Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa! Seriously?!
Perhaps Bronyism can turn him from Scientology.
I think she was making a joke. (i.e all those Tom Cruise gay rumors). Tara is really jokey on her Twitter.
i knew it!!!
Tom Cruise is a huge jerk. He doesn't deserve to be one, sorry.
Unless this is the same "reliable source" that said Derpy was going away.
"... But, but I'm not in the closet..."
OH GOD WHY???????NO!!! NO!!!NOT THAT SCIENCTOLIGIST!!!! I know it goes against the creedo and all but no.
Someone set this to MLP music. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GNrB6qpmNwg
#DoNotWant also - since we know all in which "thing" he is.
@Flutterfan That would make sense. 'Cause this is just......I can't even find the right word to describe this.
OH HECK YEAH. This is great news! Here's hoping for a pony reference in the next Mission Impossible! :D
While i have no issue with more joining the herd a part of me feels like this be a joke. Ah well for all his odd quirks i can't really dislike the man like so many seem to. Although he is getting to old for those mission impossible movies...
I'd take most things Tara Strong posts on her twitter with a grain of salt. She posts a lot of really outrageous stuff.
This is likely to be a joke from Tara, which she does a lot. Then again, I can't prove one way or another that Tom Cruise is or is not a Brony.
Tara Strong voices Twilight Sparkle.So whatever she says, it's true. :D
If it leads to Tropic Thunder and A Few Good Men jokes I welcome it. Love those movies.
Probably a joke, but anyway; all are welcome :D
We will do no such thing.
HAhahaha! Lol'd so hard at it. Cool story, bro.
No love and tolerance from me for Scientology. Sorry.
I don't really like Tome Cruise, but I welcome anyone to our fanbase. If it's true then I hope he is treated as well as anyone else in this fandom.
Oh great... this is going to make the rest of us look just as crazy as he is. Can we oust him?
If Tom is a brony, that is wonderful. But given the litany of things he has vocally supported in the past, I find it hard to believe that he would be closeted about bronydom. Nonetheless, I hope its true.
I think she made a joke there. I haven't seen a single serious tweet of her since like ever^^
If it's on Tara Strong's twitter, it isn't true.
lol so now we are gonna start choosing who we want to be a brony now?
Yep that's true, and I can confirm it, because I am Tom Cruise.
Tom Cruise has a daughter. I wouldn't be surprised if that is the reason. Therefor, I accept this is truth.
Tom Cruise has quite a spacious closet, it seems...
That cool if he likes the show. Its a good show. Why shouldn't he like the show? IT FREAKING AMAZING! Not that I need to tell any one you that.
... So that's what Tara Strong looks like. Amazing how a voice can change your perception on things.No, I don't have a comment on the actual message presented.
Season 4 finale: Twilight and the girls use the elements of Harmony to destroy Xenu.
@ombutescentdinDerp "any one OF you"
Well yes, hes a bit crazy, but nopony is perfect.
@statoose So THAT'S what Tom Cruise is in the closet about! And here I thought it was because of Scientology! *hee hee South Park*
If you had Tom Cruise's troubles you might be Tom Cruise crazy, too.
Tell Tara to STFU n stop dissin' ma hero. lol-jks-im-nice-reallyBut seriously, like, I wouldn't take this seriously.
Hmm... presuming such things in public is, one might say, A RISKY BUSINESS?
Before you continue complaining about Tom Cruise being a scientologist, let me say this: Religiotology (Cookie for the person who gets this reference) is a better cult than ScientologyOther than that, Welcome to the herd Cruise!
Whoa. Well this is...yeah. He's sort of nuts, but having famous people on board is usually a good thing, right? I mean, he is REALLY nuts, but, eh.
I'm pretty sure she meant that as a joke, but who knows...
HOGODNOpleaase pleaaase noooooit makes me feel dirty just to be associated with garbage like him
Dat South Park reference.
IMO it sounds like a potential meme. I have information from an extremely reliable source that Tom Cruise is a cruise ship.
He should just stay in the closet... leave the ponies out of it
Him liking the show affects you all how? Seriously people also as some have said people shouldn't be taking this so seriously.
@Tears of a Valedictorian Lol, apparently.
This looks like Tara Strong making a cheap joke at the expense of both Tom Cruise and bronies (both of whom most people assume to be gay). Kind of disappointing, actually.Tom Cruise is actually pretty cool though, and Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol was seriously the best action movie in YEARS.
Well guys it was fun while it lasted :P
Matt Lauer: But don't you think My Little Pony is meant for children and not for adults?Tom Cruise: Matt, Matt, Matt, you're being glib.
