It’s not every day you run into Tom Cruise – or receive an apology from him.
Sarah and Jason Haygarth, a couple from the UK, were enjoying a hike around the Lake District with their dog, Edward, when they reportedly spotted and spoke with the “Top Gun: Maverick” star.
“Sorry for disturbing your peaceful walk with all the noise,” Cruise, 60, said, according to The U.S. Sun. “I like your dog.”
Per the outlet, Cruise landed on High Crag on a chopper right in front of the lovebirds, who were apparently caught off guard by the film stunt.
“Are you really going to jump off there?” Sarah asked the actor, who reportedly replied, “See you later, folks,” just as he was reaching the edge of the mountain.
Despite the stunt’s intensity, Sarah said the “Mission: Impossible” star seemed “as cool as a cucumber.”
Jason was equally stoked to meet Cruise, telling the outlet, “Before this, the most famous person I ever met was Richard Madeley.”
He added, “I ended up having a wee stood next to him in the gents. This tops that by a country mile.”
It is suspected that Cruise was filming the stunt for the latest installment of ”Mission: Impossible.”
As Page Six previously reported, the actor has been looking to buy a home in London in the upscale Kensington area.
“He’s shopping in the $10 million range,” a source told us last month. “This will be a new place and act more as a primary residence.”
Cruise recently attended Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee, the British Grand Prix and Wimbledon this summer, proof that he’s obviously been enjoying the UK.
Moving abroad would also make sense for Cruise as his 29-year-old daughter Isabella – whom he shares with ex-wife Nicole Kidman – lives in Croydon.
