E-BOOK EXCERPT

Andrew Morton uncovers the true story of the biggest celebrity of our age. Everyone knows Tom Cruise—or at least what he wants us to know. We know that the man behind the smile overcame a tough childhood to star in astonishing array of blockbusters: Top Gun, Rain Man, Born on the Fourth of July, A Few Good Men, Jerry Maguire, several Mission: Impossible movies, and more. We know he has taken artistic chances, too, earning him three Academy Award and Golden Globe nominations. But beyond that, the picture becomes a bit less clear... We know that Tom is a devoted follower of the Church of Scientology. We know that, despite persistent rumors about his sexuality, he has been married to Mimi Rogers, Nicole Kidman, and Katie Holmes. But it was not until he jumped on Oprah's couch to proclaim his love for Katie and denounced Brooke Shields for turning to the "Nazi science" of psychiatry that we began to realize how much we did not know about the charming, hardworking star. For all the headlines and the rumors, the real Tom Cruise has remained surprisingly hidden—until now.

E-BOOK EXCERPT

Tom Cruise is a Hollywood superstar like no other. World famous since his debut in the 1980s, he remains among the highest paid actors. Why has his persona resonated so powerfully with millions of viewers? Using psychoanalytic theory, "Tom Cruise: Performing Masculinity in Post Vietnam Hollywood" demonstrates how his star persona sublimates anxieties about masculinity. Amid Reagan-era military jingoism and concern over declining industrial labour, he represented a new model of American masculinity based on white-collar upward mobility. Spanning blockbuster films such as Risky Business (1983), Jerry Maguire (1996) and the Mission: Impossible series (1996 - 2011), this book illustrates how his characters exemplify entrepreneurialism, charisma, technological gadgetry and verbal acuity to redefine male success. His newly emotive type - 'help me help you' - also successfully overcomes interpersonal conflicts with patriarchal authority and senior women in the workplace, and navigates race relations. The first scholarly study of Tom Cruise's celebrity, this book surveys his entire career and builds on Richard Dyer's 'star theory.' It develops the core dynamic of his star persona, a mix of projected character traits and 'real life' trivia or gossip, and establishes that his box office success reflects his persona's ability to work through the psychodynamic preoccupations of his films. This exceptional appeal evolved, at times characterised by complicity with 1980s materialistic hedonism (Taps, 1981), male spectacle (Magnolia, 1999), or his use of martial technology (War of the Worlds, 2005), and their attendant psychic meanings. Recent shifts in American culture, however, in tandem with Tom Cruise's growing evangelism for the Church of Scientology, may be threatening his appeal. Ultimately, this book offers a picture of how stars reflect the values and crises of their societies, and fills a substantial gap in scholarship on celebrity studies, critical cultural analysis, masculinity studies, and film theory.

This book can be looked at like a conversation between Tom Cruise and someone. I remember it like it was yesterday. Your view made me feel less dramatic and my view puts me in a roaring depression. Which is why I always like hanging out. You see the sun I no longer see kibbles and bits. I decided sis and I shouldn't eat cat food any longer.

E-BOOK EXCERPT

Ever wondered how Russell Crowe and Tom Cruise rose to stardom? Decades before he would stand in the middle of a Roman Colosseum in the role that would become his most iconic performance, a young New Zealander had designs of fronting a hard rock band. Russell Crowe’s passion for music sparked his journey through drama school, during which he recaptured a passion for acting. First appearing in Australian television, the actor made his crossover into international superstardom through appearances in a mixture of action-packed parts anchored by Crowe’s dramatic presence. With the dawn of the 1980’s, the era of classically-trained and often Shakespearean celebrity actors was all but dead. Marlon Brandon and Lawrence Olivier had given way to a new generation’s desire to be entertained at a faster and more high-energy pace. It was into this world of blockbuster Hollywood filmmaking that Tom Cruise emerged as a future superstar. With dashing good looks and unequaled charm, Cruise quickly became the face of a new wave of talented Hollywood movie stars. For more interesting facts you must read the biographies.
