He continued to share that he was annoyed with the latter’s hyper-aggressive actions.
“He’s always coming at you with a handshake, where I may bump into you, I may not, you know.”

An insider shared,
“Tom expected to walk away with the award for best actor, so you can imagine his reaction when he wasn’t even on the list — he totally blew a fuse!”
However, many believed that his Golden Globe snub is the result of his previous actions as he had returned his three Golden Globe trophies for Born on the Fourth of July, Jerry Maguire, and Magnolia. Whatsoever the reason, their relationship has continued to stay strained until now.
