“This place is incredible!” Tom Cruise on South Africa

Veteran Hollywood actor Tom Cruise has described South Africa as “incredible and amazing”, even saying he would love to live here.

“It would be nice to live here,” the actor told a small group of people who had gathered to welcome the Top Gun actor to Limpopo.

Cruise is in the country filming Mission Impossible Eight, which some joke is about getting a driver’s license or visiting the Home Office.

“I’m very excited to be here, I’ve been wanting to film here for a long time”, cruise told fans.

“Can’t wait to see the new movie.”

The Hollywood heartthrob was greeted by some raving fans when he landed a helicopter in the Limpopo town of Hoedspruit.

Despite being out in the bush, Cruise looked dashing as ever with his perfectly tousled, wind-blown hair and dressed in navy blue fitted jeans and a T-shirt, revealing his defined muscular build.

Cruise was charming and humble while interacting with locals and thanking fans for their hospitality and support.

The 59-year-old said he worked seven days a week, but hoped to go on safari once filming was done.

The Jack Reacher star also gushed about seeing lions and cheetahs passing by. “They were just standing there in someone’s driveway,” Cruise told fans.

Cruise was also spotted in KwaZulu-Natal late last week, reportedly flying his own helicopter over Oribi Gorge as he searched for locations for the film.

In the film, directed by Christopher McQuarrie, Cruise will reprise his role as Agent Ethan Hunt.

The release date for Mission Impossible 7 has been postponed to July 14, 2023 while the release date for Mission Impossible 8 has been moved from July 7, 2023 to June 28, 2024.
