Tom Cruise is reportedly the ultimate perfectionist when it comes to both his work and home life. The 50-year-old movie star allegedly runs an extremely tight ship at his Bel Air mansion. A “well-placed” source told Radar Online that created specific “zones” inside the mansion for staff. Cruise’s employees are allegedly only allowed to enter the zones they are authorized to work in while on the property.
The Tom Cruise mansion is allegedly run with “military” precision and constant attention is paid to meeting security needs. Housekeepers and other domestic support staff are supposedly not allowed to venture into areas which do not relate to the tasks assigned. Essentially, the cooks stay in the kitchen and are not allowed to hang out in others realms inside the actor’s vast California estate.
The source had this to say about the way Cruise runs his home:
“It’s a huge house and Tom does this to ensure the safety of his family and children when they are visiting. The only members of household staff that have access to the entire house are the estate manager and the head of security. When Tom and Katie were married, Tom hired her a personal valet who would take care of wardrobe, scheduling and other needs. Tom also provides and pays for personal valets for his mom and sisters.”
Although the source relayed in detail how strictly the Jack Reacher star monitors the movements of his staff, the individual also notes how generous the star is to his loved ones. When it came time to hire a new estate manager, the process was allegedly very rigorous. All of Tom Cruise’s prospective employees supposedly had to endure “testing” at the Scientology Celebrity Center in Los Angeles, Perez Hilton notes.
The source also had this to say about the hoops Cruise employees must jump through before gaining access to the home and his family:
“The test took an entire afternoon and included questions such as ‘If you saw a car stuck on the train tracks with people inside, and a train approaching, what would you do?’ The questions were just odd to say the least. Another section of the test dealt with math questions. It was a very rigorous, stressful and grueling test.”
