Tom Cruise is, allegedly, obsessed with looking young. And he, allegedly, spends a small fortune to make sure that he’ll always look half his age.
But according to New Idea, it is possible that Tom Cruise doesn’t age that much because of Scientology and the religion’s practices.
“He swears by the purification rundown. Basically, they load a person with vegetable oil, niacin, and a cocktail of vitamins and stick them in a dry sauna for several hours a day. They say this flushes out a lifetime of toxins from the body’s fat cells. It sounds crazy but obviously, something is working for Tom – he’s very well preserved,” the source said.
Tom Cruise does his own stunts in ‘Mission: Impossible’
Cruise also made headlines recently amid reports that he continues to do his own stunts in Mission: Impossible.
During an appearance in Conan, Cruise’s co-star, Simon Pegg shared what it’s like to see Suri Cruise’s dad perform his stunts in real life.
“When you watch the movie and you see him do the stunts, and it’s nail-biting and there’s a real sense of genuine kind of peril and you know that it’s him. But you know he survived because he was on Good Morning America that morning and he did some press. When we watch him do it, we have no idea if he’s going to survive. So, he rides a bike off a cliff, and everybody’s just waiting for, ‘Good canopy, good canopy, anybody?’ It’s terrifying,” he said.
Pegg also said that Tom Cruise trains for hours before he performs a stunt. And the actor, reportedly, had three dangerous stunts in the upcoming sequel.
Ahead of the movie’s release, a teaser for Mission: Impossible 7 has already been released. One of the stunts features Cruise riding a motorcycle. And another stunt will, reportedly, involve a train and a car chase.
Tom Cruise torn between Hayley Atwell and Vanessa Kirby
Last month, the actor also made headlines amid claims that he is torn between his two Mission: Impossible co-stars. Cruise is, allegedly, interested in Hayley Atwell, but he shares a stronger connection with Vanessa Kirby.
“He’s following Vanessa around like a puppy one moment and Hayley the next. Tom’s telling them how beautiful they look and how well they played a scene. He’s obviously got the hots for both of them,” the source said.
However, this is unlikely to be the case.
Tom Cruise is just focused on making a wonderful and exhilarating Mission: Impossible movie again.
