It was, as expected, a bit of a lovefest as Tom Cruise greeted 1,500-plus Pittsburghers at the SouthSide Works Cinema Wednesday night.
In the ninth of nine auditoriums and with his teenage son, Connor, in the wings, a casually clad Mr. Cruise responded to whistles and applause with, "Hey, you all, how are you? How you doing?" to which more than a few yelled out, "We love you!"
He, in turn, flashed the famous smile that's kept under wraps in "Jack Reacher" and said, "I loved shooting here. I loved it. It was wonderful that everyone just was so warm and gracious with me and to be part of this community for that time period meant a lot to me, and I hope that you're proud of the way your city looks in the film.
