Tom Cruise is unstoppable

File Under:
Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes at the 2005 MTV Movie Awards.

Okay, so Viacom is doing everything possible to salvage what's left of Kooky Cruise and their War of the Worlds/MI:3 investment by handing him a MTV lifetime achievement award so he can do some much-needed damage control.

How did they do this, you ask? They coached him to reel in his huge ego and act "normal".

"Most of us first met this man when he was dancing in his underwear and feeling the need for speed," Holmes said before introducing a clip reel of Cruise's film history, which she watched with rapt attention. At the end, the actress pumped her arms, then marched off stage to retrieve Cruise who was waiting in the wings, a move that mirrored Cruise's much-replayed performance on the Oprah Winfrey Show last month.

Cruise beamed at Holmes and laughed off the audience's encouragement to "kiss her," saying: "If I've been able to entertain you at all, then, I thank you for allowing me to do so."

Well, well, well... so he spoofed himself and for good measure threw in some humility at the end.

Nice job!
