Mary J Blige: Tom Cruise 'can do anything'

Friday August 12, 2011

Tom Cruise doesn't need any coaching from Mary J Blige, the singer has said.

The Grammy-winning songstress stars alongside the Hollywood actor in the big-screen adaptation of Broadway musical Rock Of Ages.

But she hasn't been tempted to offer Tom singing lessons.

"I think we have a singing scene together - all of us. I don't have to coach Tom.

"He actually sounds really good. He can do anything," she told Collider.

Tom plays bad boy rocker Stacee Jaxx in the musical film, while Mary has been cast as club owner Justice Charlier.

"That's going to be fun ... I play a Gentleman's Club owner," she continued.

"I have to put together who she is. Does she have struggles? Is she going through things? Is she the person that's always bubbly and strong, but with the most problems?

"That's the inner work. So, I have an acting coach and I'm reading books on acting."
