I guess Tom Cruise didn’t agree to a paycut after his contract was allowed to lapse and Paramount didn’t like his current “behavior” since Paramount has decided to end their relationship with Cruise’s film production company.
“It’s nothing to do with his acting ability, he’s a terrific actor,” Redstone said. “But we don’t think that someone who effectuates creative suicide and costs the company revenue should be on the lot.”
They claim Cruise’s recent antics cost Mission Impossible around $100 to $150 million in ticket sales. It seems jumping on couches, impregnating someone half your age and then eating placenta aren’t good ways to hype your image. Or maybe Cruise just didn’t get the timing down.
