AceShowbiz - Having a run-in with Tom Cruise isn't always a pleasant experience, at least for Jenny Agutter. In a new interview, the actress claimed that the Hollywood star keeps disrupting the filming of BBC's "Call the Midwife".
According to Jenny, who plays Sister Julienne on the drama, Tom flew his helicopter over the "Midwife" set in Surrey, England, causing quite ruckus while the cast attempted to shoot scenes. Tom appeared to be filming "Mission: Impossible - Dead Reckoning Part Two" in the town.
When asked if she would give Tom a talking-to about his allegedly rude chopper habits, the "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" actress replied, "In my habit! Imagine. 'Excuse me, Tom, but look, we're trying to film. I don't know about you, but just get your helicopter out of here quickly!' "
Neither Tom nor his representative has yet to respond to the claims.
Tom, who has a pilot license, is no stranger to doing his own stunts in his movies. Detailing his obsession with risk-taking, the 60-year-old actor shared at this year's Cannes Film Festival, "I always thought there's something that I can do and I wanted to push the art form. I thought, 'How can I immerse an audience into a movie with this kind of action? And how can I entertain them? What can I do?' "
Earlier this year, he landed on the latest "Mission: Impossible" set in his own helicopter and flew himself to the "Top Gun: Maverick" premiere. The actor is also set to be the first actor to shoot a movie in outer space. "I think Tom Cruise is taking us to space, he's taking the world to space," Universal Filmed Entertainment Group Chairman Donna Langley said, according to BBC News. "That's the plan. We have a great project in development with Tom … Taking a rocket up to the Space Station and shooting."
Of Tom's character, Donna said, "He will play a down-on-his-luck guy who finds himself in the position of being the only person who could save Earth." Doug Liman is set to direct the film that also involves Elon Musk's SpaceX and NASA.
