Pic: Tom Cruise's Rocker Transformation -- He's Ripped!
For his role as Stacee Jaxx in "Rock of Ages," a beefed-up, long-haired Tom Cruise is tattooed and shirtless, posing for a photo that was tweeted by the actor on the set of the musical film.
Cruise, who hired a voice coach, can definitely sing, according to director Adam Shankman. "We were basically dancing around the living room and high-fiving each other because he actually has a fantastic voice," the director told Entertainment Weekly. "His grandfather or his great-grandfather was an opera singer, so apparently he's genetically predisposed to this sort of thing."
"Rock of Ages" also features performances by Alec Baldwin, Paul Giamatti, Russell Brand, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Mary J. Blige, who will sing and dance into theaters June 1.
