Is Tom Cruise Getting Singing Lessons from Jon Bon Jovi?
Actor Tom Cruise, set to play Stacee Jaxx in the film adaptation "Rock of Ages," was seen dining with his good friend Jon Bon Jovi in New York Tuesday night, possibly getting some singing tips from the rocker.
The "Mission: Impossible" actor did sign up for vocal lessons from the guy who trained former Guns n' Roses frontman Axl Rose. "He's been studying with -- seriously -- Axl Rose's voice teacher like five hours a day," "Rock of Ages" director Adamn Shankman told TheWrap last week. "The prognosis is more than excellent."
Cruise, Bon Jovi and their wives, Katie Holmes and Dorothea Bon Jovi, enjoyed a meal at the NYC eatery Il Contonori. Earlier in the day, Cruise and Holmes saw the Green Day musical "American Idiot" on Broadway.
