Oyelowo liked being around Cruise

David Oyelowo says Tom Cruise is still totally enthusiastic about making films

David Oyelowo has revealed that Tom Cruise had a "child-like enthusiasm" on the set of Jack Reacher.

The British actor admitted that working alongside the Hollywood superstar in Christopher McQuarrie's big-screen adaptation of Lee Child's novel One Shot was a joy.

"The man is just that - a man. He's a great guy. He loves movies and making movies and he's rare," he said.

"Thirty years of being a movie star hasn't ruined him in any way at all. In fact, he has a child-like enthusiasm for what we get to do. He is completely untarnished and that is something I just loved being around."

David admitted that he didn't know about the best-selling books before he signed up for the role of Detective Emerson.

"I wasn't aware that there were 17 of them. I wasn't aware that there were many millions of people who love the books, which is a good thing actually," he said.

Rosamund Pike, Robert Duvall and Richard Jenkins also star in Jack Reacher, which opens in cinemas on Boxing Day (December 26).
