Hollywood hunk Tom Cruise was horrified when a building was covered in black canvas so people wouldn't see him walk from his trailer to the MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE 3 set - and immediately ordered its removal.

The actor was stunned when he discovered the Paramount Pictures building opposite Soundstage 17 had been hidden by a large curtain, and immediately cut short criticisms of his superstar ego, by cheering when the material was removed.

His publicist sister LEE ANNE DEVETTE tells gossip website PageSix.com, "Thank you for letting us know about this. The tarps are coming down. Tom didn't ask for this, and when he found out about it, he asked that they be taken down."

She added, after the canvas had been removed, "We were all cheering. Thank you very much."
