Pairs Division: Cruise and Kurylenko at ‘Oblivion’ Premiere

Posted on May 10, 2013

Is it us or are the men putting the effort in more lately? Tell you what; let’s continue judging them and try to come to some sort of conclusion. Of course, “let’s judge someone” tends to be our answer to so many of life’s little mysteries.


Tom Cruise and Olga Kurylenko attend the premiere of ‘Oblivion’ in Japan. Olga wore a Christian Dior gown. Tom wore a custom Giorgio Armani suit.

SHE: Looks amazing in that dress. No surprise there; its an amazing dress. Love the hair and makeup, but we’re afraid pointage will have to be removed due to the clown lips. We don’t think that bright pink really goes with the dress at all and more importantly, we think it’s Not Her Shade. Sorry, doll. You almost had a perfect score. Score: 9/10.

HE: Gets ragged on an awful lot here at T Lo Ragging Services, LLC, but attention and respect must be paid, because when he really wants to, he can look like a goddamn million-watt movie star. And it’s so nice to see a man who dresses up to the level of his co-star. We don’t know why more male stars don’t do it, because it instantly makes the two of them look like a couple, which is generally good for the project, nine times out of ten. Anyway, he’s rocking the shit out of this suit, but we’re afraid he too just barely misses the perfect score because he keeps making the short-guy mistake of wearing his jacket and pants a bit too long. Score: 9/10.

Combined Score: 9/10. How boringly symmetrical. But well done anyway, movie stars.

    Beautiful clothing. But boy oh boy — she looks like she wants to get away from him.

    • MsOlympia

      I thought the same thing! That is some awfully stiff body language!

    • Yes! My first thought was “yikes, look at that hostage face.”

    • SewingSiren

      Dad It’s cool that you drove me to the prom and everything, but …you don’t have to walk me to the door… or a have the first dance… you can leave now really.. Please leave.. …Leave NOW damn it!

      • siriuslover

        Though she does look like she’s checking out his butt in one of the pictures.

    • Little_Olive

      Well, to be fair he is holding her like she’s bio-hazard.

  • geans

    That is maybe my favorite dress ever.

    • I want to touch it so bad. I think I have a crush.

  • Deedles

    With all due respect, gentlemen, he does NOT qualify as “sausage” in my book.

    • YoungSally

      Maybe one of those little Vienna ones…

      • MilaXX


      • Rand Ortega

        LOL! Young Sally, you tart tongued vixen you!

      • I’m trying SO hard not to laugh out loud at my desk right now. As it is, I still silent-laughed so hard I cried.

      • MissAmynae

        Sally just dropped the mic!

  • 3boysful

    I SO want that dress (and somewhere to wear it . . .) .

  • crash1212

    That second picture is adorable. They both look SO good. I love that dress so much I didn’t even notice the lipstick. I would so fail at being a TLo intern.

  • She looks terrified of him.

  • That Dior is to die for. Too bad she went cray on the lip color. Agreed that he looks like the movie star that he is. He bugs, but he knows what he is doing and you can’t hate that.

  • Synnamin

    Credit where credit is due: he looks wonderful. Too bad he is who he is…

    • Snailstsichr

      like x 100

    • No kidding. I flinch every time I see his face, no matter how good he looks these days.

    • random_poster

      I agree. He really put the effort in on the look.

  • HomeOfficeGirl

    Coulda, shoulda, woulda, used-ta be hot to me. Sigh… why you gotta be so crazy Tom?

  • SewingSiren

    It’s cute when dads and daughters dress to match.

  • Joeyanna

    She could be a great rep for Christian Dior, more so than JLaw (who I love).

    • Agree. J Law looks great in Dior, but she doesn’t embody it, the way Marion does. Olga, on the other hands, is a Russian clone of Christy Turlington, and effortlessly fashiony, too boot.

      • lonepear

        Agreed. (J.Law needs to be the face of Calvin Klein instead; that is a perfect match. Or has she been already?)

  • hughman

    When did he get so squinty? He’s turning into the old man from “Up”.

  • Actually, I LOVE her dress but I don’t like her hair or makeup.

