Empire magazine has chosen Tom for the cover of its 25th Anniversary issue (May 2014) and call him ‘The Legend of Our Lifetime’. We couldn’t agree more with them.
‘Tom Cruise is a force of nature, an actor who has sustained his career across three decades now at the very peak of his profession. During the last 25 years, he has appeared on more Empire covers than anyone else, and with his new film Edge Of Tomorrow approaching cinemas, we chose Cruise as this month’s cover star and the subject of a career-spanning interview inside.
Inside the magazine, Cruise talks us through a career that has seen him work with Stanley Kubrick, Oliver Stone, Steven Spielberg, Sydney Pollack, Jack Nicholson, Paul Newman and virtually everyone who’s anyone. Of his upcoming film with Doug Liman, he says, “The alien invasion is simmering in the background. It’s kind of Back To The Future. I love movies that ask, if you did have to live your life over again, what would happen?”
Since the film sees Cruise’s character killed about 200 times (his director’s estimate) he should get a chance to find out.’
There’s a different cover only for subscribers.
We’ll post the scans as soon as we have the magazine.
