New York (ANI): American actor Tom Cruise got his geography mixed
up when he greeted reporters in Portuguese speaking Rio de Janeiro,
by speaking to them in Spanish. Cruise was in the Brazilian city to
promote his movie Valkyrie, and he tried to get friendly with the
reporters by saying hola (hello) and gracias (thanks) to them,
reports the New York Post.
According to Glamurama.com, the actor further showed his
ignorance when he said he fell in love with Brazil after watching
movies about samba and tango, unaware that tango is an Argentine
dance. He and his wife Katie and baby Suri have been staying at the
Copacabana Palace, and he took a side trip to the private island of
plastic surgeon Dr. Ivo Pitanguy, who has his own landing strip and
a menagerie of exotic animals.
