Weeks into traveling the globe on his worldwide Valkyrie promotional tour, Tom Cruise has finally found a place where people really, truly love him.

It's Brazil! According to the AP, that is where Cruise's latest press conference "turned into something of a fan club" with journalists clamoring for photos with the star. They loved him so much they didn't even care that he thanked them in Spanish or misidentified the Tango as a Brazilian export. (They speak Portuguese and the Tango is from Argentina).

So what do the Brazilians love so much about Tom? It's either his acting or his abs, which looked rock hard when he was snapped wandering around his hotel pool looking like he walked straight out of the Top Gun volleyball scene.

The love and respect of a nation? Flattering pictures on the Internet? This must be the best trip Tom Cruise has ever taken. (AP)