Mission Impossible 5: Love and Tolerence
" Hmm... presuming such things in public is, one might say, A RISKY BUSINESS?"*grooooooan*
Eh, wouldn't surprise me in the least... I mean, the guy does have a little girl who's right in the target demographic for the show, doesn't he? There are a lot of parents who are fans of the show.As for the man himself, he seems a bit out there and has voiced beliefs I disagree with, but that's no crime. I hope he and his family enjoy ponies as much as I do with mine.
Can't tell if trolling or if everyone really hates Scientology. Of which I am one, because I don't take faith in works of fiction. Sorry if I offend anyone with this, just stating reason for love and toleration.
I can see this being true, but it probably isn't.
Good or bad idk
Mission Derptastical: Muffin Protocol.
This is hilarious.
Welcome to the My little Pony Community, Newcomer!!!! I'm so proud that you love My little Pony!!!!! ^_^
I have information from a reliable source that Tara is joking.Also that Richard Gere is a closet Hamtaro fan...
Now this I was not expecting
...the two most well known people who are supposedly bronies are Tom Cruise and Robert Pattison....This really isn't helping endear us to the general public.
We are insidious. We creep inside your mind and tell you what we're about. You may hate us, you may want us gone all together. But we spark something inside you. Something that has driven your race backwards and forwards. Curiosity. Curiosity will drive you to watch an episode. It then begins, you become fascinated by it. What is it? The cuteness? The story? The darkness the episodes are covered with? It doesn't matter, you're attached. In the end, it doesn't matter if you're a regular person, a super star, a criminal, or nobody. You become a brony, we all became Bronies. Just like you.
@Harwick Well said, good sir.
Eeeh.... what? Okay, THAT was unexpected. I must admit it is very hard to believe, but... the words comes from Tara Strong, so...?
Tara, you better be trolling us.
"I have in my hand 57 cases of individuals who would appear to be either card carrying members or certainly loyal to the Brony Party..."
This is how many fucks I give... None.
Xenu=Discord.Everything makes more sense.
Tara Strong's nice and all, and I usually trust what she says just like the rest of the people working on the show, but for this, I must make an exception. I'll believe it when I see it myself.Still, it would be pretty cool.
WOAH SAY WHAT?!
Now that's interesting, though the term 'closeted' and 'Tom Cruise' together do bring painful memories of that one South Park episode that caused so much grief. I do hope it wasn't a reference.As for the whole Scientology thing, whatever, who cares?
If it is true, Welcome Tom and enjoy your staying. But he may just be watching it with his kids. He have kids, right? Don't remember. Anyways, stop hating, I don't see what's wrong with him, except from that religious thingy.
I think she's joking, to be honest. Her choice of words doesn't exactly make me believe she's 100% serious. But that's just me.
All the bronies in that actor's closet are CRAZY!!!--closet door crashes open--WATCH OUT! HERE COMES TOM!!!
@ramoberley I would like to believe you, but I don't know how. Can you provide any proof? Unless, I'm going with troll.
As for scientology...I fart in your general direction!
If this is true...Tom will have re-earned all the lost swag he lost in his terrible movies.
@richfiles Well played, sir/madam. XD Very clever, hahah!
He's a closeted a lot of things.
Dear Celestia NOOOO!!! If he is I WILL BEAT THE LIVING CRAP OUT OF HIM!!!
Fandom, I find your general lack of tolerance disturbing. ಠ_ಠ
I propose a hostile takeover of the Scientologists by the Bronies. L. Ron Hubbard will be replaced by Lauren Faust, etc.
Tolerance is overrated.
I welcome everyone to the herd. No matter who. We are all humans after all. And maybe it can seriousley get him out of Scientology.But unless we get more proof from more sources, I'm going with troll.
Well, I guess all those rumors about him being gay really ARE all unfounded.
How long before there's a fan-animation of a Cruise-like pony jumping on a couch?
It's a joke, retards. It's playing off the idea that Tom Cruise is a closet homosexual.
I don't care if this is a gag or not. The show is amazing and the Fandom is generally always awesome. More people is always good because it shows how wide an audience can appreciate this show.
If Tara is just spreading rumors around for the lols, she better be careful! 'Cause we bronies take our pony bsns srsly. XD But, if Tom is indeed a brony then that is awesome news! I welcome him to the herd with open arms! I don't care who joins us really, the more the better!
Tom Cruise is a closeted /something/, regardless.
Tom Cruise is Tom Cruise crazy.
@Sedrick J. WilhelmShe wouldn't do that... or would she?
