Tom Cruise was left wet and furious after pranksters drenched him with water during a film premiere.

Four men arrested by police may be charged with assaulting the actor, who called his assailant a "jerk".

Cruise, 42, got a soaking at the premiere of his new film War of the Worlds in London's Leicester Square.

He was speaking to a comic posing as a reporter when the man squirted water in his face through a fake microphone.

The actor, appearing with fiancee Katie Holmes, pulled the man back and took him to task.

Drying his face and jacket, Cruise said: "That's incredibly rude. I'm here giving you an interview and you do that. It's incredibly rude."

Looking the man in the eye, he went on: "You're a jerk... jerk. You're a jerk."

A spokesman for the Channel 4 show said the prank was a part of the programme which involves playing jokes on celebrities.

He went on: "The water squirting incident was not intended to cause offence and was very much in a spirit of fun."

If someone squirted water in my eye who was a complete stranger in front of hundreds of people, then I'd smack him in the mouth. [-X

What good is being a Level Four Operating Thetan if you can't protect yourself from gag microphones?

I agree with Cruise the man was a jerk. it could get to the point were actors won't give interviews because next time it may not be a harmless water pistol.

It could have been acid in that thing and then he'd have to have made endless remakes of The Abominable Doctor Phibes.
