I agree.

For some reason everyone sucks up to Tom Cruise. Drives me insane. What has he done that is so great (in the grand scheme of things, not movies)?

They are all pretty pathetic, IMO.

I think Gibson has a better chance than Cruise. With all the opportunity given to Cruise, he nearly always looks like an idiot. A crazy idiot.

No doubt. I found Limbaugh an interesting addition to the choices. I don't think he really cares about his image, does he?

I voted for Mel Gibson; at least he has the ability to put out some decently entertaining movies. BTW, you have Rush's picture up but he's not a choice in the poll.

Cruise. Spears is without talent, and the other individuals are stained with some form of bigotry. Cruise is simply regarded as being weird, but that is probably easier to overcome.

I voted for Britney. She has the shallowest career and just has to overcome her recent wanton behavior. If nothing else, she can make a big bucks in Vegas doing oldies.

I thought about Cruise too since (like RB said), he's just been weird.

The rest are permanently and indelibly stained by their vitriol and bigotry.

Britney, though it won't be so much an image salvage as a foray into porn.

Step one, show the world your womanly flower. Step two, release grainy homemade porn tape. Step three, make first theatrical release porn film since the 1970s.

Cruise 'is Christ' of Scientology

By EMILY SMITH
US Editor
January 23, 2007

TOM Cruise is the new “Christ” of Scientology, according to leaders of the cult-like religion.


The Mission: Impossible star has been told he has been “chosen” to spread the word of his faith throughout the world.

And leader David Miscavige believes that in future, Cruise, 44, will be worshipped like Jesus for his work to raise awareness of the religion.

A source close to the actor, who has risen to one of the church’s top levels, said: “Tom has been told he is Scientology’s Christ-like figure.

“Like Christ, he’s been criticised for his views. But future generations will realise he was right.”

Cruise joined the Church of Scientology in the ’80s. Leader L Ron Hubbard claimed humans bear traces of an ancient alien civilisation.

I'm going to say Tim Hardaway. Since he's the least relevant nationally his rant will be forgotten the quickest. And since he didn't have any real image before it shouldn't be too hard to get back to that.

Spears dropping K-Fed like 4th period French was probably the best move to right her ship.

Regardless, her music career is over, if it ever truly began.

I'm just hoping she can actually turn into a competant mother, although I'm not holding my breath.

Have to agree with Limbaugh being out of place on this list. Limbaugh is a professional agitator, his entire schtick is to push the envelope, and frankly his hardcore constituency probably at least tacticly agrees with most of his controversial statements. Unlike the others, he will face no real censure from making arguably bigoted statements.

Yeah, I don't think she is - or was - relevant musically. but that doesn't mean she's going to be out of the public spotlight anytime in the near future. She'll be like Paris Hilton with kids.

Is it a given that they're insane because they married the weird Tom?

Katie seems a sweet gal, and good actress (Pieces of April comes to mind).

Nicole is talented and successful, though does seem to migrate toward men w/, let's say, problems, as per her current hubby.

I'm going to say Spears -- if she releases a "good" (aka "popular") album in the near future that gets a lot of radio airplay, pretty much all her sins will be forgiven.

Spears is a bad news buffet.

The public is fascinated with anything she does. She could paint three stripes on a turd and call it the official turd of Brittney Spears and sell millions of them.

She'll get back in shape. She never had that much musical talent, but she could dance.

That's a pop star.

I went with Tom his next flick is directed by Robert Redford. It is about soldiers in Afghanistan. It has Meryl Streep and Redford himself co starring along with up and up newcomers Derek Luke and Michael Pena. Tom Cruise's agent usually picks the right movies for him and this seems to fit the category.

Mel made Apocalypto which came and went like a fart in the wind. He's gonna have to actually be "in" a movie for him to redeem himself.

Rush is a fat man with a mic. Pass Why does America constantly give the dumbest human beings microphones?

Kramer probably actually helped his career in a way because nobody cared about him before he got out of line. Nobody even knew the dudes real name. Most of them still don't Pass

Rocker.. Maybe a spot on VHI's Reality Show Perfect Candidate but it wont help his goat like status

Tim Hardaway...the crossover dribble back to B- Level All Star NBA retiree when everyone forgets his comments

Spears....ugh I've never seen someone go from pretty cute to pretty skanky in such an unclassy way. First she marries Vanilla Ice Jr, pops out a few, and then is guzzling a few PBR's with Paris Hilton. She has a chance, but chances are she'll never regain what she had.

Gibson. I have always liked Mel. What he did was wrong, but IMHO I think some good may actually come out of it. As human beings it sometimes takes "missteps" like these in our lives to really open our eyes and effect change.

Maybe she is going to audition for the Vulcan role in the new Star Trek movie?

She'd get nominated for Best Actress then, having to to demonstrate the intelligence of a Vulcan. Maybe mis-cast? :mooner:

Step 4: spend less than 24 hours in rehab

Does this mean there's they're going to build a 50 ft. Tom Cruise along an interstate in the San Fernado Valley?

True dat. The girl really does have some talent (dance-wise) as opposed to a lot of her, uh, peers.

I like Britney Spears, and I'd be thrilled to see her release a good album. Girl's dumb as a pontoon boat, but she seems to be completely devoid of any ill will towards anyone or anything. She was just too famous too early and has been too sheltered ever since, so lacks the tools she needs to develop herself as a strong adult -- and it's near impossible for her to get enough time to herself to develop them. I guess that's why I have a soft spot for her: whereas some people have had tools at the ready and chose to veer off the rails, I almost feel like she never had a chance. but I've said it before and I'll say it again -- anybody who is remotely responsible for Toxic is aces in my book.

I went with Mel. I believe he had more going for him before his "moment" and that momentum will help him.

Rocker's incident was a long time ago. People may forget it but it's kinda late to salvage his image.

I agree that Rush was an odd choice for this poll. Other than his drug addiction (and with the respect people have for Josh Hamilton on this thread, I can't see why people would jump on him for that problem), most of the so-called "damage" to his image is from the opinions of those who don't listen to him.

I put Rush on this poll more for the Mcnabb comment on ESPN than for the addiction. IMO he has alot not going for him.
