Tom Cruise has 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.

Tom, 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."

His co-star Olga Kurylenko, in a Marchesa dress and Salvatore Ferragamo heels, had only compliments for her leading man.

"I was nervous about meeting him at first but when I met him, he was so open, kind and welcoming. Tom is a generous partner. And he lights up the room with his energy," she said.

Kosinski, who also directed Tron: Legacy, added: "He is the hardest working man I've ever met."

Morgan Freeman and Andrea Riseborough also star in Oblivion, which opens in cinemas on April 10.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Gemini:

Someone will break a promise to you, which is disappointing. Don't let this setback stop you from crossing the finish line. You may have to submit an entry late or attend the last few minutes of a meeting, but take heart. Rallying in the midst of difficult circumstances will count in your favour. Someone else may get a job or scholarship, but you'll be in the running for the next opportunity. In the meantime, have an alternative plan ready when relying on others for help.More
