From MC in Boston: on "the" Tom Cruise photo

As a stay at home mom of two boys ages 3 and 5, It"s such a nice change of pace from Dr. Seuss books and Tonka Trucks. Now that I have buttered you up, Please help me in solving this very important mystery ( we"ve been watching some Scooby Doo lately too ) I just must know, what"s the background on that Tom Cruise photo that appears so regularly in your column? What"s the source -- is it for real, or a doctored up thing? Did he actually pose for it? What were the circumstances? While I don"t know if you are willing or able to reveal such sensitive information, I just had to ask! I"ve looked around on the net for another instance of that photo, but haven’t been able to find it, Key words like Tom Cruise and slide only result in articles about his "slide into madness". FYI I have always been very anti-Tom -- even back to the Risky Business days -- something about him always bugged me, so I am loving his recent antics! By the way, If you"re interested in a quick and dirty run down on Scientology, I strongly recommend the book Hollywood, Interrupted. It has a very interesting chapter all about it. Thanks again for all the smut. Dear MC, Believe it or not, he actually POSED for this classic. In the pages of Rolling Stone circa 2004. What"s even more surprising is that his people actually allowed this to get out. Call me crazy but I can"t interpret this any other way. The man is clearly thinking of David Beckham and jerkin" it on a kiddie slide. In retrospect, maybe we shouldn"t have been so surprised when he started jumping on Oprah"s couch…
