'Mission: Impossible' Star Tom Cruise Is Impossibly Interesting

Tom Cruise is not a normal man. He's lived a life of celebrity since his "Risky Business" days, and it's hard to see where he gets a chance to come down to reality, if ever. But it does happen... sort of!

When we talked to the "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol" star at the film's press junket in Dubai last week, we asked him what the most mundane thing about his life was.

Thinking about it for a second, he deadpanned: "I eat. I get up." Thinking on it some more, he added, "I eat food. I brush my teeth. I love ice cream."

So, yes. He is not very mundane. Aside from the fact that wife Katie Holmes loves pastry shops, that's about all we got out of Cruise. Of course, he's got a lot bigger stuff to worry about than the ways in which his life isn't awesome -- like these ridiculous stunts, which he insists on doing himself. With the awesome results we get in return, can't say we blame him!

"Ghost Protocol" comes out this Friday (December 16), where it'll compete against other timely Christmas movies like "Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chip-Wrecked" and "Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows." It's been a while since we saw agent Ethan Hunt on screen but we imagine he'll still be up to the task, whatever that may be.

If you can't wait until Friday for the new "Mission," you can tune into the movie's premiere in Brazil tomorrow (December 14) at 4PM EST and watch a live performance by Grammy-nominated DJ and producer Tiesto, who will unveil his new remix of the classic "Mission: Impossible" theme song.
