delighted fans at the world premiere of new movie 'Lions for Lambs
' with a two-hour walkabout on Monday (22.10.07). Cruise arrived in London's Leicester Square hours ahead of the screening to spend time with his adoring fans, happily posing for photographs and signing countless autographs.
However, his co-star Robert Redford
disappointed the crowd, who braved freezing temperatures, by shunning the red carpet and entering the cinema via the backdoor. One fan of the 'Horse Whisperer' actor told BANG Showbiz: "It was so disappointing of Robert Redford to sneak in through the backdoor and leave us all waiting in the cold. It was wrong of him."
One elated Cruise fan said: "Tom was lovely. He signed everything, posed for photos with everyone, he was wonderful. There were some American fans over and he chatted to them about sport. He couldn't have been more charming." Cruise, 45, was due to fly to Rome to join wife Katie Holmes
and daughter Suri after the premiere.
'Lions for Lambs', which also stars Meryl Streep
, is a political drama about the war in Afghanistan. The London world premiere was in conjunction with The Times BFI 51st London Film Festival which runs until the end of October.
