Tom Cruise has finally addressed * that * Mission impossible set rant – and he has no regrets about it.
Cruise, who plays Ethan Hunt in the action franchise, was recorded berating crew members on the set of Mission: impossible 7 to break the restrictions of the coronavirus (COVID-19).
“If I see you doing it again, you’re f ** king gone,” the actor shouted last year. “And if anyone on this team does, that’s it – and so do you and you too.” And you, don’t f ** king ever do it again.
Now, with the dust settling, Cruise has stood up for his actions. “I said what I said” he said Empire Magazine, explaining that there was “a surge” in COVID-19 cases in England at the time.
