Tom Cruise Shines at Rio's "Oblivion" Premiere (Photos)Shana Aborn
It’s been a few weeks since Carnaval, but Tom Cruise still had reason to celebrate in Rio de Janeiro this week.
He was in the festive Brazilian city for a red-carpet event honoring the premiere of his new blockbuster film, Oblivion. He stars as a drone repairman on post-apocalyptic Earth who discovers startling truths about the war and the society that remains there.
That high-wattage smile was out in full force as Tom greeted his enthusiastic fans and the assembled press. (Hard to believe he’s 50, isn’t it?) And if he was feeling at all tired from having just arrived from the world premiere in Buenos Aires on Wednesday night, he didn’t show it at all.
Take a look at the pics here.
