Tom Cruise shares stark Hollywood reality with actor Timothée Chalamet: ‘It’s up to you’

There is no one better than Tom Cruise to offer insight into the lengths it takes to be a successful action star in Hollywood.

Actor Timothée Chalamet, who stars in the upcoming sequel to his critically acclaimed 2021 film “Dune,” says he was on the receiving end of that gift, telling GQ, “After I met [him] right after finishing the first ‘Dune,’ he sent me the most wonderfully inspiring email.” 

The email included pertinent contacts for Chalamet, such as a motorcycle coach and stunt training expert.

“Tom gave me this advice: ‘For the ending to work, you have to completely lean into that. Everybody else in the movie is questioning their own ability,'” Powell said, recalling what Cruise said about Powell’s character.

“You’re the only guy that’s not questioning it. So, if there’s any sort of apology in anything you say, the movie doesn’t work. Lean into the d—–baggery of it all.”
