Washington, July 18 : Hollywood heartthrob Tom Cruise astonished his co-star Ben Stiller by expressing his wish to play an unrecognisable fat bald executive in the latter's upcoming comedy 'Tropic Thunder'. The actor looks completely different from his usual good-looking self and Stiller reveals it was all Cruise's idea.
"The role was his idea. It wasn't even in the script. I didn't have to persuade him," Contactmusic quoted Ben Stiller, as saying.
Being a superstar Tom Cruise had no apprehensions in getting into an ugly fat suit.
"Tom is amazing. We'd be talking about the characters, and in the middle of the conversation he'd say something like, My character should have these giant hands.'
"I seriously believe the man is a movie savant," Stiller said.
