Despite directing actors like Sir Ian McKellen, Kevin Spacey, Hugh Jackman and Brandon Routh in his previous films, Hollywood director Bryan Singer is all praise for superstar Tom Cruise, who stars in his latest film Valkyrie.

Cruise stars in the lead as Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg in Valkyrie that is a historical thriller depicting the July 20, 1944, plot by German army officers to assassinate Adolf Hitler.

“Until now, I was working only with actors and not stars but with this movie (Valkyrie), I got to work with a mega star like Tom Cruise. He is down to earth, gets into the story and doesn't let you feel uncomfortable at all because of his status or anything. I loved working with him,” Singer told IANS over phone from Seoul, South Korea.

The film has also been in the news across the world for multiple controversies apart from speculations for Cruise's performance as the Nazi officer.

The director and the actors are on a promotional tour for the assassination thriller across Asia, Europe and America. It is releasing in India Feb 20.
