Tom Cruise keen to get down under

AUSTRALIA’S former “favourite son-in-law” Tom Cruise misses hanging out in Sydney and wants to return to make another film.

In an exclusive interview with The Weekend Australian’s Christine Jackman, the superstar American actor reveals he would “love, love, love” to return to make a second movie in Australia after shooting Mission: Impossible II almost 10 years ago.

“I couldn’t wait to shoot there,” he says in the interview, published today.

“I remember saying ‘You’ve got to let me put a helicopter in there. I’ve got to fly low so I can get over that city. Please, just trust me, it’s going to be magnificent.’

“I’d love to again. I’d love to take an airplane under the Harbour Bridge. I’d like to do that very much.”

Cruise, the star of a string of box office smashes such as Risky Business, A Few Good Men and Rain Man, was married to Nicole Kidman for more than a decade before splitting with the Australian in 2001.

He spent a lot of time in Sydney during the marriage and misses the town.

“It’s a beautiful, beautiful city, the Bronte to Bondi walk, running at Bondi.”
