Tom Cruise allegedly sought the help of Reese Witherspoon to boost his career and “reinvent himself as something more than an action star.”
Tom Cruise is one of the most popular actors, even today. However, one outlet claimed that he asked Reese Witherspoon’s help, which freaked out the latter. The Legally Blonde star knew that the move would upset his ex-wife Nicole Kidman, according to a tabloid.
Tom Cruise wanted Reese Witherspoon’s help
National Enquirer published a report claiming that Tom Cruise sought Reese Witherspoon’s help to boost his career. The Jack Reacher actor reportedly noticed how Witherspoon helped Nicole Kidman’s career with their collaboration.
He was desperate to get Witherspoon’s aide that he was “laying it on a bit thick” in his offer. However, the offer put The Morning Show actress in a difficult situation because she is friends with his ex, Kidman.
Kidman and Witherspoon worked together in Big Little Lies. And the former reportedly confided to the latter about how miserable Cruise made her feel. But Witherspoon was seriously considering Cruise’s offer.
Tom’s career is doing good
However, Gossip Cop debunked the report. According to the outlet, Tom Cruise doesn’t need Reese Witherspoon’s help. In the first place, his career is doing just fine.
Also, Cruise doesn’t need to escape from the action realm because he is popular in that genre. Fans are still waiting for the release of his movies Top Gun: Maverick. Besides, he is also working on the action sequels to Edge of Tomorrow and Mission: Impossible 7.
Moreover, Nicole Kidman’s career was doing fine before she collaboration with Witherspoon. She was nominated for an Academy Award for Lion the year before her project with Witherspoon, Big Little Lies, launched.
At present, there is no mention of a potential project for Witherspoon and Cruise. Witherspoon has numerous projects on her plate, including Legally Blonde 3.
Her production company is also working to adapt the bestselling novel Where the Crawdad Sings. However, none of her projects involve Kidman’s ex-husband, Tom Cruise.
Witherspoon and Kidman feuding
Witherspoon has remained friendly with her co-stars. She has several photos of her with Kidman on her social media account. The same can be said about her friendship with Aniston.
“I’m excited, ’cause I get to work with Jen every day for a long time,” Witherspoon said about working with Aniston.
“She was a big part of why I ended up doing it and we both were really part of getting the project going from the beginning.”
