All of Tom Cruise’s film contracts, according to rumours, contain a unique clause.
One of the most popular performers currently on the acting scene is the Top Gun: Maverick star.
Cruise, who is well-known for pulling off his own death-defying stunts in his films like the Mission Impossible series, has amassed a phenomenal net worth of almost $600 million.
The Edge of Tomorrow actor’s movie contracts, however, have an odd condition.

Large Hollywood action films frequently feature a tonne of merchandising, including action figures and video games.
Any toy store will have rows and rows of Star Wars and Marvel superheroes that look just like their on-screen counterparts.

It turns out that he has a clause in his film contracts that forbids any products with the Edge of Tomorrow star’s likeness.
Cruise’s persona in the War of the Worlds and Mission Impossible video games does not resemble the 60-year-old actor at all.
While he has blonde hair in the Minority Report adaptation, which, once more, doesn’t resemble the legendary movie actor.
If you hunt around, you can locate unofficial items for Cruise.
However, it has been proven that neither the actor nor the movie’s production company have given their official approval for any of these.
Cruise is hardly the first actor to have a peculiar clause in his contract, and he most surely won’t be the last.
According to rumours, each actor in the Fast & Furious franchise—Dwayne Johnson, Vin Diesel, and Jason Statham—must take the same amount of damage when filming combat scenes against one another.

Producer Michael Fottrell addressed this, saying to the Wall Street Journal: “Fights are choreographed to ensure that none of the leads comes out looking like a loser.”
Samuel L. Jackson, meanwhile, has a condition stating that he must be allowed to play golf twice per week while filming a movie.
Speaking to CNN about it, he says: “Generally, they either move me onto a golf course so I can play or join a club so I can play, and they have to let me play at least twice a week.”
He adds: “I like golf because it’s a perfect game for an only child like me…
“In this game, you get responsibility for everything you do bad, and you get all the credit for everything you do well.”
