Here’s How Tom Cruise Has the Body of a Man Half His Age!

"Don't take yourself too seriously. Know when to laugh at yourself, and find a way to laugh at obstacles that inevitably present themselves."

In the realm of action films, Tom Cruise has emerged as a timeless icon, proving that age is just a number with his unyielding commitment to perform jaw-dropping stunts. Since the first installment of the Mission: Impossible franchise in 1996, the actor has embodied the role of Ethan Hunt, a character that helped him gain a massive fanbase among moviegoers. With each movie, the star proves that he probably has the body of someone half his age.


For Tom Cruise, no mission is impossible, not even age. This is true when one thinks of how he performed breathtaking stunts like climbing skyscrapers, halo-jumping from planes, and leaping from motorbikes in his films. From his iconic roles in War of the Worlds to the Top Gun franchise movies, the star continues to look as fit and young as ever. So, what is his hidden secret? Keep reading to discover Tom Cruise’s secret to looking youthful even at 61.


Tom Cruise follows a highly balanced meal plan. There were also rumors the Jerry Maguire actor once consumed as little as 1200 calories a day, following suggestions from David Beckham. He believes grilling is one of the healthiest ways to cook food, whether meat or vegetables. Based on his current physique at 61, his meal plan seems to have paid off well. Cruise also avoids sugar. “I love sugar, but I can’t eat it because when I’m training, I’m doing all these movies—so I send it to everyone,” Cruise said on The Late Late Show With James Corden. During the interview, he also talked about sending his co-stars cakes, hoping to snag a vicarious sugar high. “I wait for the calls…like, tell me about it,” he added.


Leading an active lifestyle is another thing that helps Cruise keep himself looking young. In an interview with Men’s Health UK, when asked how he maintains his youthful appearance, Cruise shared, “Sea-kayaking, caving… fencing, treadmill, weights… rock-climbing, hiking… I jog… I do so many different activities.” The actor challenges his body and keeps it active through various activities that ensure every muscle group gets a workout. So, to maintain a youthful appearance like Tom Cruise, one can mix their daily exercise routines with a sport or a fun activity that they enjoy, such as boxing, swimming, or bouldering, which is always easier to stick to.


Coming to the acting front, Tom Cruise shows no signs of slowing down. Brace yourselves as the star is all set to reprise his role as Ethan Hunt in the upcoming film Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part Two.
