Thoughts and Musings: Celebrityisms (a rarity here)  
Am I the only person out there that isn't squirked about the Katie Holmes/Tom Cruise relationship?

Okay, at first it was strangely peculiar that this was actually going to play out relatively well -- since, after all, it started out as a rumor (much like the Angelina/Brad scandal). However when it was officially confirmed that they were dating, I didn't particularly mind. It seems that everyone is nitpicking these two and are really irked by Katie Holmes romancing with an older man. Is it really that uncommon for a woman in her twenties to date someone in their thirties/fourties? Granted, it was hard to believe that it would've happened so soon with them, but I still cannot understand people's squeamish reactions.

In the overall situation, they're both rather mature adults and this is their choice. The media will get all over them, including the paparazzi -- because being a celebrity limits their freedom to privacy, now that their relationship is out in the open -- however, I'm not entirely squirkified by the fact that Katie and Tom are dating. In fact, it's rather sweet in my personal opinion. The Angelina/Brad thing, however, is iffy to either go yay or nay about.

The question now is: how long is the relationship going to last? Seeing that generally all celebrity relationships end up as either flings or short-term marriages.

Tom Cruise in general squicks me, so I suppose I may be biased. :D

Also, I thought older man/younger chick was The Way To Be in Hollywood? Because god forbid it is ever the other way around . . . Ashton and Demi aside. :P

I think the Way To Be by Hollywood standards nowadays is to be absolutely outrageous as possible, but still make the big bucks. The age thing doesn't really matter, I think people are irked because they see her with someone her own age....either that or they still believe her to be Joey from Dawson's Creek. *shrugs* I'll never understand the big deal. Then again, the Celebrity Scene is pretty much a circus anyway, it's hard to understand anything anymore.

I only like Tom Cruise because my mother is obsessed with the Mission Impossible movies and watches it whenever it comes on cable. He kinda grew on me after that.