  • carnush

    That second photo is hilarious. They both look great. Agree about the clown lips…she should have gone for a subtler pink.

  • alyce1213

    How coordinated they are. Are they sharing a stylist for the Oblivion tour?
    I’d go higher — 9.5 for each.

  • LOVE her dress. He looks like a serial killer in those shades.

    • Y’know, I sort of love the shades on him. I like the (not so) subtle throwback to his Maverick days (before he went batshit crazy).

      • makeityourself

        Yes, but the posing with the shades is rather pretentious or fey or something.

  • jesus he looks like a friggin model in that pic of him walking forward and waving. i’m convinced he doesn’t age. he must have a secret lab of scientists that he keeps chained to their lab bench formulating some sort of fountain of youth elixir for him.

  • In the first pic I thought he was wearing a jumpsuit under a jacket and now I want to see that. Those freaking sunglasses erase all the good work of the suit in a cloud of l’eau de douche.

  • Contralto

    I love a three-piece suit on a man. He looks good.

    • The stylists must have all gotten a memo on Monday that three piece suits are THE THING this week.

  • carpediva

    Best he’s looked since I was 15 and still crushing on him, not realizing the shame spiral that would cause me in later years.

  • I am not a fan of him, but Dang boys…… he looks great here! Her dress is amazing.

  • nannypoo

    Her dress is so fabulous. The lipstick is, as noted, totally the wrong color, and I’m not wild about her hair. He looks great. Too bad he’s not somebody else.

  • RebeccaKW

    That dress is gorgeous. I can almost overlook the lipstick, which only looks good on Barbie. He looks amazing. I’m definitely not one who thinks he is all that ‘hot’ anymore, but he cuts a fine figure in that beautiful suit.

  • MilaXX

    Tom must have went a bought the top dollar lifts because those shoes don’t look clunky. I am impressed. They both look good and deserving of such high scores.

  • Is it me or is he looking a little like Kurt Russell in the first and last pics?

    And I love her dress! She looks amazing in it!

  • I don’t like the feeling of matchiness between the two of them, but overall good looks. She does need better makeup though.

  • lobsterlen

    Its scaring me … Olga and Tom look so great together. Please Olga don’t even consider it.

  • flamingoNW

    Nicely done. Glad TCruise took a moment to take the douchy sunglasses off too. LOVE that dress. Don’t love her hair.

  • Sunraya

    The man is nuts, but credit where it is due – he looks like he did in Top Gun in some of these pictures. He has a real charisma, more than almost any actor today. Great smile and very magnetic. Too bad he is such a tool.

  • lobsterlen

    Has Olga made any fashion mistakes while promoting this movie? Every time I see her everything about her is nearly flawless and stunning.

  • janneyb

    I covet this dress. But sadly, I don’t have the life I keep mentally shopping for.

  • Rand Ortega

    Gawd, you can see those lips from space. Everything else is perfection. TC looks the best I’ve seen him in a long time. Props to his stylist, hope this gets him/her out of that storage bunker in FL. Allegedly.

  • barbarienne

    I actually like that jacket length on him, but I agree the pants could lose half an inch, maybe a whole inch.

    I like that their outfits go together, but don’t look matchy.

  • formerlyAnon

    I am probably showing bias. But she MUST outscore him, I like her look so much better than his, so he’s downgraded to 8.5/10.

    Also: Tom Cruise doesn’t count for Sausage Friday. Not for me, anyway.

  • mmc2315

    Count me in, I love the dress too! How it manages to look so lovely and not look like an awning or lawn chair, I don’t know.

  • j_anson

    I finally figured out what I dislike about vests. Assuming they’re the same color as the pants, it tends to look like the guy is wearing a suit jacket over an extremely formal jumpsuit, which is just… weird. Especially in the first picture.

    Otherwise they look awesome though. I want that dress.

  • Her dress? AH-MAZING. She looks gorgeous, head to toe (except for the cotton-candy lip).

