We all know Tom Cruise as the sexy hero who jumps off buildings to beat bad guys. Now we can also know him as the defender of COVID-19 protocols.
Halfway through filming a scene in Rome, Tom Cruise gave a loud and long rant at crew members on the set of “Mission: Impossible 7” over a breach of Covid-19 protocols.
In the now viral clip, Cruise was heard to be yelling, “We are creating thousands of jobs,” and he further threatens the crew with, “I don’t ever want to see it again! Ever! And if you don’t do it, you’re fired!”
It is understandable that Tom Cruise would get so worked up upon spotting two crew members standing together at a computer screen. This happens to be in violation of an on-set rule requiring people to stand about six feet apart.

The pandemic has taken its toll in the movie’s production before. In February, filming was put to a halt in Venice, Italy, amid a raging coronavirus outbreak there. Production has since resumed beginning September, and has moved between Italy, Norway and Britain.
