Tom Cruise Shows Off His Impressive Head Of Newly-Dyed Highlighted Hair As He Jets Out Of London After Actor’S Strike


Tom Cruise had an amazing head of hair on Tuesday, making him look more like Mop Gun than Top Gun. The 61-year-old Hollywood star visited the hairdresser and left with a much lighter highlighted appearance than the darker hairstyle he had been photographed with in the summer.

Tom took a private jet from Florida to London and then boarded a helicopter to begin filming Mission Impossible 8. After the actor’s strike delayed the production, filming on the eighth installment—which is probably going to be titled Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part Two—will finally resume.

But before shooting any scenes, Tom will need to head to the Barber’s to chop off his barnet to transform into the slick field agent and operative Ethan Hunt.

Tom appeared in high spirits as he headed to the helicopter and took to the pilot’s seat. The actor has been an accomplished pilot for nearly 30 years after after securing his qualification in 1994. The Hollywood star was casually-clad for the outing in a navy jumper, jeans and white trainers.

Tom is no doubt eager to get back to work on the production after it had to be delayed due to the actor’s strike.

The actor was supposed to make a comeback on June 28, 2024, in the role of field agent Ethan. But because the studios had to rearrange the release dates due to the actors’ strike, it was postponed by nearly a year. Instead, Emily Blunt’s film A Quiet Place: Day One, distributed by Paramount Pictures, has taken over the time slot.


The WGA writers’ strike is ended, but the SAG-AFTRA actors’ strike is still in effect, therefore Paramount had to change the dates of their movie releases.

Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One underperformed at the box office compared to the previous films in the franchise, despite Tom’s attempts to extend its run.

The actor was concerned about Oppenheimer overshadowing the film, as it required the same limited screens. He was proved right as Oppenheimer achieved almost $400 million more than Mission: Impossible at box office. The Mission: Impossible film series, beginning in 1996, is based on a 1966 television series of the same name.

Originally, the eighth film’s production was put on hold to allow the cast to promote Part One, but more delays were caused by the strike that started. Four CEOs are expected to visit the SAG-AFTRA offices on Tuesday in order to resume talks, according to Variety. Among them will be Bob Iger of Disney, who just made the call to arrange the meeting with Duncan Crabtree-Ireland, SAG-AFTRA’s negotiation head.

The strikes have been ongoing since July.
