"American Psycho" director Mary Harron reveals that Christian Bale based his murderous character  Patrick Bateman on Tom Cruise.

"One day he (Bale) called

me and he had been watching Tom Cruise on David Letterman, and he just had this

very intense friendliness with nothing behind the eyes, and he was really taken

with this energy."

Gosh, that's what Katie Holmes and Nicole Kidman have probably said!

Do you see that in Tom's eyes too?

Or do you think he's got warm and friendly and sincere energy?

Katie Holmes doesn't cook. She bakes cupcakes.

Why are Tom and Katie on equal footing? Where's the hidden box?