    And, well done, Tom. I guess the guystars have gotten the memo that they’re not doing anyone any favors by simply phoning it in. I’m not in love with the color, and the whole suit seems a little boxy on him, but he gets major kudos for actually making an effort.

  • Qitkat

    I’ve never seen TC look better. If there weren’t so much rational/irrational hate for him, see, I covered everybody there 😉
    this would be damn close to a Werq.

    She’s pretty and I like how they look good togethr.

  • MissAmynae

    Impeccable. He’s so much better when he channels his character from The Firm, and goes with these tailored, beautiful suits. Mitch McDeere forevah!

    I have no words for her. Just perfection. I can deal with the lips.

  • J. Preposterice

    is it me, or have there been more guys going around in 3-pieces lately?

    not that i’m complaining, mind you.

  • PrunellaV

    Wow, he looks like a model from an 80s catalog.


  • Tracy_Flick

    What an odd series of photos – she looks photoshopped in. They both look fab, though.

  • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

    She is stunning and once again he has reminded me why he’s been a heartthrob for nearly thirty years. Wow, talk about a couple of perfect specimens of the human race.

  • “We don’t know why more male stars don’t do it, because it instantly makes the two of them look like a couple, which is generally good for the project, nine times out of ten.” Haha suddenly I’m thinking of Singing in the Rain.

  • GladtoexitNEPA

    Apologies if this is a double. They both look great. But I’m reading Lawrence Wright’s book about Scientology, and frankly, I will never look at TC the same way ever again. Waste of a good outfit Tom.

  • Dhammadina

    She –so beautiful and so insipid in that movie (to be fair what a stupid part). In Oblivion she cowers instead of twirling as she does in the other new film she’s in, Malick’s To the Wonder. What a waste.

  • Steph Wright

    If you scroll up and down real fast, he almost looks like an older Josh Bowman. Which is a HUGE compliment.

  • Where is the waist of his pants hitting him?! Those things look like they’re above his navel.

    Also, I think it’s HIGH-LARIOUS that they are somehow suddenly the same height; it is to LOL.

  • Weird, Tom looks very jaw-ular in this suit. I think he is gorgeous, but his face looks very ‘off’ to me in these pics.Maybe that’s why he leans away from the more formal attire?

  • quiltrx

    LOVE LOVE LOVE her dress!!! Dior gets an ‘of course’ from me in the most positive way…I almost always love their stuff.
    And TC has never exactly lit my fire, but he looks very handsome here. Not Minority-Report-level handsome, but really good.

  • MandyM

    I agree that he looks extra nice but he’s still a feminine product one uses on a summer’s eve. What’s the deal with his rise in his pants though? Not that I’m looking at his crotch. I swear I’m not. Really. I was just scrolling and noticed how weird it looks. Do all men’s pants look like that? *going to check*

    She looks fantabulous except for the lips. But it could have just been to keep Tom from trying to kiss her inwhichcase, she is forgiven.

  • kikisayshi

    No matter how weird he gets, he still looks good in a suit. Love her dress also.

  • ankali

    Lipstick be damned, I am SO impressed with how versatile she is. Wasn’t she rocking Balmain a week or two ago? And now looking like a nearly perfect Dior princess? She’s on my one-to-watch list.

  • Kikishua

    I love her expression in the second pic “Tom Cruise is touching me. Please save me”


    On first glance I thought this was Katie…

  • largishbearishAtlish

    did they forget his orange crate? he looks shorter than normal…bordering on tiny…

  • jetpackdino

    He looks great– they both do– but the Tom I am *dying* to see ain’t this Tom. Les Grossman! Come rock my world baby.

  • guest2visits

    They both look wonderful; and the movie was pretty entertaining – an excellent sci-fi for a change.

    • Nothing original in the movie, but very emotional nonetheless. Well-directed and acted. Plus, Game of Thrones hotness!

  • librarygrrl64

    That is the best he has looked in a while. Great choice of texture, pattern, and color.

  • Do they make pants short enough for Tom Cruise? JK, they both look super-hot!

  • Cruise should follow the teachings of Mr. Browne and cut his jacket mid-pocket length. Ms. Kurylenko looks gorgeous as always.
