Tom Cruise caught on tape ranting at "Mission: Impossible" crew for not following COVID-19 safety protocols


An audio recording of Tom Cruise ranting at crew members on the set of the latest "Mission: Impossible" movie in London has gone viral. The actor, who is also producing the film, was recorded while yelling at the crew for not following COVID-19 protocols.

Sources close to the production told Reuters and Variety that the audio, which first obtained by The Sun, is authentic.

On the recording, which has been widely shared on social media, Cruise addresses two people he apparently saw standing too close to each other, in violation of social distancing rules.
"If I see you do it again you're fing gone," Cruise says. The expletive-filled recording goes on for three and a half minutes.
"We are the gold standard," he says. "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!"

Many industries have been effected by COVID-19, and while film production is now being allowed with safety restrictions in place in many cities, it was initially put on hold at the start of the pandemic.
