According to the new issue of Details:
“Tom Cruise recently flagged Zac Efron down in the lobby of CAA to ask: ‘You ride motorcycles?’
“When Efron said he didn’t, Cruise asked ‘You wanna learn how?’ and proceeded to invite him out to his house, taught him how a motorcycle engine works, and showed him the hangar which houses his collection including the Triumphs he rode in the Mission: Impossible movies.
“When asked why he thought Cruise did that, Efron said: ‘I don’t even want to know. It’s just so cool that he gave a shit, the fact that he cared at all. No one else did that’.”
There are so many wise and winning observations that can be interpolated here, but just the fact that the star of Knight & Day invited over the hero of Charlie St. Cloud makes this a magical cinema-icon moment for the ages.
