Rumored closet cases Hugh Jackman and Tom Cruise appear at Walmart event!
Says Tom Cruise: [quote]"I've wanted to come here for quite some time, actually, because the culture you have here is like no other," Cruise told the audience. "I truly admire your company. [It's] a role model for how business can address some of the biggest issues facing our world."
The "Oblivion" star took the opportunity to praise Wal-Mart for "using its size and scale to improve women's lives across the world."
Walmart, the largest employer of women in the United States, was involved in the largest class action gender discrimination lawsuit in history, Dukes vs. Wal-Mart in 2011. In the suit plaintiffs claimed the company discriminated against women in "promotions, pay and job assignment." The suit was dismissed by the Supreme Court in for technical reasons.

Shows just how out of touch with reality he is if he "admires" Walmart.

Walmart doesn't address those issues, Walmart causes them.

Was this some kind of joke? I mean this can't be...can it?
If this really happened, someone needs to send it to Bill Mahr, SNL and all late night comics.

Tom Cruise is a high school drop out. This is the sort of thing people who didnt have the smarts to finish high school would say.

R5, I agree...but most only attack WalMart in the most benign way. The company is a monster -- it pushes for outsourcing and the cheapest labor possible (always pushing for more immigration). Whether WalMart is a Cause or Effect is the only question.
I suspect that people like Cruise are doing this to shore up further promotion for their products. How much you want to bet that WalMart will have a big campaign for Oblivion's release?

Huff Post called him on it

What's next for these two? A trip with Hilary Swank to visit a despot?

Probably R7. WB cut a special deal with Walmart through which Walmart was able to sell more than $10 million worth of Man of Steel tickets this opening weekend.

Shouldn't that read: The oblivious star took the opportunity to praise Walmart for its calculated use of women's lives, similar to his own in order to improve his career size and scale?

Clueless idiots. I'm disappointed in Jackman, would expect a bit more out of him than this. Cruise is a lost cause.

Video here too of it, and the commenters are onto him & his bs.
Jackman seems to get a pass though.

Can we wipe the slate clean and get all NEW famous people? Who wouldn't be caught dead at a Walmart?

That would be Kelly Clarkson R19, she was with that dynamic duo too.

Yep he was a drop out, if you replace Frankie Avalon for L Ron Hubbard in this vid it makes sense.

I was more impressed with the katest example of faux Noblesse Oblige we've created in this country.

Can we please get this thread deleted. This is the week we're pretending that Tom Cruise no longer exists.

Could TC look any more like David Miscavige in that creepy pic?
