“The Romantics” Premiere in NYC: Tom Cruise and I talk Fencing!

I had read somewhere that Tom Cruise had a fencing room in his house…
Tonight, I got the chance at the premiere of his wife Katie Holmes new movie “The Romantics” to ask him if that is indeed true…
Drum roll….
The answer is: Yes!
But…it was only when he was training for his movie The Last Samurai….he said he was practicing 5-hours a day to get ready! Wow!
Sadly, the fencing room no longer exists, but he did say that he watched the USA fencing team during the Beijing Olympics! NICE! 🙂  (He’s a really nice guy and you can tell he takes whatever he does very seriously)
We’ll count him as a fan! Now if I can just get him to the Fencing Masters 😉
The movie was great! Worth checking out!

Tom Cruise, David Beckham and Will Smith Fencing

Funny (old) interview in the UK Mirror of Will Smith who talks about how he, Tom Cruise and David Beckham fence together in a fencing room in Cruise’s apartment.  They also created this funny image of the three of them as the three musketeers. Very funny.

Will Smith‘s Comments:
“Tom has a room for training.   We don’t get enough time to hang out, just us three guys, so this is his way of getting together and bonding. David and I go to his home and just do fencing. It’s a lot of fun.”

Fencing Question of the day: What Celebrity Has a Fencing Room in His House?

Answer: Tom Cruise!

According to the website “He reportedly built a room in his house for fencing, where Will Smith and David Beckham go to attempt defeating him.” 


If I ever meet Tom Cruise that will be the first thing I ask him about!   If anyone has a picture of this room…send it to me!
