Hollywood superstar Tom Cruise has apparently hit a rough patch. He is getting very few offers to play lead roles.
Perezhilton.com reports that Cruise wanted to make Mission: Impossible 4 but he was rejected by Paramount. Instead he got an offer to produce it. Cruise decided not to accept the offer.
The studio wants to continue the franchise with a younger star and leave Cruise completely out.
He is also having a tough time with Germans. Cruise's new movie Valkyrie has come under criticism. He plays the Claus Von Stauffenberg, the German leader who tried to assassinate Adolf Hitler.
The Germans are upset with Cruise's company for altering photos of Stauffenberg to make him look more like Cruise. Alterations were reportedly made to the nose, chin and eyebrows.
