Positive Praise for Tom Cruise

Reflecting on the five intense days spent shooting for the movie, Hannah Waddingham expressed her admiration for Tom Cruise, declaring, “I have to say, I have a real problem with anybody that goes at him now.” She further emphasized, “He is without a doubt one of the loveliest, encouraging, positive, and inspiring human beings I have ever met. Isn’t he gorgeous? I have no time for anyone saying anything about him.”

What are the haters saying?

Hannah was probably addressing the periodic criticism that Tom faces, primarily linked to his associations with Scientology. The controversial ‘cult’ is believed to have significantly influenced and guided Tom’s personal and professional choices. Tom is notorious for his notorious temper on film sets.

In a recent statement, Emily Blunt also reminisced about her collaboration with Tom Cruise in the science fiction action film Edge of Tomorrow. She described him as an inspiring and remarkable actor and person.

Emily Blunt’s Review of Tom Cruise

At the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures in Los Angeles, Emily participated in a moderated discussion with filmmaker Rob Marshall, her collaborator on “Into the Woods” (2014) and “Mary Poppins Returns” (2018).

During the conversation, Marshall revisited Blunt’s time working on “Edge of Tomorrow” with Tom Cruise, aged 61. The 2014 science-fiction action film featured them as soldiers in a near-future war against an alien civilization.

As Emily Blunt discussed preparing for the physically demanding role, she noted that action star Tom Cruise “raises the bar for everyone regarding perceived capabilities.”

“And because he is capable of and willing to do everything, it motivates you to match his level,” she revealed, adding, “He’s incredibly inspiring. A sweetheart to me.”

“He is incredibly gracious. Absolutely charming. Oh, so charming. I adored him. Truly. He was exceptional,” she continued, praising Tom for involving her in various aspects of the film’s production.

“We were crafting the third act on the go,” she explained. “And, once again, some of the finest movies emerge from such chaos. I anticipated it to be a bit of a boys’ club, but [Cruise] included me in every script meeting, every decision—without exception.”
