Everyone in the world knows how dedicated Tom Cruise is when it comes to the projects that he takes on. From being fearless doing some of the world’s most deadly stunts in all of his Mission: Impossible movies to defying the laws of gravity in the Top Gun franchise, there are only a handful of superstars in the industry that can compare to the daring that the actor shows within his films.
But at the end of the day, the Jack Reacher star is also known to be one of the sweetest and most caring actors to work with, treating all of his co-stars with respect. With almost four decades in the film industry, he has made many friends along the way, to whom he shows love and affection by delivering his famous white chocolate cakes every Christmas. But according to TV show host James Corden, Cruise has reportedly never tried that cake.
Tom Cruise Has Never Tried His Famous White Chocolate Cake!
Never saying no to a challenge when it comes to doing death-defying stunts in his movies, Tom Cruise can be defined as a handsome adrenaline junkie with admirable skills in acting. Showcasing many one-of-a-kind action sequences and overcoming challenges in high-stake situations even at 60 years of age, it’s no surprise that The Mummy star is a little health-conscious due to his tight training regime and physical condition that he needs to maintain.
But what is a bit surprising is the fact that the star is so constrictive with his diet that he has never tasted the white chocolate cake that he gets delivered to all his friends that he has made in the industry every Christmas. The cake, made by Doan’s Bakery in Woodland Hills, is said to be one of the most delicious desserts ever had by everyone who receives it, but Cruise is said to be the only one who has never experienced its deliciousness.
In a recent interview, The Late Late Show host James Corden, also one of Cruise’s friends who receives the legendary dessert on Christmas, revealed on Heart Breakfast radio show that during his conversation with Tom Cruise, the star revealed that he only hears how good the cake was, but has never tasted it himself. He said:
“It’s unbelievable, I would say almost everybody he meets who works on ‘The Late Late Show’ gets one of these cakes. It’s like our head writers, Ian and Lauren (get one) – you know, different people that he’s met. He’s (Tom Cruise) just so gracious and generous. But here’s the most amazing thing. He’s never tried it! On my life! I said to him once, ‘This cake is the most extraordinary cake I’ve ever eaten in my life,’ and he went, ‘That’s what everybody says!’”
As stated earlier, Cruise has also revealed that the reason why he keeps himself in check for not eating the cake is that his training regime restricts him from indulging in the dessert, so the only way he can truly enjoy it is through sharing it with his friends.
What To Expect From Mission: Impossible: Dead Reckoning?
Talking about his restrictive diet and work schedule filled with physical torture for his films, Cruise is ready to take on new and even more deadly challenges in Mission: Impossible: Dead Reckoning Part One, where he is seen jumping off a cliff on a motorcycle and hanging off a plane to name a few. Even at the age of 60, he is not going to back down from a challenge, and sacrificing the taste of one of the most delicious desserts is a small price to pay.
