Tom Cruise, who has been focusing fully on his career since his split from Katie Holmes, is being urged by loved ones to slow down his work schedule for his health.
Pictures of the Hollywood hunk from last month have now shown what the strain of the collapse of his marriage has had on him, as he had shed 14 pounds.
The Mission Impossible star looked quite beefed out, as pictures from the set of Oblivion 2 of July 10 revealed, compared to the slim figure that he cut three weeks later on July 28 in Malibu while having lunch with his lawyer.
According to reports, since Cruise got word of his wife’s decision, he has dived deeper into work, and is ignoring concern from his family members.
“Tom’s friends and family have urged him to take a break, but he has brushed off their concern,” the Daily Mail quoted a source as telling Italian glamour magazine Grazia.
“He is refusing to slow down and is trying to soldier on. He doesn’t seem to be himself. He hasn’t been working out like he normally does and doesn’t appear to be eating well at all. His clothes just hang off him.
“His way of dealing with this is to throw himself into his work, but as a result he’s not looking after himself, and he risks cutting himself off from people who care about him and want to make sure he’s OK,” the source said.
