Simon Pegg was surprised at how ''normal'' Tom Cruise and his family was when they worked on two 'Mission: Impossible' movies together.
The 'Star Trek' actor starred alongside Tom in 'Mission: Impossible 3' and 'Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol' and he says despite his A-list status he was very grounded as was his wife Katie Holmes and their six-year-old daughter Suri.
Asked what surprised him the most about Tom, Simon replied: ''That he's quite normal, you know, he's a real family man. When Katie and Suri visited the set, they're just like a normal little family and you see them doing normal things. I don't know what I expected them to do. Suri's a very sweet unprecocious little girl, she just does what kids do, she's not walking around in high heels and shouting at people, as some people would have us believe.''
Simon also said the odd ball reputation Tom has is unjustified and was very impressed with how seriously he takes his job.
Speaking on 'Daybreak', Simon said: ''I think the people that have the strongest opinions about him [Tom Cruise] are the people that haven't met him. The fact is he's a guy, he's a human being and that's it. I mean he's incredibly concentrated and he's amazing to work with because he's so collaborative and it means a lot to him that the films are good. That's why he hung off the tallest building, because he wanted people to see that it was him.''
