Reports are going around that in a recent lawsuit deposition, Tom Cruise likened his A-list movie star filming schedule to being a soldier in Afghanistan.

A more thorough review of the exchange reveals that's not really the case.

First and foremost, it was his attorney, not Cruise himself, who first made the comparison between the two. In response, the opposing lawyer asked:

"Your counsel equated your absence from [Suri Cruise] for extended periods of time as being analogous to someone fighting in Afghanistan. Are you aware of that?"

Tom's lawyer objected, then said he could answer. He said, "I didn't hear Afghanistan, but that's what it feels like, and certainly on this last movie, it was brutal."

When he says "it was brutal," Cruise appears to laugh a bit.

Tom Cruise suspected that Katie Holmes used the paparazzi to her advantage, with the goal of portraying him as a cruel nut job, according to treasure trove of emails.

A brutal back and forth exchange between the stars' camps that often featured their 7-year-old daughter, Suri Cruise, in the center, came to light for the first time this week.

Cruise is suing a tabloid, In Touch, for $50 million for claiming he abandoned Suri during the pair's divorce. As such, he was deposed and many revelations were uncovered.

In August 2012, Cruise’s team suspected a tough cover story on the dad’s alleged over-the-top efforts to charm his daughter were planted by Holmes “in true scum form."

Tom's publicist Amanda Lundberg suspected the source of leaked information regarding Cruise taking Suri to Disney World on a private jet was Jeanne Yang, Holmes’ stylist.

Tom Cruise admitted in a deposition something we've long assumed was true: Katie Holmes divorced him in part because of his controversial Scientology faith.

The actor was deposed in the $50 million libel suit he is filing against a celebrity news magazine that claimed he abandoned daughter Suri Cruise.

He denies this vehemently (which should be obvious if he's filing a lawsuit over it), despite the fact that no one takes In Touch Weekly at all seriously.

No one would've ever thought that Tom abandoned Suri, but nevertheless, he was grilled by ITW's counsel as part of his quest to make them pay.

The lawyer for the tabloid magazine repeatedly asked if Katie Holmes' divorce from him was because of the Church, with which he is famously aligned.

Note to all you tabloids: Do not mess with Tom Cruise. He does not view bad celebrity gossip lightly, even if few take your magazines seriously anyway.

He is a man who is very private about his personal life, cares a lot about his reputation, and has more money than small countries. Just leave him be.

Some celebs, such as Kim Kardashian, likely view any publicity as good publicity. Being in the exploitation business, you can sort of see why, too.

Tom Cruise is not in the exploitation business, however, and he is suing celebrity gossip magazine Life & Style for claiming he “abandoned” his daughter.

In the wake of his split from Katie Holmes, Tom says he never turned his back on Suri Cruise, and wants legal payback against L&S for saying he did.

Excerpts from her extensive Vanity Fair Q&A below ...

On her marriage to Tom Cruise (1990-2001): "I was so young. And you know, with no disrespect to what I had with Tom, I've met my great love now."

"And I really did not know if that was going to happen. I really did not known if that was going to happen. I wanted it, but I didn't want it for a while."

"I didn't want to jump from one relationship to another. I had a lot of time alone, which was eally good, because I was a child, really, when I got married."

When students of the Joanne Baron/D.W. Brown Studio attended their graduation, they were treated to a speech by Tom Cruise.

It wasn't the Tom Cruise as pictured in the Edge of Tomorrow poster, or the Tom Cruise of recent Scientology drama (did you catch that whole Leah Remini Scientology dustup?), but rather a Tom Cruise that was funny and even relatable.

Telling stories of wanting to make his mom and sisters laugh and his experiences on the set of his first movie, Taps, this Tom Cruise is a guy that seems far removed from the Oprah couch jumper.

Tom Cruise.

He jumps on couches, gets married a lot, loves Scientology and shares opinions on certain issues that many consider out of the mainstream.

We know this. But what's really wrong with the guy? He's been one of Hollywood's biggest stars for three decades now and is basically harmless.

So let's all take a moment and wish him a happy birthday, shall we? The ageless wonder, who missed being Born on the Fourth of July by one day, is 51.

Oblivion was the only major release this weekend, so it's no surprise that it ended up in first place at the box office. The Joseph Kosinski sci-fi thriller earned $38.2 million over its first three days in theaters.

As we stated in our Oblivion review, the film is definitely worth a watch.

Tom Cruise Quotes

I was feeling pressed in the interview with Matt Lauer. For me, my issue was really about child drugging. It's not like it is today, like people are really kind of openly talking about this.

I can't even articulate it, to be honest. That feeling, that connection. Just who she is and what she means to me.
