LONDON – Tom Cruise says he and Prince William have “a lot in common” as members of Britain’s royal family join Hollywood stars on the red carpet in London for the UK premiere of the new “Top Gun” movie.
Speaking about William, Cruz told reporters: “We have a lot in common. We both love England, and we’re both pilots, we both love to fly. “
William trained as a search and rescue pilot and was known as Flight Lieutenant Wales in the Royal Air Force.
Cruz is seen introducing William and Kate to the cast members of the movie, including Jennifer Connelly and John Hamm, in front of a model of the movie Fighter Jet.
It was originally scheduled for release in July 2019, but was repeatedly postponed due to the coronavirus epidemic.
“Over the last few years, it’s been great to have an event like this,” Cruz said.
The actor was among the celebrities who took part in a cavalry rally on Sunday to celebrate the 70th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II’s platinum jubilee.
