Besides being one of the most stunning and tremendous performing actresses in Hollywood, Rebecca Ferguson also has a knack for accepting herself just the way she is and confessing facts about herself, irrespective of how embarrassing they may be. Despite being a massive celebrity herself, she doesn’t let go of the chance to commend her peers and let everyone know just how much she is in awe of them.
Surprisingly (or perhaps unsurprisingly), Tom Cruise has bagged his name in the list of the celebrities she raves on and on about, considering how she was once obsessed with him for his most unlikely role: Lestat de Lioncourt in Interview with the Vampire!
Rebecca Ferguson Had A Massive Crush On Co-Star Tom Cruise
Rebecca Ferguson just made her entry into the list of celebrities unafraid to admit having a crush on their fellow celebrities following her recent confession of having a massive crush on her Mission: Impossible co-star Tom Cruise, which developed after she watched him as Lestat de Lioncourt in 1994’s Interview with the Vampire.
As per what she revealed during a recent interview with The Times:
“I had a crush on him by the time I saw him star in ‘Interview with the Vampire’. It’s certainly a weird film, and I told him when we worked together that I had a big crush. I’m sure he was delighted! Who wouldn’t be?”
Continuing, Ferguson went on to rave about how, besides Cruise, she was totally in awe of her Florence Foster Jenkins co-star Meryl Streep as well. She said:
“Tom is a huge movie star, but I’ve been fortunate to work with so many great people. When I worked with Meryl Streep on ‘Florence Foster Jenkins’, I would go to the set, even when we weren’t filming, just to see her act. She’s spectacular.”
Having a crush is one thing, but to be able to work with the very celebrity that you greatly commend as well? Now, that’s success to a whole new level that Rebecca Ferguson has successfully achieved!
Rebecca Ferguson Studies Zendaya For Red Carpets
During another interview with aceshowbiz.com (via Gulf News), Rebecca Ferguson also shared her embarrassing story of how, on her first red-carpet walk, she thought she was doing amazing until she came across Cate Blanchett.
“I was nominated for my first Golden Globe award in 2013 with ‘The White Queen’, with other nominees including Helena Bonham Carter and Helen Mirren. I just rocked up on the red carpet. I was winging it. I had no make-up artists or stylists. I was smiling for photos and then Cate Blanchett’s team started nudging me to ask, ‘Is it all right if Cate takes this?’ She glided effortlessly, while I walked like a lumberjack.”
“I’m not great at red carpets. Zendaya, who I worked with on ‘Dune’, can just play on set, wearing socks and no make-up, crazy hair, and then just put it on for the red carpet and become like a cat. I study how she does it, even though I’m older.”
