An impossible mission? The famous action film hero Tom Cruise (60) mostly does his own stunts. His most famous films are probably “Top Gun” and Mission: Impossible. The superstar also likes to buy fancy cars privately! Among other things, the actor bought a Bugatti Veyron with 1,001 hp for over a million dollars. However, for him that was the last car he will own from the manufacturer – Tom is not allowed to buy a Bugatti for the rest of his life because he had an embarrassing breakdown!
The reason for the place on the blacklist goes back years. At the premiere of his film “Mission: Impossible 3” in 2005, Tom drove up to the red carpet in his Bugatti. His now ex-wife Katie Holmes (44) was in the passenger seat, and he wanted to help out of the car in a gentlemanly manner But then came the embarrassing moment: The stunt king just couldn’t get the door of the car open! In the light of the spotlights and the press, it took more than half a minute until the door finally opened.
The French car manufacturer saw the incident as a major PR disaster and as a result, no longer wanted to do business with the Hollywood star. Of course, Tom was allowed to keep his Bugatti. Other stars are also no longer allowed to buy from certain luxury brands – Justin Bieber (28), for example, is on Ferrari’s blacklist!
