Hollywood actress Hayley Atwell has teamed up with Tom Cruise on the ‘Mission: Impossible’ film franchise, and she has been wowed by his work ethic, describing her co-star as “deeply inspiring”.
“He’s a one-man studio. There is nothing this man doesn’t know about moviemaking and the cinematic experience for the audience,” the actress told ET Canada.
“It’s deeply inspiring to find someone who is so committed to something, whose work ethic extends to so many different departments. For me, he remains a real inspiration as a professional, dedicated, enthusiastic guy, whose own success has never been his demise.”
Atwell, according to aceshowbiz.com, believes Cruise is a unique character in the movie business. The London-born star — who was previously rumoured to have dated Cruise — said, “He’s always hungry, always searching, and has kind of a childlike wonder about movies ... There’s never been anyone like him and never will be.”
Earlier this year, Cruise revealed that he watches his own movies at the cinema. The actor — who is one of the most bankable stars — revealed that he likes to watch his own films on the weekend they open. He said on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’, “I go opening weekend. I love seeing movies that are made for the screen on the big screen.”
The Hollywood star is ultimately determined to make entertaining and engaging movies for his fans. Cruise also described his work as a “pleasure.”
Cruise — who starred in the first ‘Mission: Impossible’ movie back in 1996 — shared, “When they really enjoy it, that’s what I want. I make my movies for audiences, for you all. So it’s a pleasure. I just want to entertain you.”
