Hollywood actor Tom Cruise says that he has never let his ego grow despite having a privileged life because he knows that he is "just an actor".
"I have been a lucky man. I have a privileged life. I have never let my ego grow. I'm aware that I'm just an actor. I have a ball with people and I feel thankful when they scream my name at a movie premiere," femalefirst.co.uk quoted Cruise as saying.
The Top Gun star said: "In the past 25 years, I've witnessed how my life and my reality have been completely distorted, twisted and exaggerated. I have to continue being myself even though sometimes it takes a huge effort."
