In the hopes of diverting some attention back onto Cruise's work at least for today, Digital Spy quizzed his Rock of Ages co-stars about their favourite Cruise performance, and how they found the experience of working with him.
"You understand through working with him why he's had such a long movie career," Malin Akerman explained.
"He's such a hard worker, he's so present as an actor, he's very collaborative, it's wonderful to work with him."
"He was always throwing different stuff out there which was great, kept you on your toes," added Paul Giamatti.
"He treats each day on set as if it's his first and last movie, and that's a very cool quality to have," Diego Boneta offered. "He's seen it all and worked with everyone, but he's a very humble guy."
After finding out what Akerman, Giamatti, Boneta, Julianne Hough and Mary J Blige's favourite Cruise films are, you can read Digital Spy's countdown of his top ten movie moments.
