Tom Cruise suffered a pretty awkward moment after attempting to get into the Prime Minister’s car.

The Hollywood legend, 61, was in London last week and could be seen waving to fans as he strode out on to the car park at London Heliport in Battersea.

However, the Top Gun actor was then snapped and filmed attempting to open the door of a black Audi before quickly realising it was not the car he was meant to be in.

Although most of us have faced similar situations when approaching Ubers or forgetting which vehicle is ours in car parks, Tom had been trying to enter the car of one of the most powerful figures in the country.

Currently in the UK filming the latest instalment of the Mission Impossible film series, Tom then walked awkwardly to the right car while one of his entourage ushered him in.

Later in the day, Sunak was spotted leaving the heliport and getting into the same vehicle that Cruise had previously darted towards.

Although the politician didn’t have any trouble finding out which car he was meant to enter, it was made slightly easier by the fact an aide held the door open for him.

The mix-up took place on a day Sunak arrived back in the capital after an election campaign trip to Cornwall and Devon.

The Prime Minister had taken the sleeper train to the South West, arriving in Penzance in the morning.

He then returned to London by helicopter later that evening.

Meanwhile, last month Tom was spotted at Battersea after flying himself there in his own helicopter.

The actor has held a pilot’s licence since 1994 and owns several planes.

On that day he flew from Longcross film studios in Surrey, where the next Mission Impossible is being shot.

Last month his Top Gun: Maverick co-star Glen Powell revealed Tom pulled a heart-stopping prank on him.

Glen, who plays Lt. Jake ‘Hangman’ Seresin in the film, revealed that Tom once pretended to lose control of a helicopter they were flying in, plummeting over the city of London.

‘Tom goes, “Oh no, oh no,” and he starts dropping the helicopter over London,’ he told GQ.

He then recalled thinking: ‘Am I about to be the unnamed guy that dies with Tom in a smoking hole in the middle of London?’
