    Tom Cruise tried to show off during a trip to promote "Valkyrie" in Brazil but it backfired.

    Cruise started speaking Spanish to fans in Rio de Janeiro apparently not realizing the national language in Brazil is Portuguese.

    It got worse when Cruise told the crowd the tango was one of the reasons he fell in love with Brazil, but the Latin dance originated in Argentina.

    What the El!?! Editorial:

    Oops, big screw up Tom… you would think he'd figure it out. If I were planning to kiss up to a crowd I'd learn about the country for sure!
