting sprayed with water as a public prank or being lumped into a celebrity category with Paris Hilton and Sharon Osbourne.
Channel 4 is trying its best to calm Cruise’s representatives, but as you can read in this Times story, Cruise may get litigious on them. “Tom does want to take action but we will decide in due course what that will be. He is not just going to forget about it,” says a spokesperson. Unfortunately for the pranksters, let’s not forget that Cruise has been known to take people to court from time to time.
