Tom KILLED it at the MTV Movie Awards as his Tropic Thunder character. Talk about fancy footwork!
Who knew Tom Cruise had such amazing moves? The A-list actor showed he could truly shake what his mama gave him at the MTV Movie Awards as his Tropic Thunder character, big-mouthed Hollywood producer Les Grossman. In fact, I thought his hilarious dance-off with Jennifer Lopez was a million times better than his tame performance with wife Katie Holmes at a charity dinner May 1.
The 47-year-old superstar was definitely the crowd favorite June 6 when he reprised his TT role. Breaking it down live in front of million of people, the unusually polished A-list actor bumped and grinded to J. Lo’s 2005 single ‘Get Right’ while his wife Katie, 31, cheered him on from the front row.
Tom’s MTV breakout dance was quite a contrast to the number he did with Katie at pal Hugh Jackman’s fundraiser in Los Angeles “A Fine Romance.” While Katie belted out a tame rendition of “Whatever Lola Wants, Lola Gets” from the musical Damn Yankees, Tom slunk around her, acting submissive as she taunted him with her “sexuality.” The only part that mildly interested me was watching TomKat make out at the end — it seemed so awkward and out of character!
Bottom line: Although he’s a crude and unattractive, I find Tom’s dance moves as Les Grossman far more entertaining than his real-life footwork. Watch the videos of each performance for yourself and tell us which one you like more!
