The "Top Gun" icon candidly remarked, “I don’t necessarily sleep in the traditional sense. It feels more like I momentarily go unconscious.” For Cruise, the early hours of dawn have always held a certain allure. He confided, “I have a penchant for welcoming the day at its earliest and bidding it farewell just as early. My professional commitments often mean a grueling schedule, not to mention the intense physical demands of my roles.”
