North Korea is back in the news this week, with the renegade communist state conducting more missile tests and exuding much machismo.

As one of the world's few remaining autocratic tyrants, 65-year old Kim Jong Il, the country's head of state, hates America with a passion. Or so he claims. We think he's merely jealous, and afraid of a hostile takeover. The supposed movie buff clearly fashions himself a Hollywood icon. See below:

Suri Cruise was a much anticipated baby, so when no pictures of her surfaced, questions were bound to be asked. Immediately after Suri's birth in April, it was proclaimed that she is "extremely beautiful, has lots of dark hair and big blue eyes" and that proud father Tom Cruise was going to show pictures of his child with Katie Holmes (below) on the May 12 episode of Ellen.

Numerous sources report that Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes have finalized their prenuptial agreement, which would give Holmes $3 million annually, up to $33 million, if she stays married to the insane one for 11 years. A home in Montecito, Calif., will also be hers.

If the marriage lasts more than 11 years, the contract becomes void and Holmes gets half of Cruise's estate. The two reportedly plan to wed soon.

He's like that wreck on the side of the highway.

You don't want to see it, and yet you can't look away. You swear you don't care, but can't stop wondering about it. We are talking, of course, Tom Cruise, star of Mission: Impossible III. While the kookiness of Cruise has been well documented in recent months, it may finally be taking its toll on the star's box office appeal, writes Kim Masters in a column for Slate.com.

Tom Cruise Quotes
