I'm not native English speaker so sometimes 'the' is confusing. Teachers say that you can never use 'the' before a person's name except family's name, for example 'the Simpsons'. Really?
So, How about this case: (I wrote these sentences)
A: Wow, Can you believe it I met Tom Cruise today.
B: Who is Tom Cruise? Do you mean the Tom Cruise in the movie 'Mission Impossible'?
A: Yes, the Tom Cruise. He is soooo handsome.
B: Wow, today is your lucky day.
So, in this sentence, can I use 'the'? @.@ (I'm confused)
