Default Tom Cruise: Compares Shooting Movies to being a Soldier In Afghanistan

NYDailyNews – 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.

“And certainly on this last movie, it was brutal. It was brutal.” Incredibly, the Scientologist’s sob story didn’t stop there. In the deposition, the “Mission: Impossible” star also compared his Hollywood hamming to Olympic training. “There is difficult physical stamina and preparation,” he whined. “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,” he continued. “When I’m shooting, I could potentially have to run 30, 40 races a day, day after day.”

Default Re: Tom Cruise: Compares Shooting Movies to being a Soldier In Afghanistan

I know why people are upset about this comment, but he's not saying that filming a movie is the same as being in combat. Although he has the option to leave any time he wants, he's saying being away from his daughter for months at a time filming a movie is the same as being away from his daughter if he was overseas. What you're doing when your away is different, and not being compared, but missing your child for months and months is the same no matter where you are.

It reads very badly, but his intent isn't saying what everyone is reading it as.

Yeah, but it's a little different when people are shooting at you.

And, like you said, he can hop on his personal jet and see his daughter at a moments notice or even fly her to the set. A solider doesn't have that option.

Cruise is an idiot. It's that simple.

no. shooting a film and going home to see your kid =/= risk of getting shot and leaving your kid without one of the parents.

It is exactly like that. Except without the threat of never seeing them again. He also goes on to compare acting to training for sprints. I had no idea running in the Olympics was so easy. I can goof off then show up and run a race or two?

He's a douche regardless (as I'm sure you'll agree) and he does stupid stuff like this every few years so we don't forget how much of a d-bag he is.

Wow, some of you completely failed to read my post before jumping all of it.

He's only talking about missing his daught ... not comparing shooting a movie to getting shot at.

And yes, I still can't stand the guy, I think he's a looney, but I don't think he's comparing making movies to being shot at ... just missing his daughter.

Tom makes what....$25 million to shoot a movie and he can provide his child with a lifestyle 99.9% of the kids in this world can't imagine. I'll gladly trade places if the puss wants to keep complaining.

And PS Tommy....you've probably got enough money to live off of and don't need to be away from home if you don't want to.

Send Tom Cruise to the Middle East and pay him the salary of a Staff Sargent with the responsibility of a Corporal. After a couple of weeks ask him about his comment made about the comparison of the two. (If he even makes it that long)

While I'm sure he misses his daughter when he's away, his comments are pretty arrogant. He should've come up with a better parallel.
