( 4UMF NEWS ) Tom Cruise Flaunts Six Pack:
At nearly 50, Tom Cruise proves he can still rock.
The actor channels his rock ‘n’ roll alter ego, Stacee Jaxx, for the June issue of W magazine, in which he sheds his clean-cut look to transform into the outlandish musician he portrays in this summer’s “Rock of Ages.”
Posing for the photo spread while filming the Adam Shankman musical in Miami last summer, Cruise shows off his six-pack abs and (fake) tattooed body as he’s being sandwiched between two blond groupies.
While he has the guyliner look down, preparing for the role didn’t come so naturally for Cruise.
“I needed to find out if I could really sing!” he tells the magazine. “Ron (Anderson, formerly a vocal coach for Axl Rose) came in and worked with me. And then I had to learn how to play guitar. I’m very good at air guitar—and air drums—but I had never played an actual guitar.”
