Tom Cruise continued his international "Valkyrie" junket in Brazil this week. He and wife Katie Holmes left Suri behind for the Rio premiere Tuesday night. Holmes wore a vintage Christian Lacroix dress.
The AP reported that Cruise won over the Brazilian press:
RIO DE JANEIRO - Tom Cruise may sometimes confuse his countries, but he's winning fans among Brazil's press corps.
A news conference to promote his movie "Valkyrie" turned into something of a fan club meeting when a journalist said he promised his niece he would get a photo with Cruise. The actor immediately obliged.
That prompted another journalist to squeeze under a barrier for a photo. Guards stopped other reporters from doing the same.
Cruise says he's enjoying his five-day Brazil trip, but sometimes stumbled over differences between Latin American nations
He thanked one questioner with the Spanish "gracias" -- though Brazilians speak Portuguese. And he said he enjoys the tango -- the traditional dance of neighboring Argentina.
