Tom Cruise’s visit to Rio on Wednesday was practically a mission: impossible. After traveling around the world in recent days – India, Dubai, Russia, Japan and Spain were in his schedule – he landed at the Galeão airport on a private plane, and went straight to the Copacabana Palace, where he spent the afternoon at the gym, and in the evening he went to the Cinépolis Lagoon, at Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas, to the premiere of the movie "Mission Impossible 4: Ghost Protocol."

* There, a red carpet with a high-tech vibe – LED video screens, lights and loud music – welcomed the guests. In addition to Tom, actress Paula Patton and director Brad Bird were also there. "I love Rio and I’d love to shoot here. Maybe in the next years?" Said Tom. We’d love that. Ah, DJ Tiësto – who’s releasing the soundtrack of the film, was in charge of the music. Cool!

* After work, the whole group went to Porcão Ipanema and talked, drank and took pictures with whoever asked for a little attention of the stars. No problem. Things of Rio, right?
