Why Did He Love Cats?
I think it’s safe to assume that the man was pretty lonely after his divorce from Ray. His crew knew just how upset and lonely he was feeling that they even took him to see a production of Cats while they were filming in London.
Apparently, the production was so good that Tom went back over a dozen times to re-watch it! It must have been absolutely on-point to the actor.
Perhaps Tom kept going back to see the production because of his developing infatuation with the vibrant Rumpleteazer, played by Jillie Joan Mack.
He was so absolutely smitten with her that he decided to introduce himself and schedule a date. The pair, obviously, hit it off.
