Tom Cruise: Irish Fun in Dublin

Tom Cruise: Irish Fun in Dublin

Taking a break from his promotional duties, Tom Cruise visited the Department of Foreign Affairs and Tourism in Dublin, Ireland today (April 3).

The Top Gun hunk, who has been busy plugging his new flick Oblivion, received a Certificate of Irish Ancestry from Minister of Foreign Affairs Eamon Gilmore after tracing his roots back to 12th Century Ireland.

Cruise told press his relatives would get a kick out of the whole ordeal- Theyre gonna love it. We love a good story in our family and to really see the history in a [new] way. I knew I was from Ireland, thats why I wanted to make Far and Away, but to have this, and the work these ladies did is just unbelievable. Its just brilliant.

During his Dublin rounds, Tom also stopped in to the Guinness Storehouse to sample some stout and poured himself a pint!
