Tom Cruise private jets his gym kit around the world

TOM Cruise reportedly charters private jets to take his gym kit around the world with him.

The Hollywood icon ensures he can stay in shape while shooting movies by using private planes to fly his fitness gear to his next destination the day before he arrives.

A source told The Sun on Sunday newspaper: "Working out is really important to Tom and he likes to have his own equipment with him so he can exercise in private.

"It might seem extravagant but for an A-lister of his stature, hiring a private jet is like the rest of us hailing a taxi."

Meanwhile, Tom's good friend Victoria Beckham revealed earlier this year how she called on the actor to help motivate her own staff.

The 42-year-old fashion designer was once working hard on a new collection when her friend - who famously played aviator Lieutenant Pete 'Maverick' Mitchell in iconic 1986 movie 'Top Gun' - paid a visit to her office and spent quality time with all of her employees.

She recalled: "So I was working on a collection and all the mood boards were up - and my team is in the room with me - and all of a sudden there was a knock on the door and Tom walks in, all in black with a pair of aviators, and he stands legs apart and his hands on his hips.

"He basically came as Maverick. He spent such a long time with every single person, whether it was the design team, e-com, marketing and he spoke to all of the seamstresses."
