New York, Feb 6 (ANI): American actor Tom Cruise got his geography mixed up when he greeted reporters in Portuguese speaking Rio de Janeiro, by speaking to them in Spanish.

Cruise was in the Brazilian city to promote his movie Valkyrie, and he tried to get friendly with the reporters by saying hola (hello) and gracias (thanks) to them, reports the New York Post.

According to, the actor further showed his ignorance when he said he fell in love with Brazil after watching movies about samba and tango, unaware that tango is an Argentine dance.

He and his wife Katie and baby Suri have been staying at the Copacabana Palace, and he took a side trip to the private island of plastic surgeon Dr. Ivo Pitanguy, who has his own landing strip and a menagerie of exotic animals. (ANI)
