Tom Cruise's production deal turned out to be mission impossible. Which is no surprise now, considering it turns out that the studio holding the cards frowns on couch-jumping.

The Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday that Paramount Pictures has decided to not continue its partnership with Hollywood's most powerful celebrity, citing his recent off-camera conduct as the main reason it had for discontinuing the 14-year relationship.

"As much as we like him personally, we thought it was wrong to renew his deal," the big cheese himself, Viacom Chairman Sumner Redstone, told the Journal. "His recent conduct has not been acceptable to Paramount."
