‘The Mummy’: Russell Crowe doesn’t speak kindly of working with Tom Cruise

While Universal was able to get their monster franchise reboot and headed back to theaters, the stars of The Mummy don’t sound like they’ll be locking arms outside of work anytime soon. A Daily Mail article reports that the set was full of tension and awkward moments between Russell Crowe and Tom Cruise — “…[Crowe] hasn’t been able to stand Tom for years.”

Quoting from New Idea, Crowe has never been to forgive Cruise’s treatment of longtime friend Nicole Kidman. “Russell is a loyal guy and never forgave Tom for the way he treated Nicole.If they’d stayed friends, he would’ve felt he was betraying Nic, so he froze Tom out of his life.”

Crusie and Kidman were married in 1990 and stayed together until they divorced in 2001. They even adopted two children together.

Though they have remained quiet about the details of their split, in 2015 at the Women In the World Summit at Cadogan Hall in London, Kidman said of the divorce, “To be completely honest, I was running away from my life at that time.” She went on to say that it was the “loneliest”  she has ever been in her life.

Cruise allegedly had Nicole labeled a suppressive person (SP) meaning she could not have any contact with the two children they adopted together.

In director Alex Kurtzman’s reboot of The Mummy, Cruise is Nick Morton, an amoral tough guy who runs afoul of a resurrected ancient Egyptian. Russell Crowe is Dr. Henry Jekyll — check out the pair in the image at the bottom.

Sofia Boutella of Kingsman: The Secret Service and Star Trek Beyond plays the titular creature. The cast also includes Annabelle Wallis (upcoming King Arthur, television’s Peaky Blinders), Jake Johnson (Jurassic World), Chasty Ballesteros and Courtney B. Vance (TV’s American Crime Story: The People V. O.J. Simpson)

The Mummy will hit theaters June 9, 2017.
