What's With this Will Smith, Tom Cruise, Beckham Thing?

Every day reveals another drama concerning Becks and Tom Cruise and Will Smith, all smiling, bout to engage in some new form of "man-play." And it always involves some sporty activity with a signature eccentric Tom Cruise-y twist -- "this is what I call a target-rich environment" -- that suggests something vaguely homo-erotic between the three.


First, Becks is teaching Will Smith football, or, as we call it "soccer." Now, the three of these men -- all pushing middle age, mind you -- are getting into fencing. Where are the wives of these men? Granted, "Posh" Spice is probably out somewhere studiously missing a meal, but where is jada Pinkett-Smith, who strikes us as a woman with a good head on her shoulders, and does she know that her man is engaged in unsupervised "man-play" with Maverick from "Top Gun"? And we know what happened to "Goose."

We're just saying. Not surprisingly it was Tom Cruise, who "roped" those guys into the idea of, uhm, swordplay. From the 3AMGirls:

"Ball for one, and fun for all could be the motto for LA's new Three Musketeers.

"Actor Tom Cruise has roped in his Hollywood pals Will Smith and England captain David Beckham to take up his latest hobby - fencing - so they can, er, play with their swords together. En garde!

"Speaking exclusively to 3am, actor Will, 39, told us: 'Tom has a room for training.

"'We don't get enough time to hang out, just us three guys, so this is his way of getting together and bonding. David and I go to his home and just do fencing. It's a lot of fun.

"'We wanted an activity that was strenuous, but we're getting older - we have to think about slowing down.'

"And he joked: 'We've got to watch our joints. Especially my knee... ow.'"

We're pretty sure tom Cruise is watching the "joints" of everyone there, Will. Even your own mocha-colored "Willennium."
