Tom Cruise Compares His Acting Job To Fighting War In Afghanistan, Delusional?
Oh, Tommy. Our dearest Tom Cruise is probably regretting his decision to sue tabloids for libel, now that he’s being put front and center of this whole case. By suing the tabloids for defamation [for claiming that he was abandoning daughter Suri Cruise following his divorce from Katie Holmes], he’s opened up himself to several lines of questioning – and his answers are not making him look good.
In one of the questions, when describing why his job was apparently too difficult for him to travel, he actually compared shooting one of his action movies to serving as a solider in Afghanistan. He claims, “That’s what it feels like. And certainly on this last movie, it was brutal. It was brutal.” If anyone needed any more proof that Tom’s become delusional, there it is.
He also added, for good measure, “There is difficult physical stamina and preparation. Sometimes I’ve spent months, a year, and sometimes two years preparing for a single film. 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.”
First, he compares himself to a soldier. And then, he compares himself to an Olympian. Christ, Tommy, you really don’t hear the words coming out of your mouth, do you? Of course, his comments have been getting repeated coverage, and just provided goldmine after goldmine of humorous commentary. His level of confidence is quite astounding, but his delusions are a tad bit worrying, no? Of course, anybody who believes that an alien overlord by the name of Xenu is out to get him [per Scientology doctrine] will probably believe anything.
