Tom Cruise – what’s he like, eh?(Picture: Getty Images)
Tom Cruise interrupted a couple’s peaceful hike in the Lake District while filming a stunt for his new movie, and we’d expect nothing less, to be honest.
Cruise, who is known for undertaking most of his own stunts on his films, ended up apologising to Sarah and Jason Haygarth, who were out for a walk in the Lake District when they came across Tom filming a death-defying stunt for Mission: Impossible 7.
They revealed the 60-year-old said sorry for the interruption before he paraglided off a cliff.
Stunned, Jason told Extra that he and his wife love going for walks and explained how one of their recent strolls went awry with some serious A-list action.
They said that they met two men who said a movie was being filmed in the area but they decided to continue their hike.
‘We carried on, carried on, and the helicopters all morning was at the side of the lake… bottom near the lake… Thinking, if anything, it would be scenic shots,’ Jason continued.

As they got towards the end of the walk on the final peak, the couple saw helicopters travelling over a ravine and ‘dropping people off the top’, with Jason adding: ‘We were like, this didn’t seem right.’
Upon realising the people were camera operators, they were then met by a member of the production team who told them they weren’t able to pass through.
Sarah added that once they were allowed to proceed they turned a corner and saw Cruise strapping himself into a paraglider.
‘I could tell it was him straight away… By the time we got there, people were talking about Mission: Impossible was being filmed… but I was
expecting a stunt double,’ she said.
Jason added: ‘He said sorry first for the noise. “Sorry, guys, I know we spoiled your walk with the noise.”‘
‘We asked, “what are you doing?” Then he said, “I’m going to jump off.” I was like, “You’re going to do what?” He said, “I’m going to jump off.”
‘Just before he jumped off, he said, “see ya! Hopefully, this goes well,” and we said, “Good luck, Tom.”‘

It was recently revealed that Tom is looking for a London home, after spending the last few years filming in the UK.
Tom has his sights set on Kensington, West London and one bonus to living in London for Tom is that he gets to see more of his daughter Isabella, who lives in Croydon.
A source previously said: ‘He’s fallen in love with everything about the UK.

‘His daughter lives here, he enjoys a good cuppa and he loves the fact he can be himself.
‘The biggest thing is he’s developed a proper circle of friends. He’s the happiest I’ve ever seen him.”
And Tom is said to have become close to Prince William and his wife, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge.
The insider said: ‘It has turned into quite a special friendship. He was so happy to be involved in the Jubilee proceedings.
‘There was chatter that Kate and William asked him to do it. It wouldn’t
be surprising because he adores the Royal Family.’
