It turns out that Tom Cruise is really Ethan Hunt.
We often see Tom Cruise kick the ass and save the world on screen, but recently a story was confirmed in which he saves his co-star in real life. Think back to the 1988 film cocktail. Yes, it wasn’t a great action movie, but there was still some danger.
Cruise starred in the film with Elisabeth Shue. And according to a new report from The sun, the aerial cameraman Bill Bennett who worked on it cocktail, wrote about the feat on Facebook. It was reported that Cruise confirmed this with Impossible mission Director Christopher McQuarrie.
Go over to The website of the sun to read the full review, but here are the highlights.
“We shot the scene from a helicopter with Tom and Elisabeth riding horses on the beach,” wrote Bennett. “After a few shots, the pilot landed the helicopter on the beach and Tom and Elisabeth came over to look at the footage and get notes from the director. The only monitor was in my operating position on the left front seat of the helicopter … The rotor is invisible when it is spinning and if you step inside you will be killed instantly. It’s an absolute no-go area when working with helicopters. “
So Cruise and Shue watch the replay of the scene and then “Shue suddenly took off and ran to the tail of the helicopter”.
“Tom is a pilot who has served on both airplanes and helicopters and immediately saw the danger,” wrote Bennett. “He lunged at her but could only grab her legs and hold her to the ground … At that point she turned white and he pulled her back to the front of the helicopter and they walked away. All of us in the helicopter are quite shocked by the close call, but there was nothing to be said. Tom had really saved her life at that moment. ”
Thankfully, Cruise’s attack saved Shue’s life, the film continued to shoot, and the story was practically forgotten for the past 34 years until the Facebook post caught up with her.
It sounds like an exceptionally close call and is another moment in Tom Cruise lore.
