Nadia Sawalha has spoken out in defence of Tom Cruise after the actor allegedly screamed at his film crew for breaking social distancing rules on set.
An audio clip claimed to be of Tom shouting at workers on the set of Mission: Impossible 7 surfaced in The Sun this week, in which he allegedly threatened to fire those who continue to break the rules.
The actor, 58, is said to have been enraged after spotting crew members not adhering to social distancing after the production has previously had to be shut down due to people testing positive for coronavirus in the past.
While some were shocked at the tone of voice and swearwords Tom used, Nadia defended the actor for being frustrated amid the ongoing pandemic.
She said on Loose Women: ‘I’m trying to be a lot less judgey about everything, I’m just trying to change that in myself.
‘And I think as Linda [Robson] says, through Covid, we’re all more frayed than we would be normally.
‘Of course it’s not the right way to talk to people and if he’s doing that consistently then that’s something else.
‘But we are human and sometimes we lose our temper and we behave inappropriately, it’s what we do afterwards that’s important.’
Tom, who plays Ethan Hunt in the franchise and also produces the movie, has pulled out all the stops to ensure that production on Mission: Impossible 7 can continue after months of delays due to the pandemic.
In a leaked tape, the actor was heard yelling: ‘I’m on the phone with every f**king 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 motherf**kers. I don’t ever want to see it again, ever! And if you don’t do it you’re fired, if I see you do it again you’re f**king 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**king do it again. That’s it! No apologies.
‘You can tell it to the people that are losing their f**king 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 f**king industry! 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 f**king movie down! Is it understood?’
