An audio clip of actor Tom Cruise yelling at crew members on the set of Mission Impossible 7 has leaked. Cruise lost his cool after noticing a gap in social distancing on set and threatened to fire those alleged rule violations.
The tirade – lasting about two minutes – was first published by The Sun, and you can listen to it here. The report notes that the actor, who is also a producer on the Mission Impossible franchise, spotted two crew members next to each other near a computer monitor.
“We are the gold standard,” you can hear screaming in the leaked clip. “Right now they went back to Hollywood to make movies thanks to us. Because they believe in us and what we are doing. They are on the phone to every f ** king studio at night, insurance companies, producers and they watch us and use us to make their movies. We are creating thousands of jobs, m *********** s. I never want to see him again. Never!”

He continued, “You can tell people that they are losing their fucking homes because our industry is closed. It won’t put food on their table or pay for their college education. This is what I sleep with every night: the future of this. fucking industry! So I’m sorry, I’m beyond your apology. I told you, and now I want it, and if you don’t, you’re out. We’re not going to close this fucking movie! Is that understood? If I see it again, you’re gone. “
“Am I clear? Do you understand what I want? Do you understand the responsibility I have? Because I will deal with your reason, and if you can’t be reasonable and I can’t handle your logic, you are fired,” Cruise continued. “That’s it. That’s it. I trust you guys are here.”
