Tom Cruise goes mad at film crew for not following Covid-19 precautions in leaked audio
"We are not shutting this fucking movie down!"
Audio has leaked of Tom Cruise getting angry at crew members on the set of Mission: Impossible 7 for breaking coronavirus protocols.
According to Variety, Cruise became frustrated after two crew members were standing too close to each other near a computer screen.
"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," shouts Tom Cruise in the audio clip released by the Sun.
"I’m on the phone with every fucking 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 motherfuckers. I don’t ever want to see it again. Ever!"

Cruise went on to tell them that their behaviour was threatening people's jobs.
"You can tell it to the people who are losing their fucking 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 fucking industry!" Cruise continued.
"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 fucking movie down! Is it understood? If I see it again, you’re fucking gone."
"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. That’s it. That is it. I trust you guys to be here."
Mission: Impossible 7 is currently filming in the UK. Production on the film in Italy was previously halted in October, after 12 people on the set tested positive for coronavirus.
