Amy Nicholson is the film reviewer for LA Weekly and she is disappointed that Tom Cruise is not the movie star that he once was.

OK, fair enough. But Nicholson doesn't bemoan Cruise's choice of movie projects. She wants to place the blame on us — the Internet consumers who ruined Tom's career because we thought we saw Tom jump on Oprah Winfrey's couch back in 2005 and made fun of him for it.

Actually, if you watch video of Tom's 2005 appearance on Oprah's show, he does indeed jump on her couch — twice — but Nicholson tells us that GIFs made of the moment exaggerated Tom's antics and made it look like Tom was jumping up and down on her couch, when that wasn't the case.
