Who can yell at whom on set?
Last night it was revealed that Tom Cruise had yelled at some of the crew members on the set of the new movie Mission: Impossible. This wasn't a joke about being handed a sweaty diet coke or putting up lights, but a full plea from him to certain crew members to take COVID-19 seriously.
There are many logs on set and when he saw that some had escaped, he feared they would be shut down. T.You can hear the actor screaming, "I see you're doing it again, you're gone!"
You can hear the audio below.
The movie Mission: Impossible has already been postponed once due to a COVID outbreak, so I understand Cruise's concern and desire for this movie to keep the staff busy and people shooting. It currently causes over 1.6 million deaths worldwide. So this is serious. The more people take it seriously, the faster we can open up again and go to the theater.
The most talked-about part of the chatter is like this, "They're in Hollywood right now, making movies because of us. Because they believe in us and what we do. I talk to every night in the studio, insurance companies, producers, and they watch contact us and use us to make their films. We create thousands of jobs, mothers! I never want to see this again. Always! "
This is Cruise who stands up for what he believes in and what keeps people safe and that's admirable, but don't they have a COVID compliance officer who can?
I want to play Devil & # 39; s Advocate here for a minute because this is Hollywood. There's a story of angry actors, directors and producers screaming on the set. There's an awful PTSD for people who showed up on sets like this.
On the flip side, I like how Cruise took it easy on himself to say that he takes COVID very seriously and that he understands that making a movie feels reckless, but it offers thousands of jobs and pays for People trying to fight through these times.
Sometimes shouting can be the way to get people to get it.
We've also seen some conversations online about how screaming on set is a privilege only given to white men, and that the responses might not be as friendly and supportive if it were a different actor or director.
There is a lot to judge when it comes to this stuff.
Who can scream on the set?
Do you think Cruise was right or wrong?
