There are rumors that Tom Cruise is not happy about Brad Pitt being cast in a leading role in an upcoming racing movie. According to New Idea Magazine, the Mission: Impossible star is disappointed that the director, Joseph Kosinski, did not consider him for the part, given his interest in action movies.
Pitt had previously admitted that working with Cruise on The Interview with the Vampire was challenging, as there was “underlying competition” between them. The two actors have reportedly been in competition for many roles over the years, leading to a secret rivalry between them.
The insider source suggests that Cruise may feel that Pitt is stepping on his turf with this new role, especially since Cruise is known for performing his own dangerous stunts in movies. The upcoming film will be directed by Kosinski, who also directed Cruise’s Top Gun: Maverick.
The insider also suggests that Pitt’s close friends, including Jennifer Aniston, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Ellen DeGeneres, are aware of the rivalry between the two actors and may avoid Cruise at social settings to prevent any tension or conflict.
