She had to go for a trick.
Tom Cruise is one of the highest paid actors in the world, and for many it is already an honor to be in the same film with him. True, also the star of the Mission: Impossible franchise is known as a perfectionist on and off the set, who is not stingy with harsh remarks and demands that everything be in line with his views.
This trait of Cruise nearly cost his Mummy (2017) co-star Annabelle Wallis a memorable episode. In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the actress said that when she first asked Tom if she could run next to him in one shot, he replied:
Nobody runs on the screen with me.
Annabelle decided not to give up and set everything up in such a way that Cruz would catch her on the treadmill and make sure she was in great shape. As a result, the actor nevertheless changed his mind, and Wallis admitted that this moment was “better than Oscar” for her.
I was so happy that I had a chance to run on screen with Tom Cruise. It’s so beautiful to be inspired by someone and to be in awe of what they have achieved in their life,
– said the actress.
But even though this moment became unforgettable for Wallis, in general “Mummy” could not boast of good reviews. It is hoped that the suspicious Cruz does not associate this with the fact that someone managed to convince him to change his mind.
