TMZ The Latest To Mix Up Tiziano Lugli for Tom Cruise

Oh brother, here we go again…


This isn’t the first time that ex-Scientologist Tiziano Lugli has been mistaken for Tom Cruise zipping around Hollywood on his Ducati motorcycle.

But TMZ? You’d think Harvey Levin’s outfit would want a bit more confirmation before deciding that a video of Tiziano and his wife Jamie is Tom Cruise and his “Rebound Chick.”

Tiziano does bear a resemblance to the Scientology icon Cruise, which he used to good effect when he parodied the actor in a recent video. And on his bike, if you squint, Tiziano may look even more like Tom…


And his “rebound chick?” Actually, it’s Tiziano’s lovely wife, actress Jamie Sorrentini Lugli…


But there the resemblance ends. Tiziano is taller than Tom, and he’s no longer a part of the Church of Scientology.

You may also remember Tiziano for the fun video we leaked to Gawker that showed up last December…


Yes, the infamous rap song that featured Nazanin Boniadi.

For that, at least, Tiziano Lugli will be a legend forever, even if TMZ still has no idea who he is!

UPDATE: Tiziano had tipped us that once again this had happened. And now he gives us a bit more detail…

“We went to Chateau Marmont for dinner Thursday for a little date night. It’s one of our favorite spots in town. And as we were leaving, every paparazzi was like, ‘Tom, Tom…Yeah, that was Tom Cruise!’ Jamie and I were laughing…oh, not again!”
