You’re probably wondering: Does Tom Cruise smoke weed? The eccentric A-lister certainly seems like a guy that’s done some drugs before, but is weed one of them? We couldn’t help ourselves on this one, so we decided to check out whether or not the great Tom Cruise is in fact, a stoner. Take a look at what we were able to dig up!
Who is Tom Cruise?
It would be pretty tough to imagine someone not knowing who Tom Cruise is, but here’s a little refresher course. Cruise has been nominated for three Oscars and has won three Golden Globes in his illustrious acting career. He was in his first movie at age 19, as a small role in the film “Endless Love.” His first major role was of the supporting character David Shawn in the film “Taps.”
Cruise’s breakout year was 1983 when he appeared in the movies “The Outsiders,” “Risky Business,” and “All the Right Moves.” The 80’s were a coming out party for Cruise, who also starred in the films “Top Gun” (1986), “The Color of Money” (1986), “Cocktail” (1988), and “Rainman” (1988).
Cruise’s role in “Rain Man” earned him critical acclaim, and cemented his legacy as a Hollywood A-lister. He followed that performance up with the film “Born on the Fourth of July,” for which he received his first Academy Award nomination.
Cruise was also in a string of films in the 90’s including hits “Days of Thunder” and “Interview With a Vampire,” but his most iconic film of that decade was the 1996 reboot of the television show “Mission: Impossible.” That year he also starred in another iconic film, “Jerry Maguire,” in which he received his second Golden Globe and Oscar nomination.
The 2000’s were just as successful for Cruise, as he starred in hit films “Vanilla Sky” (2001), “The Last Samurai” (2003), and “War of the Worlds” (2005), in addition to several “Mission Impossible” sequels.
Cruise is currently filming the sixth installment of the “Mission Impossible” series. He recently starred in the reboot of “The Mummy,” which was met with mixed reviews. Cruise is also a noted Scientologist and is one of the highest-ranking members of the church.
Puff or Pass?
Tom Cruise has always been sort of a strange cat, so it’s pretty hard to get a read on whether or not he burns. As we all know, people of all shapes, sizes, and races love the ganja. But does Tom Cruise smoke weed?
Unfortunately, there’s not much evidence to support that the actor does partake. In 2008, a new strain of medicinal cannabis dubbed Tom Cruise Purple was released. Apparently, the strain was so strong, that it would cause you to “see things that aren’t really there.”
Cruise has always been somewhat delusional (cough Scientology, cough), so it was a pretty fitting name for bud. However, Tom certainly didn’t think so and was apparently furious with the name.
Apparently, the vial of pot also contained a picture of Cruise’s face laughing hysterically, which didn’t sit too well with the actor. Either way, Cruise’s anger with the strain doesn’t seem too stoner-like to us.
Final Hit: Does Tom Cruise Smoke Weed?
Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like the movie star smokes the ganja. His strange, erratic behavior and obsessive views on Scientology don’t necessarily paint the picture of a hardcore stoner. And him bugging out over a strain of weed being named after him is truly icing on the cake.
But hey, you never know. Maybe Cruise smokes, and he’s putting on some charade. But the stoner in all of us highly doubts that.
