Tom Cruise has never been shy about expressing his beliefs, and in a recent deposition, the actor said he believed acting was as hard as fighting a war.

Cruise was being deposed for his case against Bauer Publishing. He is suing them for stories two of its publications that stated he had “abandoned” his daughter Suri.

During the deposition, a lawyer questioned Cruise about remarks his camp had made equating his work and inability to see daughter Suri to fighting in Afghanistan.

TMZ quotes Tom as saying his location shoots are just like serving a tour in Afghanistan, “That’s what it feels like. And certainly on this last movie, it was brutal. It was brutal.”

Brutal? I think I am going to lose my lunch of that statement. First of all I am not sure he’d qulify…you have to be at least 60 inches tall to get into the military.

Heck,Cruise wouldn’t last for 30 seconds if he had to serve along-side our heroes in the armed forces. How dare he put himself in the same sentence as them?

Cruise also believe he could be an Olympic athlete. “There is difficult physical stamina and preparation. Sometimes I’ve spent months, a year, and sometimes two years preparing for a single film. A sprinter for the Olympics, they only have to run two races a day. When I’m shooting, I could potentially have to run 30, 40 races a day, day after day.”

I think Cruse should feel very lucky that Katleen Sebelius announced today that insurance companies have to cover mental problems…he needs it.

Then again, it should be no surprise as the guy believes in Scientology and the evil ruler Xenu

Xenu is the name of the evil Galactic Supreme Ruler who around 75,000,000 years ago was responsible for a mass murder on the planet Teegeeack (Earth). Xenu’s story is featured prominently in OT3 (specifically Incident II) and was later expanded by L. Ron Hubbard into an unproduced movie script treatment called Revolt in the Stars

According to Hubbard, the Galactic Confederacy was horrendously over-populated, so Xenu (before an imminent coup) told untold billions of aliens to come in for income tax audits, whereupon they were drugged with alcohol and glycol, cryogenically frozen, and sent to Teegeeack. Here they were dropped at the bases of volcanoes which had Hydrogen Bombs detonated from within, killing all the aliens. Xenu was later captured by Loyal Officers, who imprisoned him inside a mountain on a distant planet behind an eternally-functioning force field. Supposedly he remains there to this day.

Cruise should wake up ever day praying he had the honor, class, and physical make up of America’s heroes.