Not sure if I want that scientology guy in our herd ... but then again, love and tolerate.
@pmcollectorboy You win. Here, take my internets.
@Tom HAHAHAHA. Well done, that made me laugh.
Come on, now. Why all the Tom Cruise hate? Sure, he's a nut, but that doesn't have any impact on his ability to act! And there has never, and I mean NEVER, been any actor who's been better at playing Tom Cruise than Tom Cruise.
@Sedrick J. Wilhelm Where is your PROOF?
@crystalmountain High-five and brohoof!
I have a hundred bucks today for anyone who ponifies every Tom Cruise movie. Make it happen.
First thing that came to my mind.http://www.southparkstudios.com/clips/155090/tom-cruise-wont-come-out-of-the-closetSecond thing that came to my mind.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IrrTCnnyqj0&feature=related
@Joey WontonBut why would you want to ship Tom Cruise?
Oh hell no, not Cruise! somebody call Xenu down from the mothership to take him away or something, silly Scientologist.
Even more Tom hate. I can't understand why all the hate either! He is a fairly good actor. It seems it's the Scientology. What happened to love and tolerate? I've been coming to this site now for quite some time and I also believe in Scientology. Are you going to rage me away too? I really hope not, I like it here. Argue if you want, I'll be here.
Check her Twitter again, she admitted she was teasing, it's a joke.
Earwig, good call. Tara Strong is taking liberties with our overreactive fandom.
@EarwigThanks for the info!
CALLED IT!just sayin :D
And Tom Cruise is relevant why?
Sheesh people in this fandom are gullible. She uses "closeted" and "Tom Cruise" and you don't get the joke? The same joke (albeit executed differently) that Tabitha played during the Derpy Drama, no less.
Sorry, but...He's a good actor and a good looking man, but...NO SCIENTOLOGY for me please! Thank you...(I'm glad Earwig told us the truth!)
Tom Cruise is also a Scientologist. Which certifies him to be as weird as the rest of us!
Dear Princess Celestia, today I learned that gullible Bronies will believe anything I say. Your faithful student, Twilight Sparkle.
lol, tom cruise and closet in the same sentence. Classic.
Geez, bronies, just because he's Scientologist doesn't mean that we now all have to be as well. Which is how alot of you are acting. Just because we do not agree with all of one's beliefs does not mean we must shut him out of our wondeful community. Love and Tolerance, remember? I, for one, accept our new Ethan Hunt overlord.
@XX55XX I resent that! >:/
Seems like you may jumped the gun a bit, Seth! ;P
Just...nobody tell him about the community, and we should be fine.Cripes, there he is!*turns off lights, hides behind couch*
@Tara Strong Oh you!
Why all the Tom Cruise hate? Is it the Scientology? Sure, Scientology is imho crazy, but that's no reason to hate someone. Where did love and TOLERANCE go?Besides, every actor is at least a little bit mad.
If he is a brony, I will believe it when he says it.Then again, she could be poking fun at him. However, having Tom Cruise amongst us...will that be good or bad?
/confusedface Why does Tom cruise need to be a closet anything?
That either says something good about him or bad about us
Anyone else remember the South Park episode about hiding in the closet? :P
Tara Strong is a funny lady.
@Smashmatt202"Now I love the ponies, I love the ponies too <3"
Well Twilight does troll occasionally in show. I thing Trollestia is rubbing off on her!
Jason @Kadreal1 · Open@tarastrong See, you make such random twitter comments, I'm not sure if true or just teasing... tara strong @tarastrong Close@Kadreal1 teasing...but he could be!! Hide conversation9:05 PM - 16 Feb 12 via Tweetbot for iOS · Details
Not sure if trolling, or... :?
Tom come out of the closet.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5tuEaG-buvo&feature=relatedyou can't catch me bronies.and how close is Tara to Cameron Diaz?
lol, she made another post saying she made it up.Well trolled Tara, well trolled :P
"Tom won't come out of the closet, SO I PULL OUT MY GUN!!!"But really, I love how the makers are interacting with the bronies more. I feel happy knowing they each have thousands of genuinely talented people willing to do their bidding at their disposal, and I can be one of them.
I'm confusedWhy should I care if an actor enjoys something I enjoy?I don't get this whole 'celebrity' thingAlso, being a scientologist is about funding people who ruin people's lives with harassment, blackmail, lawsuits, and medical neglect... among other things. I have no love or tolerance for them, and neither should you.
Tara is quite the Troll isn't she? ;)
brohoof tom cruise... welcom to the herd :D
@JaberwockyThe entire explanation is 3 words long.for the lulz
Tara Strong is best troll.
