Mensagem:  You wrote: "I bumped into Tom Cruise in the streets and took a picture WITH him."

You will be understood. The problem is that the sentence is a little vague and could mean: (1) you and Tom each had a camera and you took a photo, or (2)the two of you cooperated to take a photo.

I would suggest: "I bumped into Tom Cruise in the streets and had a photo taken of us together."
