Tom Cruise snaps up ads on Google AdWords

Typing in "Tom Cruise" in a Google search brings up links to the Scientologist's official, soon-to-be-launched Web site.

Tom Cruise and his publicity crew are apparently buying up ads on Google AdWords. Hollywood Newsroom first noticed the fact that when you type in "Tom Cruise" in a Google search, paid sponsored ads for the Scientologist's official, soon-to-be-launched Web site appear. "Stay Tuned For Official Site Launch" and "Get the real scoop from Tom Cruise," the ads proclaim.

The timing of the Google Adwords move appears to coincide with Cruise's recent appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show, where he made an earnest attempt to convince Oprah and the public that he's not the couch-jumping eccentric he made himself out to be the last time he was on the show.

Maybe taking publicity into his own hands will help the general public realize he's just sadly misunderstood.
