In our continual quest to bring you the hotness that is Connor Cruise (yes, he’s a tween, but we don’t care), here’s a hunky shot of Tom Cruise’s 14-year-old cutie spending Fathers Day at a NASCAR race in Sonoma, Calif. with his movie star dad.
Watching the Sprint Cup Series Toyota/Save Mart 350, Connor and dad sported tees and matching sunglasses. It was only in May that the father-son duo sat courtside for a Lakers game.
Check out more shots of Connor at Huffington Post.

Tom Cruise and his adopted son Connor were front and center at the Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles on Thursday as the Denver Nuggets beat out the LA Lakers in Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals.
The father and son duo sat courtside watching the game intently matching gestures and making quite a handsome pair.
Connor who is just 14 years old looks to be growing up fast and quite nicely! Blindie wonders if he will follow in dad’s superstar footsteps to become an actor since he’s already on his way to heartthrob status.

Will Smith was voted the top earning star of 2008 in the Quigley Publishing Company’s 77th annual Top Ten Money Making Stars poll.
The Seven Pounds star beat out last year’s top Money Maker Johnny Depp and seven-time winner Tom Cruise, who both did not make the list this year. Smith is only the second African American to hold the title after Sidney Poitier nabbed the spot in 1968 following the success of the films Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner and In the Heat of the Night.
Robert Downey Jr., Christian Bale and Shia LaBeouf all made debut appearances on the list in second, third, and fourth places respectively.
The Quigley poll is conducted by the publishers of the International Motion Picture Almanac and surveys movie theater owners and film buyers to vote for the 10 stars they believe generated the most box office revenue for their theaters during the year.

Sense About Science annually reports on celebrities “misleading claims” about science and has listed Mariah Carey as one of this year’s offenders in the mathematics category.
The 2008 Science report calls out Carey for ignoring basic algebra and translating her latest album title E=MC2, which is borrowed from Einstein’s most famous scientific formula for mass-energy equivalence, as “emancipation equals Mariah Carey times two,” instead of squared.
The number two in the equation acts as an exponent to the C variable, meaning the C would be multiplied by itself -another C, and not multiplied by the number two as Carey has mistakenly said.
But since Carey squared is exponentially better than Carey multiplied by two, we think Mimi’s new math deserves an A plus!
A few other celebrities busted for their lack of science sense: Tom Cruise for pooh poohing psychiatry, Demi Moore for endorsing the detox benefits of leeches, and TV cook Delia Smith for claiming the nation’s obesity could be cured ” if we cut down sugar addiction.”

Barbara Walters named President-elect Barack Obama as 2008’s No.1 “Most Fascinating” person on her ABC special Barbara Walters Presents: The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2008, on Thursday.
Making history as the first African American to be elected as president, Obama was probably the most expected choice.
“This was almost the easiest year that we’ve ever had, because we had so many naturals,” said Walters.
The $100 million dollar box office man Will Smith brings up the rear in the 10th position.
And sandwiched in between America’s most beloved black men are Tom Cruise in the No. 2 spot, followed by former GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, actor Frank Langella, the pregnant man Thomas Beatie, conservative republican radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh, Saturday Night Live veteran and 30 Rock star Tina Fey (yes, this sort of balances out Palin’s presence on the list!), teen actress and rock star Miley Cyrus, and Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps.
