(KP International) - Tom Cruise just can't catch a break. After being tossed from Paramount last week, People magazine's former Sexiest Man Alive was named the most sexist celebrity by an Australian women's group who claimed he made the year's "worst derogatory public statement" in reference to fiancee Katie Holmes. But it appears he never uttered the offending remark.
About 400 of Australia's most powerful women gave Cruise a Celebrity Ernie Award for stating: "I've got Katie tucked away so no one will get to us until my child is born." The problem is, according to his reps, he never said it. "Tom's comments that they have attributed to him are completely fabricated," his representative, Arnold Robinson, told People. "Anyone who knows him knows that he is a complete gentleman and would never ever say such a thing... He has the utmost respect for women."
