Skip to comments.TOM CRUISE: My Job's As Hard As FIGHTING IN AFGHANISTAN
Posted on 11/08/2013 7:16:17 PM PST by LSUfan
Tom Cruise not only thinks he trains harder than Olympic athletes, he believes his job as a professional actor is as grueling as fighting the war in Afghanistan -- this according to legal docs obtained by TMZ.
As we reported, Cruise recently sat for a deposition in his $50 million libel suit against a magazine publisher that claimed he abandoned daughter Suri -- and his quotes are GOLD.
First, the Middle East -- Tom says his location shoots are just like serving a tour in Afghanistan, "That's what it feels like. And certainly on this last movie, it was brutal. It was brutal."

Humping the mountains of Afghanistan and hunting Jihadis while getting shot at and keeping a wary eye for IEDs? I think not...
Not even close dirt-bag!
“I read scripts and pretend to be someone else and get paid boatloads too” he says “Don’t you feel sorry for me yet?”
The damned sissie has no idea what hard work and facing actual danger are.
Tom Cruise wouldnt last 5 minutes in Afghanistan..the muzzies would first laugh at him, then kill him in 2 seconds flat..I dont know if the mental illness is kicking in or what is wrong with this guy but WOW he is nuts
Good frickin’ grief!!! What a pyle you are Tom to think you have anything close to the same level as our military fighting in Afghanistan.
Hey jerk what was brutal, memorizing scripts?
Amen Swampsniper, amen!
Of course Tom, we believe you. It takes as much skill and nerve to PRETEND TO BE a fighter pilot as it does to actually BE a fighter pilot.
Yes Tom, making a movie is like being away from you loved ones for half a year, getting mortared, rocked attacked, and wondering how many Russians the grizzled old local working at the dfac killed back in the 70s. Making a movie is 14= hour days. Making a movie is going to roll call and hearing the heartbreaking news that despite the best efforts of your unit and pilots, a bunch of Soldiers or Marines died because we still couldn’t get there in time. Making movies involves burn pits where you breathe in things that will give you cancer. Making movies is going to the hospital and seeing Soldiers and Marines coming back from the FOBs all kinds of messed up. Making movies is watching friends and fellow Airmen go through divorces from 4500 miles away. Making movies is just like coming home and being not having a home for a week and no access to your account.
Watching out for prowling Jihadis is nothing compared to the paparazzi. < /s>
He has to be (hopefully) catching flak for this...on twitter, or somewhere. What a sniveling little punk.
My brother is set to deploy to Stan, care to go in his stead?
psssst....hey Tom, the bullets in Afghanistan are real. Also, there are no retakes.
Not now, Not ever.
Only a fool would compare his acting to be as demanding as a combat soldier.
