Vanessa Kirby, who co-starred alongside Tom Cruise in Mission Impossible: Fallout, recently came out to laugh at the rumors that she and her co-star were dating for the second time. At the time of the initial reports, Kirby was dating Callum Turner and had been for around two years, but the tabloids reported that she was kissing Tom while on the set of MI:7.
In reality, she was kissing Mr. Cruise, but it was a part of the movie, rather than a part of a romance. In the latest issue of Marie Claire UK, Kirby said the biggest problem for her, was when media publications began reporting about her and Tom’s supposed “romance,” and friends began texting her boyfriend about it, asking if he was “ok.”
Because of the media conjecture, they no longer believe anything they read in the news because it was such an exaggeration. Kirby, in the interview, said there were rumors she was getting married to Tom when they hadn’t even started dating.
Nonetheless, Kirby, the actress who portrays a weapons merchant, with the moniker, The White Widow, said she was excited to be working with Mr. Cruise on the latest movie.
She was so happy to have the role that she binge-watched the first six films in the franchise. The star joked that her boyfriend told her he now has the Mission Impossible theme song stuck in his head for life.
As for what Tom is like on set, Kirby said the legendary actor was everything she thought he would be. Kirby confirmed that everything she had read about Tom was all wrong; he’s a great person to work with.
However, there was a silver lining to understanding that Tom was better than expected: she learned to take media conjecture with a grain of salt, and instead, get to know the person first.
Either way, Kirby’s career has taken off in the last few years, perhaps, becoming the most famous for Netflix’s The Crown. Regarding her boyfriend, Kirby stated that he has been so understanding throughout all of the rumors about her and Tom. “He’s my best friend,” the actress remarked.
