Like most sane(ish) humans, I've been looking at the Tom Cruise/Katie Holmes Unholy Coupling with a certain amount of skepticism. But now I read what her ex-boyfriend is like and suddenly bearding a wealthy, albeit nutty religious freak, megastar doesn't sound like such a wacky idea.
Chris Klein, Ms. Holmes' most recent ex comes off like a major jackass in this month's Elle. Here he is describing the last time (well, until this article hits the stand) he was called an asshole:
As he recalls, "The time it really hurt was when a stranger said it. I was just trying to tell this chick to get lost. I try to treat all women with respect whether they're pretty or ugly. I want to be nice and be like, 'Wow, thanks for the attention. But get out of my face.'"
He also drops that he only dates women who rate between an eight and a ten on the hotness scale and has no problem telling an eight if she's moving into seven territory by gaining a few pounds:
"When a woman isn't feeling good about herself and you combine that with her period, eventually she'll ask you if you like her body," he pontificates. "You have to say no."
But what should she say when you ask her if she likes your rapidly receding hairline?
