Tom Cruise Says His Phone Might Have Been Hacked, Vows Revenge

The Daily Mail is reporting that in an interview with Playboy, Tom Cruise says that his voicemails might have been hacked, which would easily make him the most high profile celebrity associated with the scandal.

During the interview, Cruise was asked about the News Corp. misconduct:

The night Princess Diana died you called CNN to talk about how the intrusiveness of the press had gotten out of hand. This phone-hacking scandal on Fleet Street has closed one major newspaper and reached all the way to Rupert Murdoch. Have you ever been hacked?

Cruise replied, “Maybe,” and didn’t elaborate any further. However, because he is Tom Cruise, he didn’t hesitate to get a little crazy when discussing what he would do to the hackers. “There’s one thing you know with a bully,” Cruise explained. “I don’t care how big or mean they are. There are different ways to do it… but sometimes just confronting them works.”

You have officially been put on notice, Rupert Murdoch.
