Yesterday, audio of Tom Cruise unleashing a foul-mouthed rant about COVID restrictions while on the set of Mission Impossible went viral, and it’s all anyone has been able to talk about since…
Here’s the full story…
His disingenuous persona in interviews alongside the oddly secretive nature of his private life has led many to believe that all is not what it seems with the celebrated actor.
There’s been a fair amount of speculation as to what’s really going on with him…
So much so, in fact, that it’s turned into something of a full-blown conspiracy theory.
And many speculate that a lot of the weirdness in his life can be attributed to his religious beliefs.
The majority of these centers around Cruise’s weird romantic relationships.
Rogers was 6 years Cruise’s senior and the pair often appeared to have little in the way of intimate connection. This led some to speculate that this was more of a marriage of convenience.
He met fellow actress, Nicole Kidman, on the set of Days of Thunder and the pair married just ten months after his first divorce had been finalized.
Kidman and Cruise adopted 2 children, Connor and Isabella, during their brief marriage.
Just look at this photo – it seems almost as though Nicole Kidman is a husk of her former self. She looks exhausted and empty. Life with Cruise sure doesn’t look easy.
These images of Nicole Kidman leaving her lawyer’s office after filing for divorce from Tom Cruise speak volumes.
The Church of Scientology knuckled down with finding the actor a new love interest, and there are even claims that the whole thing was like an audition.
Girls were allegedly shipped in and tested for their qualifications to be a good Scientologist partner for Cruise.
Well, it was the young and aspiring actress, Katie Holmes.
But, right from the beginning, some noticed the same odd body language that Cruise had previously displayed with his ex-wives.
(For those who don’t remember, Cruise was interviewed by Oprah and jumped on his sofa in one of the most unconvincing displays of love of all time.)
Just 7 months after the pair revealed that they were dating, they proudly displayed Katie’s baby bump.
Of course, there are those who believe that Holmes was pregnant before Cruise came into her life – but, again, that’s another story.
Much of her birth story was kept a secret – but there was that famous Vanity Fair cover shot by Annie Leibovitz.
Details that were leaked (such as Holmes reportedly having to remain totally silent throughout the labor) were as weird as the world expected.
In fact, Holmes apparently blindsided Cruise by filing for divorce from the actor in 2012 just 5 years after tying the knot.
Mission Impossible 2 co-star, Thandie Newton, recently spoke out about the horrific experience she endured while working with him.
“He was a very dominant individual.”
“He takes on a lot. And I think he has this sense that only he can do everything as best as it can be done,” she revealed.
“But if you actually look at his actions, they’re not consistent.”
“He can’t keep a marriage together, he’s jumping on couches, he’s acting like he knows anything about postpartum. I learned pretty quickly that that’s not something you should be doing, because Tom Cruise is considered a messiah in Scientology.”
“This is a man who has not even seen his own daughter in years… That this guy can be running around and having people think he’s this super-nice guy, I don’t get it. But that’s the Hollywood bulls**t game people play.”
But this week, while filming for Mission Impossible 7 in the U.K, Cruise seems to have accidentally let his true colors show.
However, the same can’t be said for the rest of the crew.
According to reports, Cruise got riled up by the film crew when he spotted them huddling together by a screen.
He then yelled:
“We are the gold standard. They’re back there in Hollywood making movies right now because of us. Because they believe in us and what we’re doing. I’m on the phone with every f***ing studio at night, insurance companies, producers and they’re looking at us and using us to make their movies. We are creating thousands of jobs, you motherf***ers. I don’t ever want to see it again. Ever!”
“You can tell it to the people who are losing their f***ing homes because our industry is shut down,” he continued. “It’s not going to put food on their table or pay for their college education. That’s what I sleep with every night – the future of this f***ing industry!
“So I’m sorry, I am beyond your apologies. I have told you, and now I want it, and if you don’t do it, you’re out. We are not shutting this f***ing movie down! Is it understood? If I see it again, you’re f***ing gone.”
Production only started back up a few weeks ago, and Cruise is clearly nervous that things could easily get shut down again.
“Am I clear? Do you understand what I want? Do you understand the responsibility that I have? Because I will deal with your reason, and if you can’t be reasonable and I can’t deal with your logic, you’re fired,” Cruise continued. “That’s it. That is it. I trust you guys to be here.”
And many people actually applauded the actor for taking a stand against the flouting of COVID regulations.
However, not everyone has taken to it too kindly…
As it has been reported today that 5 crew members from the set of Mission Impossible have resigned.
As per The Sun, they said this:
“The first outburst was big but things haven’t calmed since. Tension has been building for months and this was the final straw. Since it became public there has been more anger and several staff have walked.”
“But Tom just can’t take any more after all the lengths they have gone to just to keep filming at all. He’s upset others aren’t taking it as seriously as him. In the end, he’s the one who carries the can.”
