Tom Cruise is not a fan of British actor Alex Pettyfer. Who knew?!?
Apparently Alex has been a bad influence on Tom’s son Connor after the teenager became friends with the hard partying actor. Reportedly, Tom thinks that Alex’s vulgarness and his poor temper will rub off on his young son.
A source said, “Tom is a hands-on dad, and he’s begging Connor to replace Alex with more respectable friends. Connor hasn’t gotten into any serious trouble yet, but Tom lives in fear that his son is one step away from an embarrassing scandal. He’s smoking cigarettes, courting hot models and partying into the wee hours of the morning.”
The source went on to say, “It’s definitely not the lifestyle a squeaky-clean guy like Tom Cruise approves of for his son. Tom is very close with Connor and supports his career, but he’s warning him that Alex is liable to pull him down. Tom’s worst nightmare would be having one of his kids go down the same path as Lindsay Lohan or Miley Cyrus. He’s crossing his fingers that Connor gives Alex the heave-ho.”
Will a teenager ever listen to their parents? Our guess is no — what’s yours?
