Report: Tom Cruise may have been victim of phone-hacking

Hollywood star Tom Cruise has suggested he may be a victim of phone-hacking at the News of the World.

The Daily Telegraph today reports on an interview with Cruise that appeared in Playboy magazine:

During the interview with Playboy magazine, he was reminded of how he called a news channel on the night that Diana, Princess of Wales died, to complain that the intrusiveness of the media had got out of hand.

When the subject moved on to the phone-hacking scandal and he was asked “have you ever been hacked?”, Cruise, 49, replied: “Maybe”.

The actor was asked what he made of “this invasion of privacy” and replied: “I put that in a minor pile of things I have to handle. But with certain ones you have to go ‘Okay, you crossed a line, and now you have the attention of my lawyers’.”

The Telegraph notes out that, if true, it would make Cruise  ‘potentially the highest-profile victim’phone-hacking.
