Whatever you do, don’t take off your mask around Tom Cruise.
Yesterday, nearly 3 minutes of audio was obtained by The Sun, of an irate Tom Cruise cussing out crew members on the set of Mission Impossible 7. The reason being, a few of them were breaking COVID-19 protocols.
“If I see you do it again, you’re f***ing gone. And if anyone in this crew does it, that’s it,” he said.
“They’re back there in Hollywood making movies right now because of us. We are creating thousands of jobs, you motherf***ers,” Cruise yelled. “That’s it. No apologies. You can tell it to the people that are losing their f***ing homes because our industry is shut down.”
Cruise, who also serves as the film’s producer, is concerned that a COVID-19 outbreak onset could further delay production. It would be a catastrophic blow to an industry that is already teetering due to movie theaters being closed across the nation. Production for the film had already been delayed in February due to outbreaks while filming in Italy.
