Rock of Ages’ actor, Tom Cruise might be 49 years old, but his fitness levels can put a 20 year old boy to shame. And the cost he pays to stay at the pinnacle of health and good looks is, hard-core gym sessions. No wonder, on occasions, his muscles go through bouts of intense fatigue.
Simon Pegg, his ‘Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol’ co-star reveals that Tom used to slip inside an ice suit, straight away after filming physically demanding stunts, to relieve his aching muscles.Pegg added that Tom trained like anything to be in the best shape, so, an ice jacket was indispensible to get him going the next day. Simon asserts that he admires his rock-solid determination.
Russel Brand, Tom’s Rock of Ages co-star has no different opinions about him. Russel calls him a man of unfathomable charisma, who is great fun to be around.
