Freak On A Leash

I'm not too much of a Hollywood gossip hound but I can't help this weird creepy feeling I get looking at the new pictures of the Cruise-Holmes kid. There is just something ... unnatural looking ... something is not right in this Vanity Fair picture.

Moms, can you put your finger on what it is?

Maybe its just the fact that he's got her in his jacket like a puppy or the fact that she looks sort of like the quizno's baby that "talks" in such freaky ways. I just don't know.

Decide for yourself. The pics are online here.

I think she looks odd.

Odd that you bring up the point. My initial reaction upon seeing the face for the first time was "Damiana," or a female Damien from the Omen trilogy.

I have nothing to support that gut feeling except that Tom Cruise has thoroughly demonstrated his willingness, nay his EAGERness, to follow a false prophet.

What IS it about fame and riches that make ignorant egotists, specifically performers, believe that any sentient being could have the slightest interest in their limited, totally insular conception of reality?

I think the photos are retouched. Notice how there is not a hint of pink in the cheeks in the outside photos. Especially the cover where they look bundled up. You would think she would have a little pink in the cheeks. I think too, in photos, the babies pupils contract really tight from the flash, so the eyes have kind of an unreal, spacey look.

She looks too old to be that young of a baby.

Babalu hit it on the head. My initial reaction was Damien from The Omen. She is scary looking. My daughter had a pretty nice head of hair at birth, but rubbed it all off within a month. Then she looked something like Ho Chi Min. Dat Cruise baby be unnatural.

Puts me in mind of those hideous Cabbage Patch Dolls from the 80s. Who'd have thunk that a creature as gorgeous as Katie could have produced such unusual-looking offspring.
