Things just don’t seem to be working out for Tom Cruise, these days. He can’t even get a whole restaurant to himself and dine in peace! That’s apparently the latest woe of the newly-divorced actor who recently flew to Croatia from London, where he was based while filming the new movie "All You Need Is Kill".
On what looks to be Cruise’s “Croatia: Love Recovery Tour 2”(he’s said to have traveled there after the Penelope Cruz split), The Sun reports that he stopped by the Forza Mare Hotel in Dobrota, near Montenegro's coastline. There was a request to the management—could they clear their in-house restaurant so he could eat without a crowd?

The TomKat Divorce might be over and done with but the rumors behind Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes' bizarro marriage--especially involving the religion that shall not be named--will probably live on forever. And given that the duo spent most of their time aboard private jets and private yachts and checking in and out of hotels, we've been waiting for the hotel gossip to come. And National Enquirer does not disappoint.
The tabloid reports that just two weeks before Katie filed for divorce, the duo checked into the "best hotel in all of Iceland", The Hilton Nordica and was holed up in the $1,000-a night Presidential Suite while Tom was filming his latest movie. But oddly enough, Tom had his bodyguards put up black duct tape over the security cameras that are placed in the corridor outside the suite.

It must be very good indeed to be Tom Cruise (your feelings about Scientology aside.) That's because while in India promoting his latest "Mission Impossible" movie, Tom stayed at the country's newest and most expensive hotel, The Leela Palace New Delhi in the city's diplomatic enclave of Chanakyapuri. And of course, he wasn't sleeping in a standard room.
No, Cruise rested his head in the hotel's Maharaja Suite which is billed as a "palace within a palace" and has six rooms, 24-hour butler services, spa rooms, a Jacuzzi, walk-in wardrobe and a private gym. The suite is also equipped with bullet proof glass and a private elevator, making it a Mission Impossible indeed to break into this hotel suite. Oh and the suite also comes with the use of a Rolls Royce Phantom. Some guys have all the luck.
Some of the first people to party at Plunge were Katy Perry and Russell Brand. Now TomKat has blessed the Gansevoort Park Avenue's rooftop pool deck and lounge with their starry presence.
The pair hit up the premiere party for The Romantics (which stars Holmes) on Tuesday night, and apparently weren't too impressed with the VIP-ness of the cabana they were cozied up in.
According to Page Six, a 'well dressed intruder'--presumably a guest of the party but not quite VIP enough--got past security and approached The TomKat.
Poor Katie Holmes. She's always seemed so nice and innocent and friendly but then she married Tom Cruise and now everyone just kinda whispers and gossips about her. Things must be rough, what with the recent speculation about her Scientology-supporting hubby putting her on a crazy-strict diet, her tired-looking face (she's a new mom!) and all that.
So what do you do when you're Katie Holmes and the going gets tough and people are commenting on your appearance and your lifestyle? Well, you fly across the globe and lock yourself in a Ritz-Carlton Tokyo room and you don't come out until you're feeling and looking like a beautiful new butterfly.
As usual, while the rest of the country is buzzing about the Super Bowl, drinking cheap-o beer and munching on processed snacks while Hollywood-ers throw each other lavish parties and spend the whole night in 'da club, Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes and Suri are existing in their own little universe.
And that own little universe just happened to be, in this case, located in Rio. The fam packed up Suri (and whatever else they pack on trips; we cannot even imagine) and headed down to the Copacabana Palace Hotel, which is apparently the only place anyone ever goes in Rio. According to Gossip Girls, the clan jetted to Brazil together so Tom could attend a press conference and the premiere of his new movie Valkyrie.
For as lavish as this hotel is (rates start around $390), it seems to be pretty kid friendly recall that this luxe hotspot is where we last spotted Jude Law, who was also chillin' there with his kiddies.
Also notable: Tom Cruise is wearing what, at first glance, appear to be jean shorts, but upon further inspection they seem to be denim-hued board shorts of some sort.

Well, here's something you don't see every day: Babara Walters chillin' at a super-trendy Manhattan hotel with Tom Cruise. Huh.
Our guilty pleasure (and reliable hotel scene-stalker) Page Six had this little gem of a sighting to share with us this morning:
Tom Cruise and Barbara Walters leaving the Gramercy Park Hotel after she interviewed him for her "Most Fascinating People of the Year" special for Oscar night.
So many questions here: What are you doing at the GPH, Babwa? Is that really your scene? Also: what is he doing on your fascinating people list? What did he do this year? Are we sure that Tom made the list, not Suri? Suri is fascinating. Finally: who felt that this interview would be most appropriately conducted in Schrager's gothic sex castle?
Guess who dined at Cut last night at the Four Seasons Beverly Wilshire? Yup. Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes. This time they brought along Oscar winner Forest Whitaker and his wife.
When TomKat is in Los Angeles, they probably eat at Cut once a week. We can't blame them as we've experienced Cut personally and it is pretty darn good.
We can only wonder what TomKat talks about with their dining partners. We'd like to think it's about making movies, raising children, and comparing private jets but we have a sneaking suspicion that the dreaded S word comes up too.
Is this how TomKat does it? Wows a couple with a fantastic meal by Wolfgang Puck and then surprises them with an E-meter reading?

In this edition of Hotel Habits of the Rich and Famous...
Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, quite the European couple these days, went back to the scene of their nuptials, Italy, this past weekend to belatedly celebrate their one-year anniversary which was Nov. 18th.
We're told that Tom, Katie and Baby Suri hit up the Rosa Alpina Hotel & Spa in the Dolomites in the Italian Alps for a quick lunch. Chef Norbert Niederkofler from the hotel's St. Hubertus restaurant served a special five-course lunch al fresco for the Cruises who were joined by the spa director and namesake, Daniela Steiner, before they did some snowmobiling.
Alas, the famous family did not spend the night. They had a helicopter chopper them back to Milan where they did what they do best, some shopping.
