3 TOM’S A TO­TAL DIVA?

NW - - Nw News -

Sure, he’s the star of Top Gun, but Tom Cruise also thinks he’s top dog on the set of his lat­est film! “Tom was telling the crew not to talk or look at him,” wrote one per­son on­line re­cently, claim­ing to be serv­ing aboard a ship on which Top Gun: Mav­er­ick was film­ing. Oth­ers chimed in, call­ing the A-lis­ter “a diva” as well as “very ar­ro­gant” and “dis­re­spect­ful”.

The on­line at­tacks come at a time when the ed­i­tor for his 2008 film Valkyrie shared a sim­i­lar story about Tom’s de­meanour. “I re­mem­ber sit­ting and weep­ing,” John Ottman told Dead­line.com on Feb­ru­ary 18 of Tom and the other film­mak­ers’ con­stant med­dling with his work.

And Tom, 56, isn’t used to get­ting bad press about his be­hav­iour at work. “His rep­u­ta­tion is ev­ery­thing to him – ac­tors, ex­tras and crew usu­ally praise him as one of the most con­sid­er­ate stars in Hol­ly­wood, but that’s all changed,” a source tells In Touch, not­ing that some of his co-work­ers be­lieve he’s sim­ply obliv­i­ous to how his han­dlers in­struct peo­ple to treat him.

“But there are oth­ers who say Tom can be an ar­ro­gant jerk. Maybe he just had a bad day – it hap­pens – but this def­i­nitely isn’t good for his im­age.”

The star has been get­ting a bit of bad rap lately
