Cruise Puts Crazy on Hold for Cancer Victim

5/5/2008 10:32 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The manic antics surrounding Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes were suddenly subdued when the mother of a two-year-old cancer victim ambushed them for support outside their New York hotel.


Tom was anything but glib while listening to the woman's story.

Grace was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma in Bristol Childrens Hospital, UK the same week my 15 month old son George was also diagnosed on the same ward with a less agressive form of Neuroblastoma. She is a dear little girl who along with her family are going through an incredibly hard fight including moving from the UK to New York for Grace to have life saving treatment only available at the Sloan Kettering Hospital - and at tremendous cost. Good on you Milicent, I hope this raises the profile of Grace's plight and Neuroblastoma.

Some of the comments here are about as low as I've ever seen anywhere. Sometimes things are exactly what they appear to be. Yet some are so demented they are compelled to find any explanation to turn good behavior into bad. And so it is here.

She looked like a plant to me. Anyone else find it quite odd that rigth after Oprah, there is a photo opportunity for Tom to magically help a child with cancer. How low will they sink to try to save Tom's career? This is another fake story that Tom's people have put out there. Just try to google all the fake news about Tom and all times he has 'saved' people at accident scenes. LMAO!!

No one's buying this crap Tom. No one but stupid Oprah. F'ing loon.

Mr Poop Scoop    

He is one of the most seriously intense person I have ever witnessed. Even when he laughs it seems forced. He must be a lot of fun to live with. Also, I think he has been mounting a MAJOR campaigne to improve his image and this may be part of it, sorry to say. As it stands I don't think any new movies with him starring would be profitable because the majority of the public think he is a stuck up whacko!

At least he stopped and listened to her as a "parent" like him or not, he was nice about it.

That was very nice of him to stop and listen. I do believe that Tom is on a major PR campaign to improve his image. He is just not a box office hit anymore due to all the scientology crap as well as the Matt Lauer interview and the Brooke Shields ordeal! I don't think he will ever be as popular as he used to be. He did it to himself!! A little creepy.................

Has anyone else noticed how Katie poses for the photogs? She puts the chin down and raises her eyes up............Like Princess Diana did!!!!!

I am guessing this lady is a plant. I doubt that Tom's people would allow that woman anywhere near him.

I knew somebody once who tried to approach Jane Fonda and was blocked by her security.

Even if this woman is for real, Tom won't do anything for her except to give her some Scientology classes. This is the same guy that gives "donations" to Scientology in people's names for Christmas gifts.

it does seem odd that with their wall of body guards, the mother of a child with cancer can break through to go to the only man on the planet "who can help"....someone is working overtime, really trying to make himself look human. Your no Brad Pitt, Tom!! If this isn't staged, good for the mom and hopefully Tom sacrifices some of his scientologay money to help her. Personally , I find it to much of a coincidence but for the sake of a child with cancer, I hope not.
