​Tom Cruise Breaks His Silence About His Massive Rant On Mission Impossible 7 Set

Tom Cruise has spoken out about his huge rant on the Mission Impossible 7 set - and by the sounds of it, he has no regrets whatsoever.

Towards the end of last year, several staff members reportedly quit the project after Cruise, 58, threatened to sack people for not observing Covid safety guidelines on set.

Now Cruise has broken his silence about the incident, having defended his actions in a new interview with Empire Magazine.

"I said what I said," he told the outlet, explaining that there was 'a surge' in coronavirus cases in England at the time.

He continued: "There was a lot at stake at that point.

"But it wasn't my entire crew. I had the crew leave the set, and it was just select people."

Cruise appeared to suggest that his words thankfully did the trick, adding that filming was 'never shut down again'.

He continued: "And here we are, continuing to film."

Cruise then quipped: "I do Zoom parties and kids' parties also, you know!"

News of his angry rant emerged last December, when audio was released of him shouting at crew for not following social distancing guidelines.

In the audio footage, obtained by The Sun, Cruise can be heard shouting: "If I see you do it again, you're f***ing gone. And if anyone in this crew does it, that's it - and you too and you too.

"And you, don't you ever f***ing do it again."

He'd been ensuring coronavirus regulations were observed during filming, but had lost his temper when he saw two crew members standing closer than two metres to each other.

Evidently unhappy that his plans to keep filming up and running during the pandemic were being put at risk, the audio clip captures him saying: "We want 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! And if you don't do it, you're fired. If I see you do it again, you're f***ing gone. And if anyone in this crew does it - that's it, and you too and you too. And you, don't you ever f***ing do it again.

"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. 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 - and you are - so you're going to cost him his job. If I see it on the set, you're gone and you're gone."

Mission Impossible 7 lands in UK cinemas in May 2022.
