Tom Cruise's quotes

  • The thing about filmmaking 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 checks, be responsible.
  • [to Jay Leno regarding his topless Vanity Fair cover shoot] I don't drink but I had a beer that night and they only did one setup like that. I'm a cheap date. What can I say?
  • I have cooked turkeys in my day but when Mom's around I let her do it.
  • 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.
  • [on his role as the hit man in Collateral (2004)] I've never played a character like this before. Vincent interested me because he is such an anti-social personality, bringing destruction and chaos with him wherever he goes. He's a force of nature.
  • I remember getting through high school and thinking, "Boy, I'm glad I got that behind me!". Then, when I was 19, I got Risky Business (1983), and I realized, "Ah, so this is life - it's a little bigger than I thought!".
  • As a young actor, people were trying to define who I was before I really knew that for myself. But I still remember thinking, "This is what I love doing, and I hope I'm going to be able to do it forever.".
  • Because I grew up in so many different places, I was used to rumors [about me]. You know, I didn't have the right shoes, I didn't have the right clothes. I even had the wrong accent.
  • Nic [Nicole Kidman] and I don't talk publicly about custody but, definitely, both of us share the kids back and forth. They're amazing kids.
  • I would live with all of my sisters if I could. We've always been very close, my sisters and me.
  • SAT (exam) scores have gone right down the toilet. The parents are blaming the teachers, the teachers are blaming the parents and the psychs are putting everyone on drugs.
  • I've never agreed with psychiatry, ever. Before I was a Scientologist, I never agreed with psychiatry. Here's the problem. You don't know the history of psychiatry. I do.
  • I'm passionate about learning. I'm passionate about life.
  • [on the invasion of Iraq] Personally, I don't have all the information President [George W. Bush] has. But I believe [Saddam Hussein] has committed many crimes against humanity and his own people.
  • Every single time I start to do a picture, without fail, I feel as if I don't know what I'm doing.
  • [on Born on the Fourth of July (1989)] When I made that film people said, "This is going to ruin your career. Why are you doing this after you did Top Gun. Why not just do Top Gun 2?". I wanted to challenge myself.
  • I'm not the Stanislavsky kind of actor. I just want to communicate with the people in the scene.
  • [on Rock of Ages (2012)] Adam Shankman, the director, asked me if I could carry a tune. I said, "We'll see, won't we? This is either going to work or it's going to be dreadful.".
  • What do I want? I want a world without war. I want a world without insanity. I want to see people do well. And I don't even think that it's as much of what I want for myself. It's more what I want for the people around me.
  • [on Tony Scott] He was a creative visionary whose mark on film is immeasurable.
  • [on preparing for Rock of Ages (2012)] I spent months studying the history of rock 'n' roll for my role as Stacee Jaxx and Queen and Freddie Mercury were a big part of that.
  • [on this intense passion for his work] 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.
  • [on Ireland and his part Irish ancestry] I'm very proud to be Irish. There's a pride in America of being Irish. I can't wait to come back and I want to visit the land of my ancestors and the castle that they had.
  • [on Edge of Tomorrow (2014)] The alien invasion is simmering in the background. It's kind of Back to the Future (1985). I love movies that ask, "If you did have to live your life over again, what would happen?".
  • In 1988, Tom himself was quoted saying: "I have always been pretty much the same weight, 147 pounds - at 5 feet 9 inches.".
  • [People magazine - July 5, 2010] My first celebrity crush was Ingrid Bergman in Notorious (1946).
  • [on Eyes Wide Shut (1999)] I didn't like playing Dr Bill. I didn't like him. It was unpleasant. But I would have absolutely kicked myself if I hadn't done this.
  • [on Edge of Tomorrow (2014)] It was a lot of fun. A once in a lifetime experience.
  • Action is action, but if it doesn't have story and character it's not involving.
  • [on Edge of Tomorrow (2014)] I hope you enjoyed it. I can't wait for you to see the film. I think you're gonna love it. So thank you very much for coming on this adventure with us.
  • [on Edge of Tomorrow (2014)] It's a very ambitious movie, it takes you on a journey and its enormously entertaining.
  • [on Edge of Tomorrow (2014)] We made it for you all.
  • Flying is something that has always been a lifelong passion. As a kid I used to have a photo of a Spitfire and a photo of a P-51. I'd put them up on the wall right where my bed was so that I could stare at them, because I just wanted to fly.
