After turning the ripe old age of 50 last week, the actor appears to be of weaker bladder.
Either that or he was feeling a little unwell as he made three dashes to the toilet in the space of 20 minutes on the set of Oblivion yesterday.

Tom is understood to have not seen Suri since Katie filed for divorce, but speaks to her regularly over the phone.
The pair reached a divorce settlement
earlier this week and Katie has reportedly made it clear that she is
turning her back on Scientology and returning to Catholicism by signing up
to a local church in New York.
But according to Star magazine, Tom
still plans to keep Suri involved in his religion, despite reports Katie
wants to keep her away from the controversial organization.

Both Connor and Isabella are devout Scientology followers, which has put a strain on their relationship with their mother, Nicole Kidman.
Tom filed for divorce from Nicole in 2001 after 11 years of marriage.
The split had a profound effect on her relationship with their two adopted children.
Nicole, who now also has two young daughters with her new husband Keith Urban, has hinted at her heartbreak over the distance between them.
She said in 2010: 'They live with Tom, which was their choice. I'd love them to live with us but what can you do.'
Isabella revealed earlier this year that she only sees her mother 'sometimes'.
American magazine Us Weekly today reported that the 33-year-old sought counsel from Nicole, 45, in an effort to avoid the same fate as the Australian actress, who now rarely sees the teens.
