American actor Tom Cruise got into a rant while on set of Mission Impossible 7. The actor went off after spotting two of the crew standing less than a metre away from each other at a computer screen.
Cruise is heard shouting at members of the production team in London for reportedly violating on-set social distancing guidelines. Cruise stated that he’s under pressure to lead by example of how a movie can shoot safely during the ongoing pandemic.
Audio obtained by The Sun, Cruise can be heard saying: “We are the gold standard. They’re back there in Hollywood making movies right now because of us. Because they believe in us and what we’re doing. I’m on the phone with every studio at night, insurance companies, producers and they’re looking at us and using us to make their movies. We are creating thousands of jobs, you M-F. I don’t ever want to see it again. Ever!”
Fellow actor George Clooney says Tom Cruise is not in the wrong for demanding his crew adhere to strict COVID-19 protocols.
While promoting his new film The Midnight Sky, Clooney, said in an interview with Howard Stern that he doesn’t think Cruise, acted inappropriately.
“Mission: Impossible 7” is directed by Christopher McQuarrie and set for release on Nov. 19, 2021.
