Cruise keeps an eye on "fetus"
E! Online ^ | 11/23/2005 | Sarah Hall

Posted on 11/25/2005 7:13:46 AM PST by Qwertrew

Tom Cruise has already claimed to know the history of psychiatry. Now he's working on getting acquainted with OB/GYN.

The couch-jumping thesp has acquired a sonogram machine with which to personally track the progress of the fetus currently incased in his fiancee Katie Holmes' womb.

Cruise revealed the purchase during an interview with Barbara Walters taped Oct. 30 for the veteran newswoman's upcoming special, Barbara Walters Presents: The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2005, scheduled to air Tuesday on ABC. "I bought a sonogram machine," Cruise told Walters. "I am going to donate it to a hospital when we are done."

Somewhat startled, Walters replied, "Wait, you are going to do your own sonogram?"

"Yes," Cruise replied, chuckling.

Sonogram machines, which use ultrasound waves to monitor a baby's development, can cost anywhere from $15,000 to $200,000. No word on how much Cruise shelled out to purchase his own.

Cruise told Walters he did not yet know the sex of his first genetic offspring.

"Barbara, I would tell you," he said. "I would say, 'I know if it's a boy or a girl, and I'm not telling you.' "

"So what do you see?" Walters asked. "A little baby," the actor replied.

Fascinating, indeed.

The War of the Worlds star also told Walters that he and Holmes would wait to get married until after their child's birth, though it's unclear exactly when that blessed event may occur.

"We are going to get married next summer or early fall," he told Walters. "We don't have a date set yet."

The affianced duo recently departed for Shanghai, where they'll spend a couple of weeks while Cruise films scenes for Mission: Impossible 3.

According to the Shanghai Daily's Website, Cruise and Holmes have been taking in the local sights, including the Chenghuang Temple, a resort featuring old-style architecture, as well as dining heartily on Sichuan cuisine.

God, I feel sorry for that baby. I bet he makes screaming basket cases out of everyone he comes in contact with.

And wasn't there some concern a few years ago about frequent ultra-sounds causing hearing problems in babies developing in utero?

I'm no doctor, but frequent ultrasounds can't be good for the baby.

Bwahahaha!
What a farce is Sleazywood and its inhabitants.

What is so pathetic is the number of people/groupies who find him and his ilk (Who can blame them for luvin' the adulation?) so fascinating, wunnerful and worthwhile.

Cruise says he sees "a little baby." Don't let his buddies in Hollywood hear that. Doesn't he know it's not a baby and just a clump of cells? (Sarcasm/Heavy)

He's possibly concerned about Xenu doing in utero genetic modifications; maybe doesn't want this to happen.

Shouldn't the big question be, "Who the hell is the father ?" Assuming he has ever had sex with a female, it is widely believed he is sterile.

But, Lord Almighty, what the hell was Katie thinking ?

This is not meant to criticize your post. I just can't imagine why anyone would care what this kook does! Sometimes I think the best way to deal with the nutcases of the world is to not pay attention to them. Imagine if Cruise, Jackson, Sharpton, Sheehan, and other assorted nutcases never got any print or camera time. They thrive on the attention. Maybe without it they would find something useful (or at least less harmful) to do with their lives.

What kind of metrosexual is this touchy-feely moonbat, anyhow? He makes my flesh crawl.

I'll bet they never get married. But then, who cares.

There's so many babies being born to weird Hollywood parents, married or not, that a baby with normal, married, faithful and unselfish show biz parents will be the odd-kid-out and will have severe psychological problems throughout life.

How does owning a sonagram fit in with his "religion"? To say nothing of not yet being married to the mother of his child. Seems he's picking and choosing what to follow. A "cafeteria Christian" if at all.

That was almost exactly what I said to my husband - "Aw, isn't that cute. Tom's gonna perform his own ultrasounds on that baby Katie got from somewhere."

Ultrasounds are fabulous, magical, wonderful. There is a movement among pro-lifers to establish a few of these machines across the country to offer free "baby pictures" in the hope that an informed choice might prevent some abortions.

I don't know if one every day is a good thing--but please don't talk down ultrasounds because of one nut.

What has Cruise done to earn the ire of FReepers? So what if he is a Scientologist and has enough money to buy a sonogram.

Is he hurting anyone?

Is he criticizing the war or the troops?

No, he's just a happy father-to-be. And I'm happy for him.

