Tom Cruise loses his cool yet again and threatens the ‘Mission: Impossible 7’ crew – will the MI franchise be able to keep up with Tom’s anger issues?
The latest leaked audio clip from the sets of ‘Mission: Impossible 7’ has revealed Tom Cruise yelling at the crew members and threatening to fire them. While the detailed reports address the reason behind this hot-headed act of the ‘Top Gun: Maverick’ star, it’s not the first time people have witnessed Tom Cruise losing his cool. There have been various such instances on the sets of previous Mission: Impossible movies, in various interviews, and also in his personal life, where the actor has shown his less composed side. However, this increases the volatility in the franchise and raises some eyebrows regarding the future of the ‘Mission Impossible’ franchise led by Tom Cruise.

Tom Cruise lost his mind on the ‘Mission: Impossible 7’ sets? The actor is known to have done this various times before.
Tom Cruise abuses the crew on the sets of ‘Mission: Impossible 7’
“If I see you do it again, you’re fucking gone”, yelled Tom Cruise at the crew members of ‘Mission: Impossible 7’. As first posted by “The Sun”, and then also confirmed by “Variety”, Tom Cruise was caught threatening and yelling at two crew members on the sets of MI7.
To note, the reason behind this hot-headed act of the actor was that he found two members breaking the COVID-19 guidelines. Reports reveal two team members were standing within two meters of each other near a computer when Cruise spotted them.
In the leaked audio clip obtained by “The Sun”, Tom can be heard yelling:
“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**king studio at night, insurance companies, producers. They’re looking at us and using us to make their movies. We are creating thousands of jobs, you m***********s. I don’t ever want to see it again. Ever!”
It seemed that Cruise was concerned about the possibilities of people associated with the movie suffering if it gets halted again due to the pandemic.
“That’s it. No apologies. You can tell it to the people that are losing their f***ing homes because our industry is shut down.”
“We are not shutting this f***ing movie down. Is it understood? If I see it again, you’re f***ing gone.”
Tom Cruise and his hot-headed history
While Tom Cruise is known to be a very composed and extremely responsible actor, he has had hot-headed instances or blunders which have affected his image in the past.
In the young years of Tom Cruise’s career, when the actor was filming for ‘The Outsiders’ with Robe Lowe, they both broke into a fight. During a fight scene rehearsal, Lowe hit Cruise in the face a bit too hard. The agitated Tom responded with a real punch that started a real fight on the sets.
Back in 2005, when Tom Cruise appeared on ‘The Oprah Winfrey Show’, the actor gave one of the most polarizing moments on any such talk show. Tom was no less of a big Hollywood star with two Mission Impossible movies and ‘Top Gun’ under his belt. And Oprah was the biggest talk show host. It was as if Cruise was under some weird influence, he acted weirdly throughout the show.
At one moment, when Oprah took Tom’s then girlfriend’s name, he stood up and jumped on the couch. This behaviour of Cruise gave birth to one of the most hilariously iconic moments and also resulted in him losing a 14-year-old working relationship with Paramount Pictures.
Tom Cruise’s bizarre comments on Brooke Shields taking medication to manage postpartum depression also resulted in him losing a good share of the female fan-base.
It’s reported that several Hollywood A-listers resent Tom Cruise for a number of things including his ties to Scientology. Tom Cruise is also criticized for the failure of several movies like ‘The Mummy’ (2017). Many claims that he tries to interfere too much with other people’s work, which sometimes turns wrong for the movies.
Cruise ensuring safety on MI7 sets
Tom Cruise’s rant on the sets of ‘Mission: Impossible 7’ can be seen in many ways. But as per a source, the actor is taking every possible step to make sure everyone’s safe. A source told “The Sun”:
“Tom has taken it upon himself, along with the health and safety department, to try to force the safety precautions, with a view to keeping the film running.”
“He does daily rounds to make sure that everything is set up appropriately, that people are behaving and working as safely as they can. He is very proactive when it comes to safety.”
‘Mission: Impossible 7’ was halted during the filming early this year when 12 crew members were found infected with Covid-19. The movie was one of the first in the line to resume the filming when the restrictions eased.
Thus, Tom Cruise’s concerns regarding the safety on the sets of ‘Mission: Impossible 7’ can be reasoned. However, the actor abusing and threatening the crew highlights his anger management issues from the past, and they can turn out to be extremely fatal for the future of the MI franchise.
