Tom Cruise meets New Zealand’s prime minister

Tom Cruise poses with Helen Clark, the prime minister of New Zealand. Tom Cruise is on the left. The photo is undated, but Helen Clark served as prime minister from December of 1999 through 2008. Tom Cruise was born in July of 1962, so that would make him between 37 and 46 when this photo was taken. Given the Japanese characters on their hats, were going to guess that Cruise was in New Zealand to film The Last Samurai, which was released in 2003.
