Heart throb multi-millionaire Tom Cruise is to become the new face of garden gnomes. The diminutive thespian has posed for legendary gnome sculptor Giovanni Laregia.
"Tom has every quality a sculptor looks for in a model. Poise, character, pointy ears. Tom has it all", remarked Laregia.
Cruise, meanwhile is very excited about the promotion. "Katie is going to be so happy", yelled Cruise as he bounced from couch to couch in a well known Swedish furniture superstore.
Cruise, am avowed gnome collector himself, is not the first Hollywood celebrity to be turned into a garden ornament. Action man Steven Seagal posed for the garden hedgehog collection back in 1990 which was a bestseller worldwide.
