Tom Cruise may be one of the most controversial movie stars ever. His divorce from his third wife is tabloid fodder. Books and articles about his Scientology beliefs and how they affect his personal life have been escalating in the last few months.
But Cruise stayed in the movie-star comfort zone Thursday during his visit to "Jimmy Kimmel Live" in a studio within throwing distance of a Scientology center. Dutifully promoting his new film "Oblivion," their conversation was complelely edge-free.
The actor recalled his recent visit to Ireland, where two women gave him a gift that chronicled his family tree. He talked about his appetite for engaging in perilious physical endeavors on vactation.
