Tom Cruise's Brazil mix-up

Tom Cruise reportedly upset his fans in Brazil by speaking Spanish.

The Hollywood actor didn't realise the national language spoken in Brazil is Portuguese during a recent trip to the country to promote movie 'Valkyrie'.

Tom reportedly addressed a press conference in Rio de Janeiro with the Spanish words "hola" (hello) and "gracias" (thank you), according to Brazilian gossip website Glamurama.

As well as getting his languages in a twist, Tom's knowledge about dancing is also believed to have got him into trouble.

Tom said the tango was one of the reasons he fell in love with Brazil, even though the Latin dance originated in Argentina.

The actor stayed in Brazil's Copacabana Palace with wife Katie Holmes and their two-year-old daughter Suri, during the trip.

The film - which tells the story about a plot to kill Adolf Hitler - sees the actor play one of the key plotters Colonel Claus Von Stauffenberg.
