Tom Cruise 'Not Embarrassed By Topless Scenes' As He Premieres 'Oblivion' In UK With Olga Kurylenko

Hollywood star Tom Cruise revealed he has no qualms about going topless on screen, despite his age.

The 'Mission: Impossible' actor, who celebrated his 50th birthday last July, bares his top half in his latest film, sci-fi epic 'Oblivion'.

"I don't get embarrassed, I just do it," he said at the film's UK premiere at London's BFI Imax.

No embarrassment here... for Tom Cruise, at the UK premiere of sci-fi film 'Oblivion'

Cruise, who plays Jack Harper in Joseph Kosinski's film, said he has no plans to retire from the screen in the near future.

"I've been offered a number of times to (direct). But I love acting and I enjoy the process of working with the director," he said.

"I started producing films just because of my love of it and I wanted to create stories that they weren't making. So no, but I will act for the rest of my life."
