I met Tom Cruise once, when I interviewed him for something or another. You know how you think you know what “charisma” means? You don’t, until you are in his presence. He just FILLS a room. It’s crazy. He looks right in your eyes, he laughs at your jokes, he makes you think “Wait, am I FRIENDS with TOM CRUISE?” And then he is gone in a puff of smoke, to dazzle a new room.
