Tom Cruise: No Plans for Retirement as He Celebrates Mission Impossible Film

Tom Cruise, 61, shares his thoughts on retirement while celebrating the release of his latest Mission Impossible blockbuster.

Inspired by Harrison Ford

Cruise, currently in Australia to promote his upcoming action-packed film Mission Impossible: Dead Reckoning, dismisses any retirement plans. He draws inspiration from legendary actor Harrison Ford, who continues to make movies at the age of 80. Cruise expresses his admiration, stating, “Harrison Ford is a legend. I hope to be still going at that age. I’ve got 20 years to catch up with him,” in an interview with The Sydney Morning Herald.

A Long-Term Vision

The Mission Impossible star reveals his aspiration to keep making films in the franchise until he reaches Ford’s age. Cruise emphasizes his commitment to the series, stating, “I hope to keep making Mission Impossible films until I’m his age.”

Passion for Cinema

Aside from his own projects, Cruise expresses his love for watching movies at the cinema. He eagerly awaits the release of two upcoming films, Oppenheimer and Barbie, and plans to see both on their opening weekends. “I’ll see them both opening weekend. Friday, I’ll see Oppenheimer first and then Barbie on Saturday,” he shares.

Unstoppable Stunts

Turning 61 doesn’t hinder Cruise from performing his own death-defying stunts in his action flicks. In the seventh installment of Mission Impossible, titled Dead Reckoning Part One, the Hollywood actor executes his most daring stunt to date. Paramount Pictures releases a 10-minute video showcasing the intricacies of the wild stunt, which involves Cruise driving a motorbike off the edge of a cliff in Norway. The heart-stopping clip captures Cruise free-falling before deploying a parachute.

Celebrating a Birthday Premiere

On his 61st birthday, Cruise celebrates with the premiere of his newest Mission Impossible movie in Sydney. Despite his age, he remains dedicated to pushing boundaries and delivering thrilling performances.
