Tom Cruise Topics
I think the U.S. is terrifying and it saddens me. You only have to look at the state of affairs in America. I do worry about my children. As a parent you are always concerned. I just want them to be in a place where they are going to be strong enough to be able to make the right choices. Unfortunately we're in a position where people are so irresponsible that human life holds so little value to them.
I have been a lucky man. I have a privileged life. I have never let my ego grow...Im aware that Im just an actor. I have a ball with people and I feel thankful when they scream my name at a movie premiere.
I love what I do. I take great pride in what I do. And I can't do something halfway, three-quarters, nine-tenths. If I'm going to do something, I go all the way.
I didn't become an actor to have power, but it just happens that I have it and so I have a lot of opportunities.
I believe in life. I know that life comes in at your heart and it doesn't matter if you're an actor, a filmmaker or a gentleman on the street, it comes at you. What Scientology gives me is the tools to deal with that, to better enjoy my life and to be able to contribute more.

I've been...chased by paparazzi, and they run lights, and they chase you and harass you the whole time. It happens all over the world, and it has certainly gotten worse. You don't know what it's like being chased by them. It is harassment under the guise of, you know, 'We are the press, we are entitled.' When people are having a private moment, they should be allowed to have a private moment.
Awards are wonderful. I've been nominated many times and I've won many awards. But my journey is not towards that. If it happens it will be a blast. If it doesn't, it's still been a blast.
If they don't like Scientology, fu.. you. Really. fu.. you.
Suri would be like, That was good, Dad. And shes got the headphones on. She watches every take. You know what, shes got an incredible imagination. In between takes shed set up a bakery, and I be like, What do we have today? Its just that imagination and thats making movies.
There's this huge industry, this machine, pushing us to hurry up and put our kids on drugs. Well, you know what I say to that machine? I say 'screw you.' Controversy doesn't bother me, because I know what I'm saying is right.
Who cares what other people say? There are some people who just don't like to see other people happy!
When you have to cope with a lot of problems, you're either going to sink or you're going to swim.
When you become successful in any type of life, there are people who are not contributing to the motion.
When I work, I work very hard. So I look to work with people who have that level of dedication. And I depend on that from everyone. From the director to my crews that I work with.
When I first started out all the attention could be a bit unnerving, especially when people stared. Now I find the best thing is to just relax. Being recognized is just something you have to get used to.
What I find sometimes that is tricky is if actors are using too much of their own life in a picture, in a scene, they get locked into a particular way to play the scene, and it lacks an immediacy.
The thing about film-making is I give it everything, that's why I work so hard. I always tell young actors to take charge. It's not that hard. Sign your own cheques, be responsible.
The exciting part of acting, I don't know how else to explain it, are those moments when you surprise yourself.
