might be the first Hollywood celeb to start posting on Vkontakte, but he also knows that sometimes going first or second is the way to go. We're assuming that he came to this revelation while posting personality tests, castles made of matchsticks, this profile photo, and pictures of cats. Tons of cats. After all, we all know how feline curiosity turned out. That's why he won't be the first to go up when Richard Branson begins service on his Virgin Galactic space airline.
The Weyland-esque entrepreneur has celebs scrambling for seats on his $200,000-a-pop, yet to be airborne space flights, with big names like , his lovely partner , Steve jOBS doppelganger , Apollo 13 star among the privileged group of people ready to go into the cosmos. With all of these A-listers, it's no surprise that Cruise says he would be willing to put himself on the list too.
What's surprising is that this ambitious type-A isn't willing to be one of the first. He told Virgin Media:
I'm going to let a couple of other people test it out first but it would be great. I was always hoping when I was a kid that we would be travelling to different planets by now.
"Test it out first," Tom? Reminds me of that time when I was a little kid and my friend and I wanted to sneak through the sometimes switched-on electric fencing around the cow pen at her family's dairy farm. "You test it out first," she said. Those words haunt me to this day.