Tom Cruise needs to do a MISSION IMPOSSIBLE episode with Scootaloo in season 3! GET ON THAT CRUISE! CONTACT HASBRO AND DHX!
the only question: is Tara trolling us or him?
Either she's trolling or that's awesome!
I thought Tom Cruise was a fudge packer.
Lol, my Mom is a huge fan of Tom Cruise xD She always forces me to go see all his movies with her >.> And now this new makes him 20% cooler. :D
These comments are absolutely disheartening. Trolling or not, this reaction is just terrible. Saying he's not GOOD ENOUGH to join the herd because he's a scientologist? Seriously, I think of some of the creepy ass people in this fanbase, and cannot for the life of me understand how, say, people who post disgusting pony porn are okayed, but god forbid a scientologist join the herd!
I think Tara is just trolling us but if so than awesome thanks for the info.
bronyism x scientology otp
Faaaaaahhk... Confirmed for trolling: https://twitter.com/#!/tarastrong Look at the most recent tweet. Damnit, Tara, I suppose that'll teach the bronies to trust you and you "reliable sources" in the future, eh?
Today I learned I can't detect trolling on twitter =P
@statoose of course she's trolling :P I still stand that he needs to do a MI episode staring him and Scootaloo in some crazy spy mission xDSOMEONE GIVE ME TOM CRUISES NUMBER AND I WILL MAKE THAT HAPPEN! XD
LOL the idea of "Maverick" liking Rainbow Dash is funny.
ALL PEOPLES DESERVE TO BE A BRONY! And who we are, to decide who's good enought to be a brony, and who's not?
Pony porn doesn't pull people out of hospitals to die in a locked room while their bank account is pillagedJust sayin'
Wow, This is sad. Such malice can come from some of the "Most tolerating beings on the internet"? What is wrong with you all, Have you lost yourselves? What is it to be a Brony? Is it to not accept those who share a common interest? Those who love a show we all have seen and accepted as the show that us as individuals have broken the stereotypes that has been placed on us.And you have the audacity to believe that you are better then one, who might (or might not) enjoy that very show? What makes you better? He's still a human being. Such harsh words that come from those who, by very nature have been hazed and excluded for being different? You are all no better then him.You are doing the very thing that you wish others not to do to you. And it makes me sad to admit I am a huge Brony. And if it be a troll then a truck should strike me dead, seeing as I have seen the true faces of said "Bronys"Tl:dr I am disappointed.
And here you go, confirmation from her that it was just a joke: https://twitter.com/#!/tarastrong/status/170271786078978048
He can enjoy the show as much as the next person and call himself a brony. I could honestly care less about who in Hollywood is homosexual. But I have absolutely no respect for Scientology, and not all of it is because I consider the beliefs to be absolutely nutty. Being nutty is one thing. Being frauds is another. I saw one of their "auditing" sessions being set up in a mall and couldn't help but marvel at how many people would pay good money just to be lied to by phony science.And whoever used the word "fudge packer". Really?Anyway. On to ponies.
@ShakeNDakeWhile I don't share your beliefs, as long as you respect mine and don't use yours to interfere with my life, or as an excuse to do unspeakably horrific acts, then I have no problem with you believing whatever you like. I have no problems with Scientologists. I DO have a few problems with the way the CoS sometimes acts, though. But I could say that about any organized religion. Individual members are fine, in my book. I'll judge them on an individual basis, as I get to know them, like I do with everyone else.
Great, the more the merrier I always say! Welcome to the herd Mr. Cruise!
Oh no!Tara Strong's gonna get sued for sure!
*Sees "Tom Cruise"... starts a page search for "Scientology"... is not surprised...*The irrational versus the unreasonable. Duel 9001, LET'S ROCK!Welcome to the herd, in any case, Cruise.
i think if tara strong is as much of a egg head as her character.... we might jave a problem
Love and tolerance for all is the best policy. =)
But... he's a $cientologist.
Because what we need is a closer connection to the concept of a crazy cult.
Show you the ponies. Show you the ponies. Show me the ponies. Show. me. the. Ponies. SHOW ME THE PONIES! SHOWMETHEPONIES!!! SHOW! ME! THE PONIIIIIES!!!!
"You can be my wingmare anytime, Dashie.""Did you order the code Rainbow? DID YOU ORDER THE CODE RAINBOW?"
Maybe Chuck Norris is a Bronie too? :)
Even thought this turned out to be a troll, I giggled :D
@Tara Strong>implying tom cruise still hides his insecurities in such primitive constructs as "closets".
