When Tom Cruise is promoting a movie, you can’t escape him. He’s tireless. 89 countries in 8 hours! You know. You’ve seen the Tom Cruise press tour. When he’s done with the press tour though, he’s very good at going back undercover. Like Brange, generally he can move around undetected if he’s not working. Full Story

Brange gave an exclusive interview to Tom Brokaw for The Today Show to promote By The Sea. I’ve attached the video below. It’s just under 8 minutes and he speaks to both of them individually and also together. There’s a cute moment when Brad’s basically like, yeah, my wife can’t cook, but mostly we’re pretty serious here, discussing Angelina’s double mastectomy and her decision to have her ovaries removed this year. Full Story
