Tom Cruise charters private jets for gym kit?
Los Angeles, Aug 29 (IANS) Actor Tom Cruise reportedly charters private jets to take his gym kit wherever he travels.
The 54-year-old ensures he stays in shape while shooting movies, and so he uses private planes to fly his fitness gear to his next destination a day before he arrives, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
“Working out is really important to Tom and he likes to have his own equipment with him so he can exercise in private,” The Sun newspaper quoted a source as saying.
“It might seem extravagant but for an A-lister of his stature, hiring a private jet is like the rest of us hailing a taxi,” the source added.
Meanwhile, Cruise’s friend singer-turned-designer Victoria Beckham had earlier shared how she called on the actor to help motivate her own staff.
The 42-year-old was once working hard on a new collection when Cruise, who famously played aviator Lieutenant Pete ‘Maverick’ Mitchell in iconic 1986 movie “Top Gun”, paid a visit to her office and spent quality time with all of her employees.
“So I was working on a collection and all the mood boards were up and my team is in the room with me… all of a sudden there was a knock on the door and Tom walks in, all in black with a pair of aviators, and he stands legs apart and his hands on his hips,” Beckham said.
“He basically came as Maverick. He spent such a long time with every single person, whether it was the design team, e-com, marketing and he spoke to all of the seamstresses,” she added.
