Tom Cruise’s absence at the Academy Awards has sparked rumors and conspiracy theories about his reasons for not attending. Despite being nominated for the first time in 23 years, Cruise was a no-show at the ceremony, leading to speculation that he was too busy filming Mission: Impossible elsewhere or was avoiding potential confrontations with his peers.
The latest rumor, originating from an anonymous source and reported in The Daily Mail, suggests that the real reason Cruise didn’t attend was because his ex-wife Nicole Kidman was also going to be there. However, this explanation seems far-fetched, given that the two have been in the same industry for years and have likely attended many events together. Without further evidence to support this claim, it’s best to take it with a grain of salt.
