Piers Morgan did a pretty spot on impression of Tom Cruise’s epic rant on-set of Mission: Impossible 7 on Good Morning Britain, while expressing his concerns that the actor is ‘on the edge’.
An audio clip has emerged of Tom, 58, screaming at crew on the set at Warner Bros. Studios in Leavesden, Hertfordshire after finding they broke strict coronavirus rules put in place for their health and safety.
During the expletive-filled rant, Tom called them ‘motherf*****s’ and warned ‘if he sees it again, they’re f***ing gone’.
Of course, Piers couldn’t help but mock the Hollywood star and broke out into a faux rant at GMB staff shouting: ‘Don’t ever let me see it again!’
Discussing the shocking incident, Piers said on Wednesday: ‘Good luck to Tom Cruise because when you go after the crew, they are a vengeful bunch.
‘They can take down anyone in this business so I wish Tom Cruise all the best.’
Susanna Reid somewhat sympathised with Tom in light of the rise in coronavirus cases across the UK and said: ‘He’s trying to make a very important point which is about social distancing and if we can’t have a Covid-secure environment at work, we cannot carry on working and that means that people are out of jobs and movies can’t be made and millions of dollars are lost.’
However, Piers argued: ‘Let’s be honest, if one of us inadvertently got too close and reacted like that… I don’t think it’s a good look for Tom Cruise, there’s a different way to do it.
‘You can go and have a quiet word with these guys, that felt really like he’s on the edge. Weird.’
He continued: ‘The thing about Tom Cruise is he comes across like he’s an incredibly nice bloke, remember, he’s very up the ranks of Scientology and there have been some extraordinary recordings of him over the years going completely nuts.
‘So I’d take it with a slight pinch of salt. Good luck to Tom Cruise on set, there’d be a lot of people out there wanting to return the favour.’
Susanna weighed in: ‘The language is unacceptable, I can understand they are managing to keep the movie industry going by the skin of their teeth, but the language is… you don’t speak to someone like that at work.’
In the audio clip obtained by The Sun, Tom’s distinctive voice is heard screaming: ‘We are the gold standard. They’re back there in Hollywood making movies right now because of us, because they believe in us and what we’re doing.
‘I’m on the phone with every f*****g 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!’
After further ranting, Tom concluded: ‘We are not shutting this f*****g movie down! Is it understood?
‘If I see it again, you’re f*****g gone.’
Good Morning Britain airs weekdays at 6am on ITV.
