Tom Cruise (sort of) nearly killed Simon Pegg with pranks
SURPRISING BEZZIES ALERT!
Simon Pegg and Tom Cruise had tons of #ladbantz while filming Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation together, to the point that Si “nearly died” from one of Tom’s crazy pranks.
While filming in intense heat in Casablanca, Morocco (poor them), Tom started making sure Simon was even hotter!
Speaking to Yahoo!, Simon said: “Tom kept putting the heater in my seat on and was heating me up for a joke. I nearly died. ”
Simon didn’t take this
attempted murder prank lying down however, and decided to take matters into his own hands. Banter.
He continued: “I eventually realised what he was doing then it became a little war and then I put tape over the light so he couldn’t see if his was on.”
Simon also spoke about his Mission Impossible character Benji who he said has turned into a “badass”.
He said: “Benji’s gone from being a guy in the lab to being a super-secret agent. I’m a bit of a badass chasing Ethan’s tail…but not in that way”.
Tommy C was also on the red carpet, swarmed by fans who’d queued outside the Opera House, in Covent Garden. You’d hope so, with him being the main man and all.
The Hollywood star looked fab in a suit and actually took the time to stop and pose for selfies with his fans. SUCH A NICE GUY!
Tom - who does his own stunts, Fact Fans - also admitted he was “scared s***less” filming a scene, in which he’s strapped to the side of the plane. Well, wouldn’t we all be?
He explained: “(Mission Impossible screenwriter) Chris McQuarrie said, ‘What do you think about hanging on the outside of this airplane?’ and I said, ‘yeah that sounds fun I’ve always wanted to do something like that’.
“As we’re taking off, I see Simon Pegg is over there and then this thing starts going down the runway and I had a hard time keeping my feet and the adrenaline got going and I felt scared s***less.”
We still love you Tom, and, clearly, so does Simon Pegg!
