Henry Cavill is one of those celebrities who always has one or another hilarious anecdote or story in his pocket to share with his fans. And one of those fun stories involving the Steel man star was out for The Graham Norton Show few years ago.
And brownie points to the story, as it also involved a few other actors, including Tom Cruise and Simon Pegg! The incident happened on the set of a movie and it seemed like they all had a lot of fun shooting a particular scene that eventually turned into a great story to tell.
A humorous incident took place on the set of Mission: Impossible – Fall
Simon Pegg told a great story about The Graham Norton Show from the time when he, with a few other actors including Tom Cruise, Sean Harris, Ving Rhames and Henry Cavill was in Paris for the filming of Mission: Impossible – Fall (2018).
“We were filming a car chase in Paris” he said, talking about how the car they were in was quite cramped, especially for Rhames and Cavill who were both “the fat guys” due to which Pegg is the one who ended up getting stuck in the middle of the two actors due to lack of space.

“Every time we finished the shot, we had to reset the shot, go back to the starting points and start again”, the end of the world star explained.
After a while while filming the scene, Cavill was exhausted from sitting in a car with so much less space, and decided to run back to the point where they were to start instead. It wasn’t even a major shock because only DC’s Superman could do such a thing and be so fit he’d rather run than ride.
Tom Cruise teased Henry Cavill as he returned to set
Pegg went on to share the story mentioning how the witcher star chose to run towards the position instead of going through the car. “Henry took off and raced to first position,” he stated. And all the while, the other actors drove the car right by Cavill and laughed at him.
“We just rode next to him,” said the English comedian, singing the tune of Supermanimplying that they had all whistled the tune as Cavill ran beside their car. “He did everything right next to him” Cruise added pointing to his co-star.

Cavill didn’t seem the least bit bothered by it all and instead looked like he really enjoyed the time in Paris. “It’s one of the coolest times of my life, having Tom Cruise driving next to you,” he joked.
Clark Kent and Ethan Hunt really seemed to be having a hell of a time on set. And kudos to their incredible sense of humor too!
