Tom Cruise Says He Invented the International Press Tour

Tom Cruise sits down for an appearance on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday evening (June 4) in New York City.

The 51-year-old Edge of Tomorrow actor recently said the he invented the international press tour that movie stars now go on all the time.

“It was Top Gun,” Tom said. “We traveled all over the world — Italy, Paris, Japan. I always wanted to travel foreign, it was amazing. It took four months, this tour. We used to do these tours, foreign, it would take months. We’d spend weeks in one place. I loved spending that time, but I was working [on other things] — Scorsese was editing Color of Money, there was an early draft of Rain Man.”

“That’s when I came up with the idea of doing — I thought we’d do a country in a couple of days. I like premieres … so I came up with the idea of let’s have premieres in different countries. I came up with that, it took a few years to get it going,” Tom added.
