Tom Cruise Aliens: 'Oblivion' Actor Wants To Travel To Space, Meet Extraterrestrials [INTERVIEW VIDEO]
Did the upcoming Tom Cruise aliens movie "Oblivion" trigger a newfound thirst for adventure within the veteran actor?
The "Oblivion" science fiction flick takes place after aliens had invaded planet Earth. 60 years later, Tom Cruise plays a veteran officer assigned to extract the remaining resources found on Earth.
Speaking during a panel discussion during "Oblivion's" Moscow premiere, Tom Cruise not only told the press that humans are not the only intelligent life forms in our universe, Cruise intends to participate in space travel in order to meet the extraterrestrials as well.

"I don't think you can actually count it out," answered Tom Cruise when a reporter asked whether life on other planets exists. "It might be a little arrogant to think we were the only ones in all the galaxies throughout the universe - but I've never met one!"
Tom Cruise's belief in the existence of aliens is very interesting as it directly correlates to his religion of Scientology. In fact, one of the Church of Scientology's core beliefs claim that a "Galactic Confederacy" dictator named Xeno sent billions of frozen souls onto space ships more than 75 billion years ago. These souls would eventually enter into human bodies as hosts.
Beyond the belief of extraterrestrial existence, Tom Cruise also voices his belief in the human endeavor. Is Tom Cruise looking to becoming an astronaut? The 50-year-old actor expresses his interest to visit space.
"Who wouldn't want to do something like that? I'm going to let a couple of other people test it out first but it would be great. I was always hoping when I was a kid that we would be travelling to different planets by now," said Tom Cruise.
