Thandie Newton was ‘so scared’ of Tom Cruise on this film set


Thandie Newton has spoken about her experiences filming Mission: Impossible 2, saying that she was “so scared” of co-star Tom Cruise.

Newton, who played Nyah Nordoff-Hall in the 2000 action movie, discussed the film in a recent interview with Vulture.

When asked if she was offered roles in any of the sequels, she replied that she was never asked, adding that she was afraid of Cruise.

She described Cruise as a “very dominant individual” who puts a lot of pressure on himself and has a sense that only he can do everything as well as it can be done.

Newton said that during the filming of one particular scene, she and Cruise became frustrated with each other and it wasn’t going well.

Cruise suggested that they rehearse the scene by switching roles, with Newton saying his line and he saying hers.


Newton said the experience was “the most unhelpful” and made her feel more terrified and insecure.

However, she eventually completed the scene because she understood that Cruise wanted her to play an “alpha b****.”

She also added that Cruise wasn’t horrible but was really stressed during the filming.

The Independent reached out to Cruise’s representative for a comment on Newton’s statement.

Newton went on to star in the 2004 film Crash, which won her a BAFTA for Best Supporting Actress.

She also won an Emmy for her portrayal of Maeve Millay in the TV series Westworld.

Tom Cruise has been in the film industry for over 40 years, starring in many successful movies.

He is known for doing his own stunts and has been injured on multiple occasions while filming.

He is also known for his involvement in the Church of Scientology and for promoting its beliefs.

Thandie Newton has had a successful career in both film and television. She has appeared in various films, including The Pursuit of Happyness, Solo: A Star Wars Story, and The Chronicles of Riddick.

She has also starred in TV series like ER, Line of Duty, and Rogue.
