Could actor Tom Cruise be even less popular than a mass murderer?
Respondents in a poll said theyd rather spend the night with deposed Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein than the "Mission Impossible star.
Stuff Magazine asked readers who among four personalities they would least like to share a camping tent with overnight. Cruise took the prize with 41 percent, with Saddam trailing at 39 percent. Sportscaster/celebrity reporter Pat OBrien got 15 percent and actress/comedienne Kathy Griffin, 5 percent.
Its been a bad few weeks for Cruise. He recently "won an unwanted Razzie award at a ceremony acknowledging the year's worst films and stars.
Cruise - who is engaged to pregnant actress Katie Holmes - was given the Most Tiresome Tabloid Target prize for his embarrassing behavior last year, which included the now infamous "couch jumping incident on Oprah Winfreys show, proposing to Holmes at the Eiffel Tower and his gushing pregnancy announcement.
Well, at least Saddam is good for laughs.
I hate camping, but I'd share a tent with Tom Selleck. ;-D
The only time Tom Cruise was appealing was in Top Gun. It was a great part- he did a marvelous job and then it was over. (IMO)
Seriously, I would rather go camping with Saddam than Kathy Griffin, too.
Ping. Tom Cruise/Saddam Hussein. What a choice!
Who would you rather share a tent with??? What kind of Brokeback poll was this?
Good actions scenes, incredibly bad acting.
BTW, if Cruise got 41% and Saddam got 39%, how does that make him LESS popular than the Butcher of Baghdad? Someone failed Statistics (or, as I like to call it when emailing my professor, "How To Lie With Numbers")
Geez, if those are my only choices I'll take
E) A bottle of sleeping pills

At least in camping with Saddam, you could enjoy a hearty laugh as he fondly reminisced about the good ole' days of torturing political dissidents in front of their children and regaled all with his hilarious tales of amputating the arms of opposition journalists. Haha! That crazy Saddam! What a prankster!
Camping with Cruise, on the other hand, would be just plain creepy!
