There are a lot of odd rumors surrounding Tom Cruise. He’s one of the biggest film stars in the world, after all! But before we make up our minds about the Mission Impossible star, let's go over the strange rule Cruise has for his co-stars that’s more than a little bizarre. And after one of his scene partners spilled the truth, the information cast his films in a whole new light.
In truth, Cruise’s behavior has been a little odd both on and off his movie sets. Maybe being in Hollywood for so long has affected what he sees as normal? And Cruise has been acting for decades now, ever since he was a 16-year-old. Since then, of course, he’s risen through the ranks to become a huge star.
Demanding the most
But alongside those astronomical accomplishments in Hollywood, there are persistent claims of eccentric behavior on Cruise’s part. There are rumblings, too, of bizarre demands that the actor has made on behalf of both himself and his co-stars.
Does Scientology play a part?
Some chalk this up to Cruise’s membership of the Church of Scientology. And if rumors are to be believed, the Church has gone above and beyond to help the actor. One defector has alleged that the organization chose a romantic partner for the Hollywood star. Cruise has never confirmed this, though.
Actress and former Scientologist Leah Remini has also claimed that the A-list actor liked to play hide-and-seek with other adults. Then there’s the allegation that he believes himself to hold healing powers. And observers have noted one particularly eerie similarity in Cruise’s life. He separated from all three of his wives – Katie Holmes, Nicole Kidman, and Mimi Rogers – when they were aged 33. Is this just a coincidence?
