Tom Cruise delighted fans in Leighton Buzzard earlier this week by posing for pictures after landing a helicopter on a sports field – as you do.

The star, 58, who is filming for Mission: Impossible 7 in a nearby quarry, was happy to chat and take pictures with residents after his rather noticeable arrival from the sky, before being driven to the film’s set.

Speaking to Leighton Buzzard Observer, eyewitness Dave Burton, 64, said that there were ‘about 20 to 50 people there’, and it was Tom who initiated the photographs by beckoning someone over as ‘a lot of people were standing back, being respectful’.

Dave continued: ‘He had his mask on, and he would point to the ground and say “stand there”. 

‘He kept saying that he only had a couple of minutes, but he made sure that everyone who wanted a picture got one!’

Dave also commented that he was a ‘small bloke’ who ‘looked very ordinary in his blue jeans and knitted jumper’.

Tom followed strict Covid-19 protocol during his encounter with fans, including wearing a mask, and Dave described him as ‘thoroughly pleasant’ and ‘a really nice bloke’, who was happy to chat to people about their dogs.

It’s reported that Tom had been landing at the Heath and Reach Sports Field at the same time each afternoon this week, likely explaining the small crowd of locals who were waiting to meet him.

This is not the first time Tom has been spotted piloting a helicopter recently or, indeed, in a UK town, as he was busy filming stunts with co-star Hayley Atwell in April in Pickering, Yorkshire with the whole MI7 crew in tow.

Tom also recently spoke out to defend his expletive-filled on-set rant to Mission: Impossible crew members, which was leaked back in December.

After discovering that some staff members hadn’t been observing Covid-19 social distancing guidelines, the actor and producer let rip at them, calling them ‘motherf*****s’.

‘I said what I said,’ the blockbuster star told Empire magazine. 

‘There was a lot at stake at that point… But it wasn’t my entire crew. I had the crew leave the set, and it was just select people.’ 

Tom also clarified that filming was ‘never shut down again’ so, in other words, his rant hit home for the crew members. 

Mission: Impossible 7 is set for release in May 2022.
