Mission Impossible: Fallout, I saw it too. I know many of you did, because those box office figures don’t lie. Apparently, we all loved it too. Lots of action (believable and not) some bombs, bad guys who want to end the world--the usual action stuff. The plot was so straightforward, I had plenty of time to wonder about Tom Cruise…is he sexy?
It didn’t seem to me he was trying to be sexy. Ridiculous with his over the top action, sort of romantic with his lost love, kind of smart with the way he figures things out, and very determined--especially when he was hanging from the cliff, everything looking really, really bad, but he kept trying until he saved everyone. But sexy? I didn’t think so.
It didn’t seem to me ‘they’ were trying to make him appear sexy in Fallout. I liked that. There weren’t any shirtless scenes, no long tough-guy stares. It was only later that I had second thoughts. Maybe he was supposed to be sexy and I just didn’t notice.
I spent about an hour looking through many, many Tom picks. You know what I realized? He always looks the same. Same hair, same smile, same clothes. Even his expressions are pretty much the same.
Even though he looks the same all the time, his career really has been all over the place. He danced in Risky Business, flew planes in Top Gun, disturbed people out in Interview with a Vampire, surprised us in Tropic Thunder, saved the world in the Mission Impossible franchise. Maybe that’s his secret, how he’s gotten to be one of the highest paid male actors. Think of him as a Where’s Waldo for the movie biz.
His personal life, same thing. Married and divorced to very different women, jumped on Oprah's couch, is said to be one of the nicest people ever.
But wait! There's more to show his life is very varied:
- At age 14 he enrolled in the seminary, only to drop out at age 15 to become an actor.
- In 1990, when he married Nicole Kidman, we wore no shoes.
- 1996, he sued German Magazine Bunte for stating he had a zero his sperm count.
- Ongoing, is huge fan of professional wrestling.
Now you're intrigued. Right? You need to know, what’s next for Tom?
