Tom Cruise has South Park episode banned in UK!

UK TV viewers will not get to see an episode of South Park which shows Nicole Kidman and fellow Scientologist John Travolta attempting to coax a fictional Tom Cruise character out of a closet, with Kidman saying: "Don't you think this has gone on long enough? It's time for you to come out of the closet. You're not fooling anyone."

Naturally, the robustly heterosexual Top Gun star took exception to this when Trapped in the Closet aired in the US. The episode also showed Stan - believed by the Cruise character to be the reincarnation of Scientology founder L Ron Hubbard - having a pop at Cruise's acting abilities, and Cruise reportedly waved the legal big stick at Paramount and threatened to sue if the offending programme was ever shown again.

An insider said: "Tom is famously very litigious and will go to great lengths to protect his reputation. Tom was said not to like the episode and Paramount just didn't dare risk showing it again. It's a shame that UK audiences will never see it because it's very funny." ®

To late already seen the best bits thanks to you, great site always logging on for more laughs
 
Ah, no worries U.K. folks. Thanks to people like Glen, you can watch it on the web.
 
T. C. is an insecure, impotent freak anyway. I say Katie was a fluke and he just wants to show the world he isn't 'gay'. Sorry boys and girls Tom Cruise is a fake H.S. with an all-season pass to freakyville and Katie is starting to smell the Lavender drawer-sachets.
