Tom Cruise is denying accusations that he used a prosthesis to enhance his backside during the 2008 film, “Valkyrie.” Cruise felt he had to defend his honor against the rumor, which started on Twitter.
According to one Twitter user, @iluvbutts247, a shot of Cruise’s back-side captured in a scene from “Valkyrie” wasn’t real. Last month, the user tweeted out a screenshot of the scene, theorizing that Cruise wore padding, or otherwise altered his “butt” during the scene.
“hello, please, i present the theory that for one single shot in Valkyrie (2008), at 5:12, tom cruise wears a fake butt. observe:” @iluvbutts247 wrote. (See tweet below.)
The Twitter response was massive and the post went viral, garnering over 17,000 retweets and nearly 67,000 likes since it was posted.
Twitter users joked about the “revelation,” one saying, “It’s the SHEER EXTREMITY of the rump’s robustness” that makes the picture funny while suggesting that the padding was used in stunts to protect his backside.
In an interview published this week to promote his new movie, “American Made,” Cruise addressed the controversial tweet. Speaking to Screen Rant, the actor insisted there was no extra padding on his rump.
“There was no prosthetic in Valkyrie, no,” Cruise reported, saying he’d had no prior knowledge of the tweet.
Apparently, Cruise’s backside will also make an appearance in “American Made,” a true, crime thriller currently in theaters. His new “butt” scene, he insists, is also au naturel.
“It’s me. It’s not CGI, it’s me,” he reportedly said. “I do my own mooning in films. So, let it be known — I do my own mooning.”
