Yes, this ignorant piece of shit just said that. Tom Cruise truly believes that being a Hollywood actor and having to sometimes deal with the press/paparazzi is as difficult as being a soldier who may get blown up, lose limbs or his/her life while in an ACTUAL WARZONE. I don’t even know where to begin with that.
Tom Cruise not only thinks he trains harder than Olympic athletes, he believes his job as a professional actor is as grueling as fighting the war in Afghanistan — this according to legal docs obtained by TMZ.
As we reported, Cruise recently sat for a deposition in his $50 million libel suit against a magazine publisher that claimed he abandoned daughter Suri — and his quotes are GOLD.
First, the Middle East — Tom says his location shoots are just like serving a tour in Afghanistan, “That’s what it feels like. And certainly on this last movie, it was brutal. It was brutal.
As for his physical training, Tom said, “There is difficult physical stamina and preparation. Sometimes I’ve spent months, a year, and sometimes two years preparing for a single film.” But the kicker, he adds, “A sprinter for the Olympics, they only have to run two races a day. When I’m shooting, I could potentially have to run 30, 40 races a day, day after day.”
Right, so… you being super physically fit and having hard days and getting millions and millions of dollars for it is TOTALLY the same as those who do the exact same WITH no guarantee that they’re going to live another day for VERY little pay. You really hit the nail on the head there, asshole. I literally can’t even talk about this anymore. Thank God Katie Holmes did the smart thing and got Suri out of there.
