Tom Cruise launches own Web site

Tom Cruise launched this week, a Web site all about the movie star and famous Scientologist.

Tom Cruise launched this week, a Web site all about the movie star and famous Scientologist. It has been 25 years since Cruise's first starring role, in Risky Business, and the actor's reputation has had its ups and downs thanks to couch-jumping, Katie-marrying, and Brooke Shields-attacking.

But back to the Web site, where fans can watch video clips from Cruise's films, read his biography, go through photographs, and listen to new age music, which is actually a compilation of songs from Cruise's films.

The Web site might be a good way for the actor to get more in touch with his fans, especially those he may have alienated by his religious beliefs.

"In celebration of this occasion, and my 27 years of making movies, I created this site as a thank you, to you, for sharing the journey with me and to invite you to continue to explore what the future will bring," Cruise says in a note to fans. "My hope with this site is to bring you in and share with you the fun I experience every day during the filmmaking process, from working on the script, to the making of the film through to what we finally see when we settle into our seats and the lights go down."

In other Cruise PR news, the actor appeared in a two-part interview from his Telluride, Colo. home for The Oprah Winfrey Show, which aired on Friday and Monday. He discussed his previous appearance on the show (see above couch-jumping) and the fact that he regrets "discussing Brooke in any way" related to the actress' postpartum depression she discussed in her 2005 memoir, Down Came the Rain. also links to clips from the Oprah special.
