W...

Uncomfortable, and kind of creepy...yup, that pretty much sums up my thoughts on this shoot.  Fronting up as his character from upcoming film, Rock of Ages, Cruise gets down and dirty in a dingy hotel room and shows us why he was a sex God...a decade ago.  Now, one cannot deny how he has maintained his figure, but his public persona of squeaky-clean Scientology dad doesn't marry well to the filthy aging-rockstar image that he has portrayed for W magazine.  Abbey-Lee and Edita Vilkeviciute look gorgeous (albeit nipple-bearing in most shots) but I can't imagine they would have had the best time licking Mr Cruise up and down for the duration of the shoot...weird.  In saying all that however, Mario Sorrento's photography is stunning and I am always a sucker for a dreamy black and white story.  While it may not be everyones cup of tea, the shoot has definitely stirred up some conversation and as they say, there is no such thing as bad publicity...
