mission impossible rogue nation image

I bow to you Mr Cruise, a chameleon of recovery that constantly cops shit but rises from the ashes like a phoenix time and time again.

OBLIVION, EDGE OF TOMORROW (aka LIVE, DIE REPEAT) and now this piece of bloody brilliance, ...

TRAINWRECK | REVIEW

TRAINWRECK MOVIE IMAGE

From what I have been hearing she is from some really cool TV shows and she is a crass, foul-mouthed, party-girl who is absolutely hysterical!
