In what could be one of the most delicious little moments, Us Magazine reports that Tom Cruise has given Spencer Pratt some advice on relationships. On last night’s The Hills Live After Show, a pre-taped interview clip of Tom Cruise answering a question about the Spencer and Heidi elopement was shown. When given the rundown of the events that led to the elopement, the actor said that it was a mistake to elope knowing that Heidi had always dreamed of having a large wedding, saying, “If the girl wants the wedding, you gotta do the wedding…It's a special occasion, and she'll remember it forever. Spencer... dude... you'll realize this later.
In typical douche-y fashion, Spencer replied via Us Magazine, saying, “You all know how I feel about big weddings, but if Tom Cruise says so, it must be true. If Tom's the best man, we'll have a big wedding!”
So, a couple of points here: first is that I think that Tom Cruise making a comment about reality television was a stroke of genius. He looked very patient despite the fact that he was interviewed by basically two interns who have suddenly gotten camera time and made him give Spencer advice by talking to a photograph of him. Way to go, Tom. What would make it even more hilarious is if we suddenly find out that Katie is a fan.
As for the advice, it is very sage and smart. Despite the fact that I am totally convinced this wedding was a huge publicity stunt (look for said wedding to wind up as part of the cliffhanger for the season finale on December 22nd), if these two really do love each other then you have to give Heidi her dream wedding or some day she might look back with regret that her friends and family weren’t there to see her get married. As someone who loves being the center of attention, I cannot imagine that Heidi would really want to give up a chance to have her big day with the dress and the cake and the whole nine yards. Getting married is such a big deal that you should really do what you can to make it the day all your dreams come true.
Although something tells me that eloping won’t be the only regret Heidi has after she has been married to Spencer for a while…
