Tom Cruise is one of the most famous actors in the world of Hollywood. Tom Cruise has many honors in his artistic credentials. Tom Cruise has gained most of his fame by appearing in action movies and has become one of the most popular actors in the world. Tom Cruise news and fringe has become a favorite of many.

Tom Cruise has lived in luxury and stayed in some of the world’s coolest celeb haunts, but even for the Hollywood titan, this latest pad is a bit special.

I’m told the A-list action hero is moving into an address previously held by one of the few guys whose save-the-day credentials surpass the Top Gun star’s own — Winston Churchill.

Leading man Tom has been renting a mansion inside a gated comm­unity in Kent for the past 18 months while working on the beleaguered new Mission Impossible film — which he has finally finished after endless Covid setbacks.

Tom Cruise will ensure his next film project gets off to a smooth start after renting a luxury apartment that once served as former Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill's war room. 

The Hollywood star has suffered a series of delays while attempting to film Mission: Impossible 7 during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. 

But when he returns to London in 2022 to start work on the next film in the franchise, he will be staying at Churchill’s former war rooms in London’s Whitehall.

But with work finally completed and the film scheduled for a 2022 release, Cruise, 59, is believed to be planning his eighth appearance as elusive spy Ethan Hunt, and has already found a place to stay when work begins in England next year. 

Tom will move into a newly converted pent­house where the World War Two leader and his top generals masterminded their victory. That’s pretty cool by any standards.

A source tells me: “Tom is working in central London a lot next year and wanted somewhere nearby to base himself rather than commuting in and out of town.

“He saw that Churchill’s former offices had come on the market and was immediately excited — and was won over.

“They’ve been turned into the most incredible flats, seriously smart and right in the heart of Whitehall.

The smart Westminster area also provided inspiration for author Ian Fleming while he created the world inhabited by 007 James Bond in his hugely successful book series, upon which the iconic film franchise would be based.  

Churchill's Cabinet War Rooms were constructed beneath the Treasury building in 1938, one year before Britain declared war on Adolf Hitler's marauding Nazi Germany. 

They were abandoned seven years later in August 1945, shortly after Nazi sympathizers Japan surrendered to the west following atomic explosions in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. 

The rooms now serve as one of five branches of the Imperial War Museums, with major redevelopment taking place following their reopening to the public in 1984. 

“Those buildings also inspired Ian Fleming when he was writing James Bond. You feel like 007 just walking through the doorway.”

Tom fell in love with the UK while making the most recent film — hosting an England-themed birthday bash at his home in July amid England’s run to the Euro 2020 final and even installing a dart board at his pad.

Cruise - whose apartment is believed to be located in the same building - will return to the United Kingdom after successfully navigating his last Mission: Impossible film through the COVID-19 outbreak. 

The film which will see Cruise reprise his role as Ethan Hunt, wrapped filming back in September after an eighteen month production.

After having its release date delayed twice due to the coronavirus pandemic, the blockbuster is set to grace the big screen on September 30 2022.

It is the third film in the franchise directed by McQuarrie, who also was at the helm for the previous two: Rogue Nation (2015) and Fallout (2018). 


Tom Cruise has a DATE in London?

He also began dating London-born co-star Hayley Atwell.

While the ro­mance didn’t work out, it clearly hasn’t damp­en­ed his enthusiasm for all things British — and when he turns 60 in July he is expected to celebrate here.

As well as the mile­stone birthday, two major film releases mean 2022 will be a big year for Tom.

His long-awaited Top Gun: Maverick, a sequel to the 1986 original, is on track to finally hit cinemas on May 27.

Then in September, Mission: Impossible 7 is scheduled to finally be released.

So in between shooting, prom­o­ting and celebrating his big birthday, he has a packed year in store.

No wonder he wants somewhere fancy to relax in.
