Tom Cruise “Kissing” Olga Kurylenko During Oblivion Sparks Fake Controversy


By Daniel Gates


A number of outlets like The Mirror are treating the latest screen kiss between Tom Cruise and Olga Kurylenko as though it’s somehow salacious in the wake of the actor’s split with Katie Holmes.

A grainy image of Cruise and Kurylenko embracing on the California set of their sci-fi film Oblivion is making the rounds, and the sight of Cruise locking lips with someone who isn’t Holmes is making waves — even though it’s his job.

They’re actors. This is what they do for a living.

Of course, as soon as news of his divorce broke, tabloids began floating false rumors about Cruise’s (fictional) intimacy with Kurylenko being a reason behind Holmes deciding to end their marriage.

It was nonsense, as is the continued bait-and-switch, sensationalized treatment of Cruise and Kurylenko’s filmed “kissing” as having any meaning beyond Oblivion itself.
