“Tom! It was wonderful to see you again in Mexico . You are such a kind and warm person, so considerate with all of us your fans! I had the privilege of meeting you on the first time on the Premiere of Mission Impossible III and was amazed that you took the time to take pictures with almost everyone!!! And also gave so many autographs, always with your wonderful smile. And now in this premiere you were as nice as ever, thank you! You definitely made my day (Knight! haha).”

ABOVE: Gabriela gets her wish of an up-close picture with Tom. She reports it was a picture she waited years to get:

“Having the opportunity to greet Tom Cruise in person again was amazing I thought I’d had my lifetime chance to meet him in person on the Mission Impossible III Premiere and I didn’t take my camera that time because they said it was forbidden… so you can imagine my shock when Tom Cruise himself said hello and asked me “Do you have your camera?” But now I wouldn’t miss it for the world… and I DID bring my camera. Unfortunately I didn’t manage to get one with Cameron too… but seeing them both in Mexico and their kindness and warmth was great and I am so delighted about it!”

    My dearest Tom,
    I’m so mad! I lost the opportunity to talk with you for the third time here in Mexico. I went to Santa Fe to see you but, a cinema’s employee told me that it was a private event. Please TOM!!! Organize your next premier at the Auditorio Nacional. It’s the perfect place for you and for your thousands and thousands of fans in Mexico. And Happy Birthday!!!! I can’t believe it you look so great!!!
