Tom Cruise Meets Keith Urban at Daytona

How would it be like to meet your ex-wife's current husband at the same event you take part at? Not very pleasant, we suppose...

However, that's exactly what happened to actor Tom Cruise who had the (unpleasant) surprise to meet Keith Urban, Nicole Kidman's current husband at the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Daytona 500 at Daytona International Speedway, The Associated Press reported.

While Cruise came at the event to enjoy some racing, Urban was the featured artist for Sunday's pre-race concert. Apparently, the two men seemed to only meet each other face to face once, but they spent the rest of the time avoiding one another.

More importantly, the two were seated on opposite ends, but Tom Cruise was spotted applauding Nicole's husband when the singer was introduced.

And since he has come there to have some racing fun, Cruise took advantage of the opportunity and hopped in the car used in his film “Days of Thunder” as you can see for yourself in the picture.

As for Urban, the country music star held a press conference after the concert where he joked with reporters about his personal driving experience. The singer told them he has never driven more than 65 mph in his personal car, before coming clean. Obviously, he was joking...

"Maybe 130," he added with a laugh. "It was pretty insane. It was only for a glimpse."

When asked what his favorite racing moving was, Urban answered again with a joke.

"Uhhhhh ... `Cars'?" he rhetorically asked with a laugh. Certainly, no one really expected he would say “Days of Thunder”, the movie featuring his wife Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise but the irony was more than obvious.
