Pegg says Cruise is just a regular dude.

Simon Pegg has said that his Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation co-star Tom Cruise is “just a regular dude” and spoke about how much fun they had on the set of the latest instalment of the action franchise.

Speaking to TEN and other press, the actor revealed that the closer you get to the worldwide superstar, “the more normal he is” explaining: “His public image is so complex and intricate and mysterious and there are assumptions and myths about him… What would be going through your head? “You’re thinking about the lighting, the angle, how’s the shot,” says Tom Cruise or his latest hair-raising stunt in “Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation.” In Vienna on Thursday for the world premiere of their film, Cruise and other leads in the cast talked to The Associated Press about its making — and how they already miss the months of hard work that went into the fifth in the “Mission: Impossible” series. One of the most suspenseful episodes takes the audience to the city’s ornate opera house where Cruise, as Ethan Hunt, plays a deadly game of hide-and-go seek members of The Syndicate, a dark force bent on destroying the earth — and while they’re at it, killing Austria’s chancellor.

Then I sat in the back when the door opens, which was fun because when you’re in an aeroplane and a door opens it’s quite weird, but all the time he’s on the outside just doing this crazy stunt and I’m just thinking ‘I’m really glad that’s not me!’ “He sets himself these goals and they’re all about making sure the audience knows it’s him, that it’s not some stuntman, it’s not CG.

It all turns out well in the end, both in the film and for Ferguson who says she has grown through the experience. “It’s been such a ride, when it comes to challenging yourself, physically working alongside Tom Cruise,” she said. Ferguson, who trained intensely for weeks for the physicality she displayed in the film’s fighting scenes, called the experience “exhausting, exhilarating and … intoxicating,” adding: “Now I’m sort of decommissioning, realizing what actually has happened.” McQuarrie said Pegg was “able to really invest the script with a sense of impossibility and adventure — but also with character and things that made the characters more relatable and more real. Wearing contact lenses to protect his eyes from specks of debris, Cruise hangs on the Airbus, scrapes his knee on the asphalt in a breathtaking motorcycle chase and holds his breath for a full six minutes under water as he battles — and ultimately destroys — The Syndicate.
