Mission Impossible: Stop Baffling Us

Tom Cruise says his "mission impossible" is to leave his wife and child right now. Only he flew to a different continent to announce it at a press conference.

And when he says, "I changed her first," it's not because he's competitive with his wife at all ("Get out of the way, Kate! I mean it! You're in my light!) or because he's trying to convince us that this fatherhood thing is real, I tell you, real.

And when he says, "I change diapers all the time. I have to tell you I love it," am I the only one who gets the sense that this avocation pre-dated the child?

And I'm sure that Defamer is already all over this, but I'll just say it anyway: I'm sure he personally changes all those diapers. Personally.

Is he trying to remind us that he has other children? Or has he forgotten about them too?

Oh, good point, K. I'd forgotten about his other children, too, ha, ha. But they're almost teenagers now, and unless there are, um, other problems, I don't think he's changed diapers in a while. Also, it's not like when they were adopted, he went on and on and on about his fatherliness, either. Though if I were Connor and Isabella, I'd be all, Phew, about that.
