Here’s a little nugget of information we didn’t know we needed – Tom Cruise isn’t keen on letting anyone run onscreen with him.
The 58-year-old is very, very adept at sprinting and apparently, he doesn’t want to share scenes with anyone who can’t keep up with his pace.
Tbf, as the man who famously does all his own stunts – from landing helicopters to skydiving – we can kind of understand his pickiness.
But Cruisey did make an exception for one star – Peaky Blinders alum Annabelle Wallis made the cut after he clocked her superior running skills on the treadmill.
The 35-year-old actress got to race with Tom in the 2017 movie The Mummy.
‘He’s on a different level, and, you know, I ticked a box. I got to run on-screen with him, but he told me no at first,’ Annabelle told The Hollywood Reporter.
The British actress went on: ‘He said, “Nobody runs on-screen [with me],” and I said, “But I’m a really good runner.”
‘So, I would time my treadmill so that he’d walk in and see me run. And then he added all these running scenes. So, that was it. It was, like, better than an Oscar. I was so happy!’
Tom’s been keeping busy filming Mission Impossible 7, with production resuming last month after being halted by the coronavirus pandemic.
However, filming was stopped on Tuesday after a stuntman’s motorbike burst into flames, causing damage to the £2 million set.
A bike stunt from a ramp was ‘miscalculated’, resulting in the motorbike catching fire, The Sun reported.
The stuntman was reportedly supposed to land on pillows padded with card, while the bike crashed to the ground a few metres away.
‘The heat and the friction of the tyres meant that when the bike crashed, the cardboard padding sparked and went up in flames,’ a source said.
‘The smoke was so bad they had to close a nearby RAF airfield.’
‘Fortunately, nobody was hurt but it’s a total catastrophe, not to mention extremely expensive for all concerned. Tom is very frustrated. Nobody wants more delays.’
It is believed the set has been temporarily closed while producers find out what went wrong in the stunt.
Mission: Impossible 7’s release date has already been pushed back from July 2021 to November.
