Tom Cruise surprises acting graduates with speech

Tom Cruise made a surprise appearance at the Joanne Baron & D.W. Brown Studio graduation ceremony this weekend in Santa Monica, California, to deliver a motivational speech, according to the New York Post. Cruise, 51, gave words of advice to graduating students on acting, speaking about his road to success and lessons he learned on the way. “It was one of the most inspiring speeches we’ve had,” an attendee told the Post. “It was so much more than a lecture about what to do in an audition.” Among the notable lessons Cruise gave was to never be a diva on set. “He said that when you do finally get the chance of being in a movie, don’t spend the time in the trailer,” said a source. “He said you need to experience everything on the movie, talk to everyone on the crew, the grips, everyone. Learn everything you can. You will never get that time back.” ~Alfonso Espina

    Though narcissistic and a little weird with his Scientology, I still like watching this guys movies. Now that he is getting older, I hope he can capture more of the Magnolia type talent he has since Mission Impossible isn’t going to be possible too much longer.
