Tom Cruise ‘Mission Impossible’ co-star reveals kissing him felt ‘icky’ and ‘wet’

Tom Cruise, after all these years, hasn’t changed one bit.

Tom Cruise, who supposedly should age just like everybody else, looks almost the same when he debuted acting in 1981 for Endless Love.

Since then, he had become a household name in Tinseltown. Even at the age of 58, Cruise is still someone considered a heartthrob.

The actor has worked with so many people in the last couple of years that making somebody uncomfortable onset could be expected. However, Cruise is no stranger to making people feel awkward.

Thandie Newton reveals what working with Tom Cruise was like

Tom Cruise has a controlling side within him that not anybody can understand. Though he only wants each of his films to be perfect, celebrities who worked with him admitted a few shocking things.

According to Thandie Newton, who worked on Mission: Impossible with him, said he was scared of Cruise.

Speaking to Vulture, she said, “He was a very dominant individual. He tries super hard to be a nice person but the pressure. He takes on a lot.”

Though she doesn’t have any feelings toward the action movie star, Newton revealed that she frequently felt afraid being on set. Cruise reportedly pushed her “into a place of terror and insecurity.”

Aside from his onset attitude, there’s something else Newton didn’t like about working with the New York-born star.

The on-screen kiss

No other stars have complained about how kissing Tom Cruise was bad except Thandie Newton. She completely hated the experience.

Speaking to Elle, “Kissing Tom Cruise was slightly icky and sort of wet.”

She described the kissing scene as something “so clinical” because the moment becomes more about the positioning of the kiss rather than having a good time kissing.

“You’re thinking more about whether or not you’re squashing him than kissing him,” Newton revealed to The Guardian.

More uncomfortable moments with Tom Cruise

Rob Lowe revealed that Cruise once went ballistic when they had to share a room.

The two both auditioned for the 1983 movie The Outsiders and stayed at The Plaza Hotel.

Lowe revealed to Dax Shepard on his podcast, Armchair Expert, “All of the LA people survived the LA auditions, and then the hand-picked people had to go to New York to face the New York version.”

According to Lowe, meeting Tom Cruise, he said, “Wow, this guy is the real deal,” as Cruise had his eye on the ball “since day one.”

The Parks and Recreation alum also revealed that Cruise was extremely competitive on set.

“He ended up being the only one who could do a backflip. It is in the movie The Outsiders for no reason. Just to do it.”
