But as newly guylinered Tom Cruise told Ryan Seacrest this morning, wearing the makeup doesn't always have a happy ending.
In Cruise's new flick "Rock of Ages," an adaptation of the "Rock of Ages" musical, the actor plays Stacee Jaxx, an inked-up and heavily accessorized rocker. For the role, Cruise had to slip into some heavy-handed guyliner and enameled nails -- and his made-up appearance frightened one important potential fan: his six-year-old daughter Suri. As People reports:
"When I had the eyeliner and the painted nails, [Suri] was a little taken aback by it," Cruise told Ryan Seacrest on his KIIS-FM radio show Monday morning. "She was like, 'What's happening to my dad?' "
"I joke with friends because she goes to [mom Katie Holmes's] sets and there's hair and makeup and they're very nice," Cruise continues. "Suri comes to my sets and she's got to wear a hard helmet. There are explosions going off. Dad is bloody. He's bruised."
It's not that Suri is a stranger to makeup; she was recently spotted with her mom wearing red lipstick and a manicure. But apparently that doesn't mean she wants her pop to be stealing her look.
