Default Tom Cruise Understands War

http://www.nydailynews.com/entertain...icle-1.1511177


Quote:
To Tom Cruise, being away from his daughter while shooting a big-budget action movie “feels like” serving in Afghanistan.

The “Top Gun” actor was responding to a lawyer’s question comparing the extended time away from Suri while filming a movie to a soldier’s tour in Afghanistan, according to legal papers obtained by the Daily News.

“That’s what it feels like,” Cruise responded during the deposition stemming from his $50 million lawsuit accusing Life & Style and In Touch magazines of defaming him in 2012 cover stories claiming he abandoned his daughter.

Maybe I misunderstand Tom Cruise response but I do not see how.

Yes, Tom making millions of dollars, relaxing on set in a posh trailer, and eating craft services is just like war.

He's an idiot.

My grandfather served in WWII. My uncle served in Nam. My father was active military. I don't pretend to know what people have gone through that serve and to me, it's down right absurd and an affront to those that have...especially when those that make outrageous statements live under the protection of those that do.

An actor talking about the military. The military uses words like honor, code, loyalty...they use these words as the backbone to a life spent defending something. Actors use them as a punchline. The military should not waste their time explaining themselves to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom they provide, then questions the manner in which they provide it! I'd rather Tom just said thank you and went on his way. Otherwise, I believe that he should pick up a weapon and stand a post. Either way, I don't give a damn what Tom thinks he's entitled to!
