Update:It turns out Tom Cruise was actually being sarcastic when he made the statement about eating the placenta, trying to make fun of what people would actually believe he would do. Be that as it may, the fact that so many people actually believed he might go through with the stated intention will likely have some effect on his future PR strategy.

Original entry:In case you missed it (via newsvine)… here’s something to consider when deciding which movies to watch. Of course, we don’t know if the report is true, but I’m not sure how much benefit of the doubt I’m willing to give Mr Cruise these days.

“Hollywood actor and Scientologist Tom Cruise is planning to eat Katie Holmes’ placenta.

It is the latest in a series of strange revelations by the 43-year-old ‘Mission: Impossible’ star about the child he is expecting with fiancee Katie Holmes.

Cruise told GQ magazine: ‘I’m gonna eat the placenta. I thought that would be good. Very nutritious. I’m gonna eat the cord and the placenta right there.'”
