Tom Cruise has always been a fantastic source of all kinds of controversy. Be it his questionable religious beliefs or his out-of-bounds temper. It does seem that someone of his caliber can exhibit such unfathomable rage. Cruise indeed is a very private person, someone who does not like a lot of questions. One way to substantiate this is the highly controversial interview he gave to 60 minutes in Australia, where he left abruptly after the interviewer asked him tons of questions regarding his faith in Scientology, which is banned in many countries and considered a cult by many.
But one may as well not expect such abusive acts from Tom Cruise, especially considering his behavior with his own staff. His former manager Eileen Berlin has quipped that the actor had a “terrible temper” in the initial stages of his career. 82-year-old Berlin worked with Cruise at the beginning of his career, up until his 1986 film Top Gun was released.In an interview with The Daily Mail, Berlin narrated an incident when she gifted him a photo album with articles on him in teen magazines, to which Tom expressed unhappiness. In response to the gift, Tom ‘screamed’ at her and threw the album on her face, hitting her cheek. Eileen iterated that he was extremely ‘moody’ and would get angry ‘in a snap of your fingers.
Talk about being spoiled, well he certainly did exhibit a lot of frustration but wait there’s more. In the interview, Berlin said, “Tommy had a terrible temper. He harbored a lot of anger at his natural father. He was moody and would get angry in a snap of your fingers. It was like something was smoldering and it would boil up and explode. I put it down to his insecurity”. This isn’t the first time Tom Cruise’s anger issues have come to the forefront. Earlier in 2020, Tom grabbed headlines for yelling at the crew members of Mission: Impossible 7 for not properly following the COVID-19 protocols. In a leaked tape obtained by UK tabloid The Sun, Cruise reportedly said to the crew, “Do you understand the responsibility that you have’ Because I will deal with your reason. And if you can’t be reasonable and I can’t deal with your logic, you’re fired.’
Meanwhile, there are rumors that Tom will be making his MCU debut as Iron Man in the highly anticipated film Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. He also has upcoming installments of Mission Impossible in the pipeline. Well, sanity definitely isn’t what you’d expect out of Hollywood.
