“I’m sorry, John, but you’re going to have to run now.”
Tom Cruise keeps it at 11, and that’s the #1 reasons we love watching him perform. Whether he’s demanding respect for his cock as Frank T.J. Mackey in Magnolia or pal-ing it up with Steven Spielberg during an alien invasion in War of the Worlds, literally and figuratively Cruise will try to kill himself on screen for our entertainment.
That, ladies and gentlemen, is the definition of a Hollywood superstar. They don’t make them like they used to, and if you don’t believe me then look at this exhaustive compilation of Cruise running, sprinting, and escaping everything from futuristic cops to that empty feeling that only love can fill.
This is…”Run Tom Run.”
