The 5 Best Tidbits from Tom Cruise's Impromptu Grad Speech

Tom Cruise stopped by the graduation ceremony of the Joanne Baron/D.W. Brown Acting School in California this past weekend to deliver a surprise speech, delighting everyone lucky enough to be in the room (except, perhaps, the poor tenured professor who had been planning for months to speak at commencement).

Cruise has a lot to say in ten minutes, but we've decided the following five tidbits from the speech are the most interesting — or at least entertaining — of all.

1.) He was always interested in "why?"

Becoming a successful actor - or at least, a believable actor - presumably requires an abnormal amount of empathy; Cruise being forever interested in "why?" makes sense, considering his acting pedigree-slash-his interest in weird religions based off of '50s sci-fi novels.

2.) He had saved up money to travel Europe after high school, but used it to move to New York to become an actor instead.
