* Recently on Twitter, Tom mentioned he was in Detroit to start filming a new movie. Ever since, fans have been trying to find him. So far, more than a dozen different fans have posted pictures on Tumblr. In every picture, Tom is smiling like the happiest man alive, and has an arm around the fan. He even took several of the pictures for fans, since he's taller.
* A magazine interview explains why Tom is as nice as he is. Apparently he was a waiter before his career, and was treated rudely by some of the customers. Since then he decided to never be rude in his life, especially to servers.
