Cruise's Razzie shame
16:30 06 March 2006
Tom Cruise suffered the embarrassment of 'winning' a Razzie - for his outrageous behaviour in 2005.
The Hollywood heavyweight, who is engaged to pregnant actress Katie Holmes, was awarded the newly created Most Tiresome Tabloid Target prize at Saturday night's (04.03.06) ceremony - which acknowledges Hollywood's worst films and stars.
Cruise was bestowed the unwanted accolade for his cringe worthy behaviour last year, which included the infamous "couch jumping" incident on the 'Oprah Winfrey Show', proposing to Holmes at the top of the Eiffel Tower and his gushing pregnancy announcement.
Unsurprisingly, Cruise did not attend the ceremony to collect his award.
Other 'winners' on the night included Jenny McCarthy who scooped three Razzies for her work on the universally panned 'Dirty Love'.
The former Playboy model, who starred in, penned and produced the flop comedy, was awarded the prizes for Worst Actress, Worst Screenplay and Worst Picture.
Paris Hilton pipped McCarthy's co-star Carmen Electra to the Worst Supporting Actress gong for her performance in teen horror movie 'House of Wax', while Rob Schneider was named Worst Actor for 'Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo'.
