“The success of this Maverick sequel has solidified Tom’s unwavering belief that he’s the biggest actor of his generation—at least as far as the action movie genre goes,”Insiders say. “And Tom’s not shy about reminding folks Brad hasn’t had anything near a hit like this in years.” All that’s left for Cruise is to win an Academy Award for Top Gun.
Unlike Cruise, Pitt isn’t setting Memorial Day records. He’s still embroiled in his nasty divorce with Angelina Jolie. While Cruise accepts his honorary Palme d’Or, Cruise is preparing to promote Bullet Train. The insider concludes: “Tom’s riding the crest of a wave… while Brad’s turned into something of a stressed-out recluse.”
Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise Share Beef?
It’s a bizarre story. Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise don’t have beef. Pitt hated everything about working on. Interview with The VampireBut it was. Cruises have nothing to do. He said Entertainment Weekly, “Six months in the f—ing dark. Contact lenses, makeup, I’m playing the bitch role…”Even though he tried to escape the film, he asked David Geffen how much it would cost. “He goes, very calmly, ‘Forty million dollars.’”

That’s his second Oscar to Cruise’s none, not to mention the fact that he produced some arthouse darlings like Moonlight Minari. If Cruise wants the title of action movie king, he’d really be feuding more with Dwayne Johnson or Vin Diesel than Pitt. It must be nice for Cruise to get this victory lap, but it doesn’t need to come at the expense of anyone else.
Another Celebrity Feud Rumor
