Cruise Crashes Samba Party
- Movie star and Brazil fans come together on Leicester Square

TOM CRUISE came up against Brazilian football fans in Leicester Square last night at the premiere of his latest movie, Minority Report.

With Brazil having beaten Turkey to reach the World Cup final earlier in the day, fans carrying huge yellow and blue flags thronged the square in competition with the many thousands who had turned up to gawp at Cruise.

It was a bizarre clash of cultures, bt one that failed to dislodge Cruise's bonhomie as the diminutive star chatted happily with fans and even talked with their friends via mobile phone.

"It's great fun to chat to people's friends and family members on the phone," Cruise said. "I just say 'hello, how are you?', but most of the time they don't believe it's me. So sometimes they hang up."
