James said, “A true story about Tom Cruise. You can’t tell this summer without sounding like an asshole, it’s true. This summer, Tom Cruise and I texted about a meeting in London.”

James said, Tom “sent me a text that said, ‘Where are you?’ and I said, “I’m staying in St. John’s Wood,” which is pretty central in London. He said, “Cool, can I land my helicopter there?” And I just suspected he was kidding. “
