Some dads try and be “in” by listening to the latest rappers, trying out the hippest slang, or signing up to Facebook. Tom Cruise, who was just spotted on stage with the Black Eyed Peas, has solidified his standing as an awesome pop, taking the Coolest Dad Award hands down for hanging out with tween lust object Robert Pattinson. If Isabella, 17, and Connor, 15, weren’t the most popular kids in school already, they certainly are now. I can almost hear the collective “OMG,” coming from the school yard.
The two shot a promo together for the upcoming MTV Movie Awards (yes, bonus cool points are added). Tom plays his character Len Grossman, Hollywood mega-mogul, from Tropic of Thunder and screams at the Twilight hunk when he says he was thinking about shaving and washing his famously messy locks. “Your filthy hair made you a star,’ Tom yells. “Your filthy hair made me hundreds of millions of dollars and sent my fat ass kid to space camp four times.”
It’s hilarious. Click through to watch.
