Jon Gruden Reveals The Star Actor He Thinks Makes Bad Movies. It’s Mind-Blowing

David Hookstead | Reporter

Oakland Raiders coach Jon Gruden is apparently not a big fan of Tom Cruise.

Gruden told NBC Sports the following when asked about his reported $100 million contract:

I’m not making $100 million, just so you know. Well, I never thought Tom Cruise — never thought his movies were any good — but he’s making plenty of money. There’s a lot of things that I don’t understand. No disrespect to Tom Cruise. I’m sure he’s a great actor. But you know what? You just go about your life as hard as you can. You try to find something you love and you do the best you can at it. I never got into coaching for the money. I got into coaching because I wanted to be a quarterback coach. What the salary cap has become, what free agency has become—it’s amazing.

This is actually extremely surprising to me. If there was one actor I figured Gruden would have loved, it would have been Cruise. The fact he doesn’t like “Mission: Impossible” films is honestly kind of ruining my day. I don’t want to live in a world where Gruden isn’t chugging beers and munching on popcorn as he wants Ethan Hunt kills bad guys. What about “Top Gun”? How does Gruden not love Cruise in a movie like that? (RELATED: JON GRUDEN WON’T TAKE RAIDERS’ MONEY IF HE LOSES)

Don’t get me wrong here, I still love Gruden. The man is an absolute legend in the game. He’s awesome, and I hope he coaches forever.

This has honestly ruined my day. Hell, it might have ruined my whole month. If you had asked me if I thought Gruden and Cruise would be fans of each other, I would have bet a billion dollars the answer would be yes.

Sometimes you learn that life isn’t all roses and rainbows. Sometimes you find out the harsh realities of this cold dark world. That’s what happened today, and it’s just tragic.
