Leaked audio of Tom Cruise giving the crew of Mission: Impossible a dressing down for failing to adhere to Covid-regulations went viral overnight, in which Tom threatens to send people packing if he catches them breaking the rules again.
If Tom’s serious about this, this latest installment of the franchise might see the highest staff turnover yet. The one to beat is the fifth film, Rogue Nation. Over the course of filming, the production went through not one, not two, but seven different limo drivers.
Not because Cruise was being a diva (he was supposedly a superb gent on set). The most likely cause was the director’s wife, whose West End shopping trips caused multiple headaches. Alongside all the parking fines she racked up, she also annoyed drivers to the point of resignation by getting them to wait outside shops for her in the limo, then asking to be driven to the next shop. A few feet down the road.
