Cruise v. Crews: Tensions Reported on Local Aircraft Career While Filming ‘Top Gun’ Sequel

U.S. Navy personnel confirmed an incident aboard a local aircraft carrier during the filming of the ‘Top Gun’ sequel.

Actor Tom Cruise reportedly told servicemembers aboard the USS Theodore Roosevelt to not look at him or touch him.

“He angered USS Theodore crew while filming [the ‘Top Gun’ sequel]” one Navy member told NBC 7 Sunday. They said that Cruise was acting “very arrogant.”

Posts on social media, like Twitter and Reddit, saw servicemembers allege other incidents with the actor.

The source close to NBC 7 said this isn’t the first time local servicemembers have had conflicts with actors. Navy personnel reportedly had a conversation with Ben Affleck in regards to his behavior while filming the 2001 movie “Pearl Harbor.”

As of 11 a.m. Sunday, crews had not yet had a similar talk with Cruise.

A national film magazine ranked San Diego as one of the top 20 locations for filmmakers to live and work, a feat aided by the ‘Top Gun’ franchise.

Cruise was spotted on set in Coronado back in October 2018. Filming began the month prior.

The sequel is scheduled for release in July.

NBC 7 reached out to Cruise via Twitter but has not received a comment at this time.
