Tom Cruise admits he’s obsessed with watching movies because he likes to pay attention to how they’ve been filmed.
The 51-year-old actor, who stars alongside Emily Blunt in new combat film ‘Edge Of Tomorrow’, is a huge movie buff and takes note of how scenes are shot and tries to see as many new movies as he can as soon as they are released.
Speaking on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’, he explained: “I love it, I love movies, I’ll watch scenes of films the way some people will listen to like tracks of music.
“I’ll just go and I’ll pull up scenes to look at how they shot it.
“The opening monologue of ‘Patterns’ or the scene between Brando and [Al] Pacino [in ‘The Godfather’], any kind of movie, I just admire the structure of the scene, the performance. I watch most of the films that come out all over the world, and I go back and look [at others].”
Tom has been in a number of films himself which have been big at the Box Office – including ‘Top Gun’ and ‘Mission: Impossible’ – and he admits he can’t begin to narrow down his favourite movie because he has so many.
Asked which movie he’d seen the most frequently, he replied: “That’s hard because I don’t know which one. There’s so many. I’ll go all the way back to Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin. I just love movies.”
