    TC has always claimed he did his own stunts.

    Age may have caught up with up.

    I always understood the main reason the "star" did not do their own stunts is that injury to them jeopardizes the paycheck of everybody on the set - the " little people " get screwed if the star gets injured !

    Why is TC allowed to do his own stunts ?

    Obviously Tom is PTS to Leah Remini and Mike Rinder.
    Equally obvious is the fact that he is grossly out-ethics for not having fully disconnected from them. Accidents, as we all know, only occur in the presence of suppression.

    This downstat behavior is unacceptable from one of the 2 biggest beings in the planet.
    Tom, you SCOHB!

    That's what I was thinking when I looked at the Daily Mail link above.... there were so many pictures, it was really suspicious. More like carefully crafted PROMO than a news article!

    Yet, I would not think that kind of "promo" would be allowed by TC's "master" since it involves an injury to a Scientologist "big being" and injury always = PTS according to the sacred scripture.

    Paradoxically, while Scientologists are justifiably terrified by the prospects of going PTS (and making a mistake or having an accident/injury), they should be rejoicing and celebrating the phenomena of going PTS as a huge 4th Dynamic win!

    Because, if people didn't go PTS to suppression and make mistakes, there would never have been one (1) person since 1950 signing up for courses/auditing in Scientology in the first place.

    Interesting in light of this very recent Blind Item:


    Drama Over Lazy Costar

    More drama from a major film set!

    This very famous lead actor has had it with his lazy costar!

    Our Lead Actor actor prides himself on being very involved in the production process. He often serves as producer, he is very involved in the staffing of both cast and crew, and he even likes to do his own stunts in his action films.
    Lead Actor is not at all happy with his costar on his current film. Much of his displeasure has to do with Costar’s work ethic.

    He’s incredibly lazy. He was cool about doing a lot of his own stunts on [other films], but on this film, he’s having his stunt man do EVERYTHING!

    This is definitely not making his bosses happy.

    [Lead Actor] likes to do his own stunts because you get long cuts and better continuity. It makes the whole film more believable because you have an actor actually acting. [Director] like to use long cuts, too.
    When you use a stunt man, you get lots of short cuts and no actor to bring emotion to it. Because [Lazy Costar] sits in his trailer while the stunt man does all the work, they’re now stuck with all these short cuts. It kills the the continuity of the scene, you lose the character, you lose the emotion. Costs more time and money in post, too. That’s what they’re dealing with here, and they are really pissed about it!

    The result of all this?

    [The Lead Actor] and [The Director] are sorry that they hired this jerk in the first place. Too unprofessional, too lazy. Can’t fire him for this one, but he will not be asked back for the next installment of the franchise. They won’t work with him again!

    Maybe Lazy Costar can go stand on the unemployment line with his friend?

    Film: Mission Impossible 6
    Lead Actor: Tom Cruise
    Lazy Costar: Henry Cavill

    Gyroscopic effect. Especially effective in jumping over buildings in Chinese martial arts movies.

    This makes no sense. They were way off. It does look like he had protective gear on under his clothes (or he is getting a little puffy in places) but are we expected to believe that they don't have at least a dummy or stunt man to dry run the rigging? We can't see the side of the building that he hit. Wouldn't there be some kind of padding there?

    Are they using Sea Org members on the rigging crew? You know - Just make it go right Tom!

    Yeh. :hmm: I'm not so sure that's Tom Cruise, either. The one big picture I posted looks like a partial mask on the face and doesn't resemble him that well. The nose is entirely different, too. If you do freeze frames on :08 to :11, there's something odd going on there, like a mask being pulled off. When you play the clip at regular speed, none of that can be seen. Some stealthy, fast hand motions there by the man with orange safety vest and looks like he's holding something rolled up in the hand he keeps hidden. After that, no close-ups of the actor's face.

    Tom Cruise does it again! :footbullet: Banged his knee? Twisted an ankle? Poor baby! :melodramatic: The high cost of narcissism.

    I don't think his long list of cosmetic surgeries will earn him any purple stars, either.
