Tom Cruise Denies Comparing Filming to War

Tom Cruise denies comparing film making to war.

Tom Cruise not only thinks he trains harder than Olympic athletes, he believes his job as a professional actor is as grueling as fighting the war in Afghanistan -- this according to legal docs obtained by TMZ.
As we reported, Cruise recently sat for a deposition in his $50 million libel suit against a magazine publisher that claimed he abandoned daughter Suri -- and his quotes are GOLD.
First, the Middle East -- Tom says his location shoots are just like serving a tour in Afghanistan, "That's what it feels like. And certainly on this last movie, it was brutal. It was brutal."
Cruise's lawyer, Bert Fields, says the notion that Tom compares his acting to fighting a war is a distortion, pointing to a section in the deposition -- not part of the deposition that was publicly released -- in which Tom is asked, "Do you believe the situations [being in a movie and fighting a war in Afghanistan] are the same?" Tom replies, "Oh come on." Fields says that clearly means "of course not."
For the record, here's Tom's quote, responding to the opposing lawyer in the deposition:
Lawyer: "Now, your counsel has publicly equated your absence from Suri for these extended periods of time as being analogous to someone fighting in Afghanistan. Are you aware of that?"
Cruise: "I didn't hear the Afghanistan, but that's what it feels like, and certainly on this last movie, it was brutal. It was brutal."

Those hoes over at tmz need to stop trying to make this idiotic story happen, they know damn well he was being sarcastic. Harvey stay on males he has a man crush on, when he's not wishing he's Rihanna to Chris Brown, is Tom. damn he stays on their nuts so much he's like a 3rd ball. Tom looking sexy as hell right here. he's 50 with a body like a damn 25 yr old, a nice head of hair and still at the top of his game. can see why that lil garden gnome is jealous. Harvey comes across as petty as hell, if he's not careful he will come across like Perez Hilton the most reviled and revolting blogger.
