Ever since I heard about the memorial service over the Sony Lot for Heath Ledger, and saw the list of attendees, I have struggled with the question of whether Tom Cruise went because he wanted some good publicity, or if he was there to support Katie Holmes. Katie as you know starred with Michelle Williams on Dawson's Creek, but as far as I know neither Katie nor Tom had ever met Heath Ledger. The cynic in me wants to believe that Tom would never go to any other funeral of his wife's former castmate's former boyfriend. That side of me thinks he went because there was sure to be some positive publicity. In fact, only Kneepads Magazine was actually informed of the service in advance which of course would only highlight the positives. According to WireImage, Tom Cruise has never been photographed with Heath, and there is no indication they ever met, but then a part of me says, hey, maybe he really does care about Katie and Michelle Williams was important to her at one point, although again, Katie and Michelle had not been photographed together in almost five years, and then only in a cast situation.
I know, I know, the same could be said about Ellen who was also there, but I just don't get the, OMG, I need some good publicity vibe right now from her. I think she went out of a sense of she wanted to pay her respects. Perhaps that is the reason Tom went also, but now because of his crazy ass behavior, I will second guess everything he does whether it be good or bad to see if he has any ulterior motives.
