DID TOM CRUISE USE A FAKE BUTT IN THE MOVIE VALKYRIE? _ Tom Cruise’s tush is attracting Kardashian-level attention in at least one inquisitive corner of the internet. An observant fan posted a screenshot of the actor’s rear from the film Valkyrie on Monday, speculating about whether Cruise employed a prosthetic gluteus maximus in the scene. He tweeted: “Hello, please, i present the theory that for one single shot in Valkyrie (2008), at 5:12, tom cruise wears a fake butt. observe.”
… Fans have since bubbled over with hundreds of hypotheses, from padding to CGI to a stunt double to a butt-enhancing angle. Of course, Cruise typically does his own stunts. Even the film’s director, Christopher McQuarrie, reportedly got in on the fun, but refused to help fans get to the.....er, bottom of the mystery.
