Last night audio was released online which purported to be the sound of actor Tom Cruise absolutely going ballistic at a pair of crew members on the set of Mission: Impossible 7 who were not properly following COVID-19 guidelines.
Cruise gets loud, he gets vulgar, and he gets threatening, promising to fire anybody who flouts the rules further. Needless to say, when a major celebrity, and there are few bigger, gets heard like this, people are going to respond, and social media has basically exploded with opinions. Some love Cruise for this, some are thoroughly unimpressed, and some are just having a good time.
A lot of people are questioning the authenticity of the recording. To them, it feels like the whole thing might have actually been more planned and not so much of a leak. It seems like a performance. Of course, it’s possible that’s because it does sort of sound like a performance that Tom Cruise has actually given before. You can sort of see Les Grossman being the won delivering this entire rant.
