Tom Cruise Talks His Mission For 'Top Gun: Maverick' In New Interview

Tom Cruise is opening up about his upcoming film, Top Gun: Maverick, in a brand new interview with Empire magazine.

The 57-year-old actor, who returns as Pete “Maverick” Mitchell in the flick, revealed just how the movie came about.

“We just started talking,” Tom shared, “and I realized that there were things that we could accomplish cinematically. I started getting excited about this big challenge of, ‘How do we do it?’ So I said to Jerry [Bruckheimer, producer], ‘I’ll do it if…’ meaning, I’m not going to do the CGI stuff.”

Tom also made it clear to the studio before the movie started what he wanted to do with the movie, with Jerry adding that there was a clear difference from the original – and the stars went through flight training for it.

“What’s different about this movie is that [in Top Gun] we put the actors in the F-14s and we couldn’t use one frame of it, except some stuff on Tom, because they all threw up,” he shared. “It’s hysterical to see their eyes roll back in their heads. So everything was done on a gimbal. But in this movie, Tom wanted to make sure the actors could actually be in the F-18s.”

If you didn’t see, Tom actually paid for Glen Powell to get his actual pilot’s license after filming sparked his interest in aviation.

Glen Powell is officially a licensed pilot!

The Top Gun: Maverick star revealed the big news on his Instagram today, and credited co-star Tom Cruise for helping him achieve one of his dreams.

“Try not falling in love with aviation after living out every pilot’s dream while shooting @topgunmovie,” Glen captioned with a video on his feed. “Especially when you see the way @tomcruise flexes it. After wrapping a shooting day, Tom would rocket off into the sunset in his P-51 while I would limply shuffle into the cast van.”

Glen revealed that Tom was a major factor in obtaining his license too: “…For Christmas, Tom bought me an iPad with my flight school downloaded and prepaid. And yesterday, after months of flying, studying, and testing…I’m the real deal.”

Top Gun: Maverick is set to open this summer. Check out the first TV spot now!

Katie Holmes Details 'Intense' Attention After Tom Cruise Split

Katie Holmes was asked about moving to New York City back in 2012 right after divorcing her ex Tom Cruise.

“When you finally moved [to NYC] in 2012 [after divorcing Cruise], there was, of course, a huge amount of attention on you,” InStyle asked Katie for their cover story.

“That time was intense. It was a lot of attention, and I had a little child on top of it. We had some funny moments out and about in public. So many people I didn’t know became my friends and helped us out, and that’s what I love about the city,” Katie explained. “There was one incredible moment when I think I actually cried. Suri was 6 or 7, and she was spending the night at a friend’s house while I was seeing the ballet at Lincoln Center. At 10 o’clock I got a call: “Mommy, can you come get me?” I got a cab and went down to Battery Park to pick her up. She was exhausted. She fell asleep on the way home, and when we pulled up to our building, the cab driver opened the door and helped me not wake her. He helped carry her to the building. He was so kind.”

Katie also spoke about Suri, who is now 13 years old, in the interview, saying, “I love her so much. My biggest goal has always been to nurture her into her individuality. To make sure she is 100 percent herself and strong, confident, and able. And to know it. She came out very strong — she’s always been a strong personality. She’ll pick an activity and work her butt off until she’s really good at it. Then she’s like, ‘OK, I’m going to try the next thing.’ She’s very focused and a hard worker. I have to say, I did recently see some fan site [about her] posted when she was a baby, and it was very intense. We were followed a lot when she was little. I just wanted her outside, so I would walk her around to find parks at, like, 6 in the morning when nobody would see us. But there’s one video where I’m holding her — she was 2 at the time — and she starts waving at the cameras. She’s pretty special.”

A former Scientologist reportedly spoke out a few months ago that Tom is not allowed to contact Suri.

Elisabeth Moss Addresses Rumors She's Engaged to Tom Cruise

Elisabeth Moss is finally addressing those rumors that she and Tom Cruise got engaged.

While making an appearance on Watch What Happens Live, Elisabeth was asked about the rumors that she is romantically involved, and also secretly married to Tom.

She responded, “I actually was confused and also mainly got texts from people being like, ‘I didn’t know, why didn’t you tell me?’ And just confusion from my friends, but mainly poking fun at it ’cause obviously they knew it wasn’t true.”

“And then I saw it on the cover of one of the gossip magazines, and I was like, ‘I’ve never had that haircut,’” Elisabeth said of the photo on the cover of a tabloid. “Like, it was supposed to be a picture of the two of us and I was like, ‘I’ve never styled my hair like that.’”

Elisabeth‘s movie The Invisible Man is currently in theaters and originally, a different actor was going to play her role in the film!

'Mission: Impossible 7' Halted Due To Coronavirus

Production on the next installment of Mission: Impossible 7 has been halted as the coronavirus continues to spread.

Deadline reports that production for the seventh film in the franchise starring Tom Cruise has been postponed for the moment due to the reported 219 cases in the country.

Venice’s local government has actually put a stop to all public gatherings, closed all schools and museums and even brought an early stop to the Venice carnival.

Mission: Impossible 7 was set to film in Venice for three weeks before moving onto other European locations.

“Out of an abundance of caution for the safety and well-being of our cast and crew, and efforts of the local Venetian government to halt public gatherings in response to the threat of coronavirus, we are altering the production plan for our three week shoot in Venice, the scheduled first leg of an extensive production for Mission: Impossible 7,” Paramount Pictures released in their statement. “During this hiatus we want to be mindful of the concerns of the crew and are allowing them to return home until production starts. We will continue to monitor this situation, and work alongside health and government officials as it evolves.”

This other big budget movie’s premiere was cancelled in China due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Kate Hudson Recalls the Super Famous Actor Who Scaled an 8 Foot Gate to Crash Her Party

Kate Hudson just revealed that Tom Cruise once crashed a house party that she threw!

Back in the day, Kate and her brother Oliver, threw a party at the house of her parents – Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell – and she recalled what happened.

“I’m standing at the door making sure that people who aren’t supposed to be at the party aren’t coming in — there’s like 400 people at my parents’ house,” Kate said. “I’m kind of freaking out a little and I see someone scaling, literally scaling, an eight-foot gate at my parents’ house. They come off and they do a back handspring and pose and I’m about to yell at this guy, and it’s Tom Cruise.”

He apparently dropped by because he “heard there was a party.”

“So that’s how he gets everywhere — he just scales things,” Ellen DeGeneres added.

“Yes! He is Mission: Impossible! It’s wild,” Kate responded.
