Tom Cruise Apologizes to Couple for Disrupting Their Hike While Filming Mission: Impossible Stunt

Husband-and-wife pair, Jason and Sarah Haygarth, were on a walk with their dog in a very remote and quite hilly U.K. national park called Like District when to their surprise, they noticed an unusual sight. Helicopters were hovering over one area. The Haygarths told Extra:

“Toward the end of the walk, last peak, we start seeing helicopters coming up a ravine and dropping people off the top… We were like, this didn’t seem right. We found out the people, they were the cameramen. When we came to the peak, we got stopped by what must have been a production team member, saying, ‘You can’t go. We’re going to land the helicopter off the top…’ So, we took a selfie.”

After Sarah and Jason got the “all clear” to continue their hike, the couple stumbled upon actor Tom Cruise “strapping himself into a paraglider.”

Sarah told Extra:

“I could tell it was him straight away. By the time we got there, people were talking about Mission: Impossible was being filmed … but I was expecting a stunt double.”

Jason recounted their chat with the star:

“He apologized first for the noise. ‘Sorry, guys, I know we spoiled your walk with the noise,’ ” Jason said Cruise told them. And then he said, ‘I like your dog.’ We asked, ‘What are you doing?’ Then he said, ‘I’m going to jump off.’ I was like, ‘You’re going to do what?’ He said, ‘I’m going to jump off.’ Just before he jumped off, he said, ‘See ya! Hopefully this goes well,’ and we said, ‘Good luck, Tom.’ “

The Sun shared footage of Cruise jumping from the cliff for the stunt scene.

Tom Cruise Has Been a Daredevil Since Early an Age

Earlier this year, the 60-year-ol actor spoke during a panel at the Cannes Film Festival where he confessed to being a daredevil since he was a young boy. Cruise recalled:

“I think I was about 4½ years old, and I had this doll, and you throw it up in the air and a parachute comes down. I played with this thing, and I’d throw it off a tree, and I was like, ‘I really want to do this.’ I remember taking the sheets off my bed, and I would tie a rope … and I climbed up to the eave, and I got up to the roof. I looked and my mother was in the kitchen — she had four kids — and I jumped off the roof.”

Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part 1, the franchise’s seventh installment, hits theaters July 14, 2023.
