Does anyone remember when Tom Cruise saved some jet skiers from some kind of terrible water sport related accident? I can’t recall the details, but I do remember that he was widely regarded as some kind of real-life action hero. And he was all demur about it, like, “oh anyone would have done the same.”
Well, Mr. Anyone Would Have Done It, when you see a toddler getting trampled on by the mob of paparazzi that is there to film you in your daily walking/breathing exhibition, would it not be a reflex to save the kid? I don’t like to bestow a heightened sense of morality on celebrities just because they are famous, but I think it would be anyone’s instinct to lunge for the kid. Especially a parent of three!
Watch this video and see for yourself how blasé he is about the whole thing.
