Tom Cruise's dangerous and exciting stunts that he performed for his highly anticipated summer 2015 movie "Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation" are drawing attention to his acting work and is starting to stem the tide of the public relations battle he is engaged in with the Scientology documentary "Going Clear" in his favour (Yahoo Movies - May 1).
Movie fans have become fascinated with the clips of his motorbike and plane stunt scenes that are part of his YouTube trailer for the upcoming "Mission Impossible" movie as several million viewers have watched the clips and excitement about the release of the movie is increasing while talk about the Scientology documentary which discusses aspects of his chosen religion is not 'dominating' conversations about the Mission Impossible actor (CTV News - May 5).
For Tom Cruise the change of tide seems to be coming from his younger fans and comes at a great time as fans on social media are looking at the excitement he is generating through his stunts as one of the major reason why they view his Mission Impossible movie as one that is worthy of visiting the movie theatres this summer.
Moreover, the incessant criticism of his personal life has ironically resulted in some entertainment fans viewing him as the persecuted individual who is being 'bullied' by some in the media almost to the point of being a victim.
Sometimes when the criticism of the private life of an actor such as Tom Cruise becomes almost all-encompassing it results in attention being directed to their acting projects and what many viewers are finding is that Tom Cruise's acting in "Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation" is sensational entertainment and has them talking more about his upcoming film than the "Going Clear" Scientology documentary.
Tom Cruise's situation is a lesson to young actors to focus on one's work and ignore the 'white noise" because actors are judged first and foremost on the quality and entertainment value of their acting.
