SEOUL (Reuters) Tom Cruise, who fails to assassinate Adolf Hitler in his new movie "Valkyrie," said he grew up really wanting to kill the Nazi leader.
In the World War Two thriller based on a true story of the unsuccessful attempt by German soldiers to kill Hitler, Cruise plays Colonel Claus Von Stauffenberg who plants a briefcase bomb under a table at Hitler's military headquarters.
A heavy wooden table saves Hitler and Stauffenberg is executed with his co-conspirators.
"I always wanted to kill Hitler, I hated him," the Hollywood star of such major blockbusters as "Top Gun" and "Mission Impossible," told the press during a visit to Seoul to promote his latest film.

shut up Cruise. I grew up wanting to kill time at the Arcade.
Shut up, Tommy Boy. You’re second-in-command of a murderous cult. KMA.
Well it says where his brain is if he grew up wanting to kill a dead man.
Cruise must be a really really OLD guy....
What a crock. Merely designed to get his latest movie some publicity.
Cruise looks pretty good for a guy who by believing this must be around seventy-eight years old.
still out there after all this time. uh, Tom, Hitler is dead. Get over yourself!
If this is what fame and money does to your brain, I want to remain poor and unknown, for ever.
And then, he got back on his space ship and flew back to planet Zoltar.
Apparently, Tom Cruise is unable to comprehend that Hitler died approximately 20 years before he was born and/or believes in time travel. No wonder he grew up to be a scientologist.
It comes from “stupid money” - people who work hard for their money don’t seem to be afflicted with this disease.
I notice that “working actors” - the ones who plug away in film after film in character roles, don’t seem to be afflicted with sort of idiocy.
Thetan time travel?
Cruise will say anything to be the center of attention.
Hitler was dead 18 years before Cruise was even born. What a jerk.
Too much easy money disconnects people from the consequences of their lunacy. Until one day, it doesn’t.
No, shi’ite? Gee, that means he grew up wanting to be Eva Braun...that could explain all the pet gerbils.
T.C.'s facial surgeon deserved billionaire status before he died of old age if T.C. had a wanton desire referencing Adolf Hitler.
> I always wanted to kill Hitler, I hated him
So why doesn’t he kill someone who’s actually alive like Osama bin Laden or Mugabe?
How doe she feel about the much more accomplished murderous Stalin and Mao Tse Tung?
If not the same, why not?
Good thing Tom wasnt in the Harvey Milk film,
else he’d have to come out of the closet and
say he always wanted to...well you know.
Tom for you to kill Hitler would be a Mission Impossible, the guy died 20 years before you were born!
If brains were dynamite he couldnt blow his nose.
He didn’t know Hitler was already dead?
Yeah, well I grew up wanting to punch Tom Cruise. So there.
So why doesn’t he join the military and go after an Islamist? Nazism/Islamism = not much difference there.
“I notice that ‘working actors’ - the ones who plug away in film after film in character roles, dont seem to be afflicted with sort of idiocy.”
Yep, Robert Duvall and John Voight come to mind.
Kill Hitler? Someone should have told little Tommy that Hitler had been dead for a couple of decades already. Then he could have obsessed about something else.
Letsee...didn’t tom also say that he wanted to eat a placenta?
What a whackjob.
If I went to work some day and announced that I had grown up wanting to kill Napoleon, they would lock me up.
That’s the difference between being a normal person (more or less) and a Hollywood celebrity. Sanity if required from the former, prohibited from the latter.
Oh please, Tommy. They’re called “movies”. Not real life. Stick to jumping on couches and playing air guitar.
That a coincidence. I grew up wanting to kill Xenu, the scientologist alien god who lives in volcanos.
I bet he supports the Marxist!
“I bet he supports the Marxist!”
He probably thinks Karl is one of Groucho’s brothers.
Uh-oh, dude ! You are SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO sued !
Wonder if Hitler grew up wanting to kill T.C. If he had to listen to T.C.’s goofy psychobabble, he would have committed suicide a LOT sooner.
Yep. Hitler had already been dead 17 years when he was born. What a lousy childhood he must have had.
These guys say stupid things all the time, but reserve their stupidest comments for when they’re promoting their latest work of art.
Earth to Tom: Hitler killed himself before you were born.
“I always wanted to kill Hitler, I hated him,”
He probably thanks the gods of scientology every night that he was born too late to have to join the army and prove his hatred.
Newsflash, he died before you were born! Idiot.
Crap everybodyy already posted that. It bares repeating!
“Mighty bold talk for a high school dropout.” Juliet Huddy.
FWIW, I happened upon an article which I posted here.
Subject article is somewhat lunatic fringe, but there are some interesting linkages between Scientology, and the hollow earth theories. I tend to favor the impression they both have more occultic, esoteric involvement in fallen angels / deceiving spirits, but there does appear to be some who think along those lines.
He might be telegraphing his past thinking more than intended.
I forecast that somewhere between 20 and 100 posts repeating the obvious fact of Hitler’s death, one notion will arise insisting that because everybody thinks he is dead, he must be alive. ;^)
Looks like it’s a bit shy of 20 as of now. ;-)
That said, Tom is a nut.
