Tom Cruise Blew Up On Mission Impossible Team!
Cruise Was Displeased With No Covid-19 Precautions
Tom Cruise recently ripped into crew members on the set of his next Mission: Impossible film in London, lambasting them for violating COVID-19 social distancing rules in an explosive rant captured on tape.
Audio obtained by the U.K.’s Sun tabloid captures three minutes of the rant, in which Cruise blasts his crew for their lack of social distancing.
“If you don’t do it, you’re out!” Cruise shouted at staff on the film. “If I see it again, you’re f—ing gone.”
Cruise appeared to be especially irate with group who gathered around a PC on set. He likewise guaranteed that the film is the "highest quality level" for film creation during the pandemic, and that the eventual fate of the business lays on the accomplishment of his creation. “Movies are going because of us,” he said in the expletive-filled audio recording.
“I’m on the phone with every f—ing 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 motherf—ers.”
It's unknown when the tirade happened, however creation on Mission: Impossible 7 continued in London toward the beginning of December. The film had to close down in February while shooting in Venice, similarly as cases were detonating in Italy. Production continued in September in Norway, Italy and London.
During an online interview George Clooney shared what he thought of the headline-making audio.
"He didn't overreact because it is a problem," he told Stern. "I have a friend who's an AD on another TV show who just had the almost exact same thing happen with not quite as far out a response."
While Clooney could understand the gravity of the situation, he also would have handled it differently. "I wouldn't have done it that big. I wouldn't have, you know, pulled people out," he elaborated. "You're in a position of power and it's tricky, right? You do have a responsibility for everybody else and he's absolutely right about that. And, you know, if the production goes down, a lot of people lose their jobs. People have to understand that and have to be responsible. It's just not my style to, you know, to take everybody to task that way."
However, as the multi-talented star pointed out, we're only hearing one part of the story.
"I think it doesn't help necessarily to point to specific people in that way and do it that…but, you know, everybody has their own style. The people who were on that shoot will tell us more about it," he told Stern. "I understand why he did it. He's not wrong at all about that. You know, I just, I don't know that I would have done it quite that personally, but I don't know all the circumstances so maybe he had it 10 or 15 times before."
