Mashable doesn’t get invited to a lot of red carpet events, so we took advantage of our primo spot at the Mission Impossible 4: Ghost Protocol premiere to ask big-name stars and celebrities what they do with technology. Tom Cruise was one of our last victims and he gave us approximately 28 seconds of wonder or is it wonderment?
The action star admitted to owning an Apple iPad, but was flummoxed when we asked about his favorite app. Eventually, Tom noted that he likes looking at pictures of his family on the device. That’s actually a favorite activity for many iPad owners, who are also snapping photos with their iPhones. No word on whether or not Cruise has one of those. If he does, then iCloud is busy syncing all those pics between devices and he probably has a fresh batch of Suri pics to ponder every single day.
Tom Cruise is on Twitter, which means he could have selected Twitter as a favorite iPad App. However, most of the @TomCruise account Tweets are from Team Tom and not the star himself. At one point during our Red Carpet adventure, Tom Cruise actually retweeted us, or should I say, his account did since, at the time, Cruise was busy greeting the hundreds of fans huddled in the cold outside the premiere tent.
We also learned that the Jerry Maguire star is not on Facebook. Sorry, Cruise fans, no subscribing to the Tom Facebook feed for now.
