Cruise: 'I Don't Want An Oscar'

Screen hunk TOM CRUISE has never wanted an OSCAR, because winning awards has nothing to do with the serious craft of acting.

The MINORITY REPORT actor, 42, has been nominated for three ACADEMY AWARDS during his illustrious career - but has not yet won a statuette.

However, Cruise claims the coveted honour is meaningless to him, and he has never taken any role because he thought it would win him one.

He says, "I didn't grow up watching the Oscars, so it's never been a goal.

"I wanted to act. People have tried to get me to do a role by saying, 'This is your Oscar.'

"That means nothing to me.'
