Today is a very special Tom Cruise Tuesday! It just so happens that Friday was October 6th, and October 6th was declared Tom Cruise Day in Japan! We’re celebrating today! Partly because it’s Tom Cruise Tuesday, and partly because we forgot that Wikipedia has the date wrong! XD
Yes, that’s right! Tom has his own national holiday in Japan, and has had one for eleven years now. Tom was awarded this high honor because he had visited Japan more than any other Western actor, and for his love and respect for the country. According to Hollywood.com’s article on the subject, his Last Samurai grossed $117 million more in Japan than it did in the United States.
Japan loves Tom! (Because they have good taste, people!) And Tom loves Japan right back. In fact, Tom loves all his fans! He loves them enough to spend hours signing autographs and taking pictures at red carpet events. So, in honor of Tom Cruise Day, we’re going to highlight Tom’s love for his fan base with a little picspam of Tom spending time with his fans! We’re not jealous. Seriously. Not jealous at all.
Here’s one of our favorites to start us off!
Read on for more pictures of some very lucky people!
Hope you have enjoyed looking at Tom hanging out with lots of lucky people around the world! We have never met Tom, but we can dream! And maybe one day, we will be lucky enough to catch him and tell him personally how much we appreciate everything he does.
Now go out and enjoy the rest of Tom Cruise Tuesday! We’re not sure exactly how it’s celebrated in Japan, but we will be headed to theaters tonight to watch “American Made” yet again. Have fun! And tell us in the comments how you celebrated Tom Cruise Day!
