In his latest film, “American Made,” Tom Cruise regularly flashes his bare rear end as part of a running gag, and that led people to ask a question that’s been on his fans’ minds for some time now … does the action star use a prosthetic butt?

In Cruise’s 2008 film, “Valkyrie,” there’s a freeze frame shot of Cruise getting up from a pile of rubble that has left moviegoers wondering whether the actor did a lot of squats to get ready for the role or if he was packing some extra padding in his trousers. When asked by Screen Rant about the posterior speculation, Cruise said he had never heard about this before and assured everyone that no prosthetics were used in “Valkyrie.”

He also told Screen Rant that when you see him moon everyone in “American Made,” there’s no prosthetics there either.

“It’s me. It’s not CGI, it’s me. I do my own mooning in films. So let it be known, I do my own mooning.”

Tom Cruise does his own mooning. Duly noted.

“American Made” hits theaters this Friday.
