Tom Cruise stuns golfers as he lands on their quiet course in a helicopter to grab lunch… after filming for the new Mission: Impossible movies resumed
It’s not unusual to see a birdie or an eagle on a golf course.
But players at Richmond Golf Club were stunned when a helicopter landed – and Tom Cruise got out.
The Hollywood star, 58, made his grand entrance at the course in south-west London before strolling off to the Grade-I listed Georgian clubhouse for his lunch.

The actor wore dark glasses and a cap along with a face mask. He continued his all-dark ensemble with a black jumper and denim jeans.

Exempted individuals will instead have to live and work in controlled ‘bubbled’ environments, such as filming locations, for the same period of time.
‘The world’s biggest blockbusters and high-end TV shows are made in Britain,’ Dowden explained, nodding to the seventh and eighth installments of the hit spy films being shot in Hertfordshire.
He added: ‘Our creativity, expertise and highly successful tax reliefs for our screen industries means that we are an in demand location that in turn delivers a great return for our economy.
