Tom Cruise organized treats for the Rock of Ages
crew every week. The 49-year-old actor portrays Stacee Jaxx in the forthcoming movie musical and his co-star Julianne Hough found him a "super cool" person to be around because he was so considerate. She said: "Tom is super cool, definitely the movie star you think he is. He had his whole team around him, but that didn't stop him being super down-to-earth. We would all go out to dinner - Katie [Holmes] too. They are very thoughtful, sending little notes to everybody. Each week there would be a treat from Tom for the crew, like chocolate-covered strawberries or a grilled cheese sandwich truck."
Julianne didn't want to appear in Rock of Ages
, having previously appeared in musicals Burlesque
, but changed her mind when she heard Tom had been cast. She recalled: "Adam Shankman directed one of my music videos and had me in mind for the film. But I said, 'I don't know that I want to do another musical.' Then he said, 'Tom Cruise is in it' and I was like, 'OK, I'm in.'" As well as being impressed by Tom, Julianne also loved working with Catherine Zeta-Jones because of her foul mouth. She said: "I'm a huge fan of Catherine. She's dressed to the nines, like an old-time Hollywood movie star, and then her mouth is like a sailor's."