I recently saw him in an extensive interview on "E", and I have never seen such an ego. Everything is about him. He said he wishes he could be his own kid, because he's such a spectacular father. He's also, he says, a fabulous brother, and the world's greatest son. He's a loon. I think he's a wonderful actor, but that's beside the point. Pat Kingsley, his former long-time PR hack deserves a medal (or maybe an Oscar) for doing such a great job of masking/hiding his whackiness so well for so many years.

I'm not talking down ultrasounds. Just advocating against repeated, every day use, which can induce a miscarriage.

Talked to a guy who was on the aircraft carrier when Top Gun was being filmed. he said the guy is a pompous, egotistical, piehole.
There are new studies showing that when you 'tweak' the ultrasound machine to get a more distinct image you enter a realm of the unknown. But he will probably just make a movie of the handicapped child.

Methinks that poor Katie will have a "tragic miscarriage" sometime in the next few months, all the while adding nary a pound to her figure nor the slightest tummy bulge to her waistline. Im other words, it's all a publicity stunt.

This reminds me of Michael Jackson buying the hyperbolic chamber. Just because you have enough money to do something extravagant, doesn't mean it's the wise thing to do. There is something so egocentric about wanting to circumvent the accepted medical practice of having your doctor take sonograms at the appropriate times, and instead treating the procedure as a personal perk. It's just plain nutty and over-the-top.

Tom Cruise has quietly dropped his $100 million lawsuit against Kyle Bradford's wife for telling the National Enquirer that her husband frequently bragged about having an affair with Cruise. This week's National Enquirer cover screams, "Tom Cruise Settles Gay Lawsuit! - The Secret Payoff Deal," but the article isn't available on the Enquirer website.

Tom Cruise...that boy ain't right.

On the other hand, I like the mental image of one of Katie's ultrasounds going like this:

"Man, it is really hot in here...Mom! [fweet!] Yo, Mom! You're not wolfin' down jalapeños again, are ya?...Yeah, 'cause let me tell you about my friend, Ned. His momma ate nothin' but spicy foods?...Homeboy came out red, Ma. Bright red. So if you keep crammin' those peppers down your neck, I might just bust out of here early...grab something on the way out, take it with me."

Cruise is also freaking out because his lawyer Bert Fields is going to indicted in the next week for hiring Anthony Pellicano for wiretapping clients.

Fields apparantly had Pellicano wiretap Nicole Kidman on behald of Tom Cruise so they could use the info against her in Cruise's divorce offer to her. Cruise is saying that he didn't know that the dirt on his ex wife was collected by Pellicano's wiretaps, but the truth will come out in the trial.

I think Cruise insane behavior and actions is actually prompted by the upcoming Pellicano-Fields wiretap indictments.

Note that Pellicano was the same goon who was hired by Hillary Clinton to wiretap and threaten Gennifer Flowers and by Michael Jackson to wiretap and threaten his sexual abuse victims.

Buy some popcorn. Hollyweird is going to be fun to watch after Thanksgiving.

"A lawmaker in Illinois has sponsored and passed a bill to make it illegal to perform ultrasounds without a prescription in that state. For those who don’t follow these things, Planned Parenthood the largest abortion provider in the US has been increasingly concerned about the affect of ultrasound imagery on business. It seems that most women, upon seeing their child in utero, shun the procedure."

Re your question on who is the father.

You've heard it here first. Put your tin-foil hat on but be prepared for it to be true. I think Ron Hubbard probably had some sperm frozen before he died and Katie Holmes has been impregnated with it. We have some Rosemary's Baby action going on. If that baby has red hair - you know I'm right!

Cruise was mainly surprised at seeing "a little baby" because he thought that his offspring would still be in clam form at this point.

Obviously you have forgotten when Tom left his wife, Nicole Kidman , and she took their store bought kids to Australia. Tom said he was happy about them being raised in Australia because the USA was an unfit place to raise kids.

That kind of raised my ire.

I agree. Ultrasounds seem like such simple things, but are there risks to having them done so frequently? And is a professional reading any of those ultrasounds? Does Tom know how to look for spina bifida? hydrocephalus?

I feel like a little kid was just turned loose with an H-bomb.

Maybe Tom should get an x-ray machine and he could take an x-ray every hour and make a little movie out of it. Great experiment for a scientologist!

We have become a bastard nation. I see more and more people having children first and then getting married later or not getting married at all. You are right, the child does not deserve the term "bastard" but unfortunately that's what it's parents have given it by not considering committing to each other first before committing to a child.
