This just in—believing everything you read online can be risky business.
In case you were worried after reading the breathless "exclusive" headline on Hollywoodlife.com today proclaiming "Tom Cruise Hurt in Motorcycle Accident—His Quick Moves Saved His Life!," go ahead and exhale. Mr. Mission: Impossible is A-OK.
His publicist, Amanda Lundberg, tells E! News that the 47-year-old Cruise was not involved in any such incident. "Totally false," she says of the report, which also claimed Cruise needed medical attention at a nearby hospital. "Not true at all."
Cruise's official Twitter feed also shoots down the report: "Tom NOT in motorcycle accident 2day...Tom tells us he hasn't been on his bike in days due 2 the weather, but when it clears up, look out. ;)"
There was a bike accident in L.A. today involving a red Ducati near Koi Restaurant, and while similar, it was not obviously not Cruise's motorcycle.
Besides, didn't Hollywoodlife get the message? It's Cruise who's usually doing the real-life heroics, not the one in need of rescue.
At least this is better than the last time Tom was rumored to be in trouble. Get the info in our Death Hoaxes gallery.
