Is this really the same happy go lucky dude we all loved from Jerry Maguire?? Tom Cruise has become a pretty weird guy over the years and has said some crazy things. But these comments here have to take the cake. He compares being an actor to being in the war in Afghanistan, and he is dead serious! SMH!! Hit the jump to see what he said. He already owes all military members an apology.


Cruise made some pretty forgettable statements during a recent deposition for a lawsuit he has pending. 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.” He then went on to pretty much say he is the greatest thing in the world when he added “There is difficult physical stamina and preparation. Sometimes I’ve spent months, a year, and sometimes two years preparing for a single film.” But the kicker, he adds, “A sprinter for the Olympics, they only have to run two races a day. When I’m shooting, I could potentially have to run 30, 40 races a day, day after day.”

So not only does being an actor mean your life is harder than a solider, it also means you train harder and better than world classy Olympic athletes. I would love to try whatever drug he was on when he spoke.
