Tom Cruise has revealed that he usually sneaks in to see his own movies on their opening dayin theaters with the public that has gone through the box, including the Oscar nominee for best film, ‘Top Gun: Maverick’, but he has also said that he uses a simple trick, much less sophisticated than the masks of his Ethan Hunt from the ‘Mission: Impossible’ saga, to avoid being recognized.
Mission: Be unrecognizable
In a recent interview with Jimmy Kimmel, Cruise said that when in theaters or on public transportation, he simply wears…a baseball cap. What he tells the host is that, obviously, that doesn’t always work to avoid recognition when you’ve been a star for four decades.
“Sometimes they see me. When I’m sitting next to them, they look at me. I take some photos and sign some autographs.”
During the show, Cruise recalled a story about a girl on the London Underground who recognized him when no one had detected him. The girl took a secret photo of him and he jokingly put his finger to his mouth to keep the secret between them and prevent everyone else on the subway from recognizing him. He also insisted that he makes movies for cinema because he loves to watch movies in theaters with audiencesespecially ‘Top Gun: Maverick’.
“The movie is made for the big screen. We made it for theaters, me, my friends, the whole team.”
He explained why he loves the experience of rooms, and gave details of the sequel to ‘Maverick’ and sent a message to producer Jerry Bruckheimer.
“I always wanted to travel the world, so when I started making movies, I was able to go see it in other countries, so I always go with other audiences, I also see their movies with them. When I make a movie, I want to go see it with people I just try to do as much as I can, I use all the tools I have, to entertain them. As for a sequel… we’re just enjoying this one. I have no idea. It took 35 years to make Top Gun: Maverick, but I guess I’m not going to around the world in another 35 years”.
