Tom Cruise: Nude Statue of Actor Unveiled in Celebration of His Anniversary as a Scientologist

by at .

It's a strange time to be Tom Cruise.

His new movie - the heavily-punctuated Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation - is getting rave reviews, but the public isn't exactly enthralled with the pint-sized action hero these days.

For months, we've been hearing rumors about Cruise neglecting his daughter and alienating his co-stars due to his intense commitment to Scientology, and after a string of flops, the former A-list is more desperate for a hit than Lindsay Lohan at a Narcotics Anonymous meaning.

So Cruise might be in need of a bit of an ego boost as the Rogue Nation press tour wraps up  - and we're guessing this statue of a testicularly well-endowed nude Cruise ought to do the trick:

The statue - by controversial artist Daniel Edward - was reportedly erected (tee-hee) in order to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Cruise's involvement with the Church of Scientology.

You may remember Edward as the sculptor who previously gave us such gems as Paris Hilton overdosing and Britney Spears giving birth on a bearskin rug.

We're not sure what he's trying to say with this statue of Cruise, but if it's built to scale, it could be a nice gift for any toddler looking for a same-size companion.

The man is super short, is what we're saying.

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.
