He further revealed that the filming was never shut down again despite the pandemic and said, “And here we are, continuing to film. All those emotions were going through my mind. And for the whole crew to know that we'd started rolling on a movie was just a huge relief... It was very emotional.”
The leaked audio had Cruise yelling at his crew members for not following social distancing rules and not adhering to Covid-19 protocols. Cruise saw two crew members standing too close to one another in front of a computer screen, so he yelled at them, "If I see you do it again you're f**king gone."
