Christian Bale and Tom Cruise’s On-Set:
It’s time we dive deep into Tom Cruise’s fits once again, but this time it is nothing like the previous time. Earlier, while shooting Mission Impossible 7, the crew member had to get the short end of the stick as Tom Cruise let out his anger over breaking the social-distancing protocols. Two of the crew members were standing less than a meter away at the computer screen, and Tom Cruise flew into an absolute rage and let it all out. While many fans appreciated what he said, some of the fans complained about his approach to the situation.
An audiotape captured Cruise 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.” Tom Cruise, 58, went on to say, “They’re back there in Hollywood making movies right now because of us. “We are creating thousands of jobs, you mother***ers. 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.”
But now, fans are finding their way around these rants and as a new hilarious edit, we see Tom’s COVID rant and Bale’s on-set temper tantrum. A new video posted by The Goat Movie Podcast cuts the two meltdowns together, and the video finds Bale returning Cruise’s yelling, with Bale appearing to fire back at the actor as he yells at crew members. Hilariously, the argument sounds real, with Bale’s audio lining up perfectly with Cruise’s own yelling. The edit finds Bale asking for Cruise to be removed from the set in a perfect bit of Hollywood meltdowns transcending time to be eerily similar.
This all comes with the fact that even though these rants and meltdowns are pretty common, it also seems that the actors need to calm down a bit. Quite frankly, no one should treat their employees like that, especially when in positions of power like the one Cruise holds. Even though in the recording, Cruise eventually calmed down and rationally made his point, the anger remains. The setbacks that the global pandemic is very clear on the film industry and mental health has taken a massive hit.
Mission Impossible 7’s massive production, which encompasses multiple countries, has faced its own delays because of COVID and Tom Cruise is largely responsible for getting it back off the ground, so much so that the actor even went on to buy a cruise ship so that the crew can isolate together.
Let us know what you think of this hilarious edit because it has started growing on us.
