(In case you just read the title and your eyes went out of your eyeballs, wondering what I’m talking about: ) when I first heard that Tom Cruise was going to play a rock star, I was full of disbelief and disappointment – couldn’t they have come up with a more credible actor? I was 100% percent convinced it’ll be catastrophic.
Until I saw some scenes from the Rock of Ages movie trailer. I was blown away! Sure, it was a teaser, so it had to be spectacular. But Tom Cruise, as a rock star, looked pretty much the real deal. He has that superior attitude and that (sometimes) inexplicable energy to rock. The stage. For a movie (initially a Broadway musical, Rock of Ages, the movie, will soon be released in a cinema theater near you, according to imdb – next month I think?). So W Magazine’s June 2012 cover happened. With Tom Cruise sandwiched between two beautiful models – Edita Vilkeviciute and Abbey Lee Kershaw.
Photographed by Mario Sorrenti, W’s June 2012 cover will sit pretty on the newsstand next to Vogue’s Olympic sandwich. I’m really curious to see what comes next in Conde – Nast’s sandwich cover approach. Back to Rock of Ages – looking at the preview picture below, how do you feel about Tom Cruise rockin’ personality?
