Tom Cruise Shares Insights on Preparing for Iconic Roles

In a recent interview, Tom Cruise provided fans with a glimpse into his preparation process for his iconic roles, particularly within the “Mission: Impossible” franchise.

Cruise, who is 60 years old, divulged that he dedicates his time to acting and producing seven days a week. However, he also emphasized the importance of training for the daring stunts featured in his films.

“As both an actor and in my personal life, I’ve always trained to enhance my performances in movies,” Cruise revealed to Fandango. “I engage in various forms of training, such as singing, dancing, motorcycles, and cars. Additionally, in my personal life, I find enjoyment in activities like skydiving and speed-flying. I like to explore and acquire new skills and then apply them to my film projects.”

He acknowledged the challenge of finding the right balance in his training routine, stating, “It’s quite a feat, and I’ve had to figure out how to train effectively, maintain peak performance, and hit the mark precisely when needed. For instance, during a sprinting scene, it’s not just a single run. There have been days when I’ve done 50 sprints in a row.”

Cruise continued, “I have to consider the recovery time, the scenes before and after, and I’ve become better at structuring my preparations within the film. I analyze and plan ahead, determining when to prepare for a motorcycle jump or adjust my body for gymnastics or a fight scene. It’s essential not to engage in a fight right before a sprint. How do I prepare? How do I recover?”

For Cruise, the pressure that comes with his work is something he finds enjoyable. He shared, “I work seven days a week, and I’m involved in producing and managing various aspects during this time period.”

He added, “I must say, I relish the pressure. I enjoy the challenge, and when I wake up, I genuinely appreciate what I do.”
