Los Angeles:

Hollywood superstar Tom Cruise has slammed reports that he had claimed to be a reincarnation of William Shakespeare. A hoax website claimed that Cruise said he was a poet, composer, and explorer in previous lives. He also supposedly claimed: “I was much happier in previous existences when I wrote plays, composed music, conquered nations, discovered continents and developed cures for diseases.” Cruise’s representative says: “This interview is a total fabrication. Tom did not say those things.”
