Which would make it only that much more hilarious.

I personally think it is absolutely amazing that Tom Cruise knows of 
Shakespeare.

A similar strange but true report...

"Jessica Simpson Sets Sight on Shakespeare"

http://www.contactmusic.com/new/xmlfeed.nsf/mndwebpages/simpson%20sets%20sight%20on%20shakespeare

Jessica Simpson is desperate to hone her acting skills on the London 
stage - but will consider nothing less than a role in a William 
Shakespeare play.

The 25-year-old beauty, who plays sex-bomb DAISY DUKE in the big screen 
version of THE DUKES OF HAZZARD, now considers herself a seasoned 
actress and is convinced a classic production would finally eradicate 
her dumb blonde image.

Simpson says, "When I arrived in England the first thing I did was go 
straight to the Globe Theatre.

"For me that is the home of acting and writing.

"I have always loved Shakespeare. That's the job I want - anything at 
the Globe."
