"If I see you do it again, you're f***ing gone. And if anyone in this crew does it, that's it — and you too and you too. And you, don't you ever f***ing do it again," Cruise shouted at the two crew members who stood less than a meter away from each other at a computer screen, reported The Sun.
Adding that they were creating thousands of jobs by making movies in Hollywood, the 58-year-old said: "We are creating thousands of jobs, you motherf***ers. That's it. No apologies. You can tell it to the people that are losing their f***ing homes because our industry is shut down. We are not shutting this f***ing movie down. Is it understood? If I see it again, you're f***ing gone."
