Inside Simon Pegg’s Bromance with Tom Cruise

Having co-starred in the Mission: Impossible franchise since 2006, it’s unsurprising if Simon Pegg and Tom Cruise have such a tight-knit friendship. Simon even revealed that they have “deep conversations” now and then.

“People have these opinions about him which are based entirely on gossip,” the Star Trek actor defended Tom. “I’ll pull him up on stuff, and I can be frank with him,” Simon added.

Simon also shared how he always cheers whenever Tom texts him, even for trivial things. His smitten-like actions whenever there’s anything Tom Cruise-related got Maureen, Simon’s wife, often teasing and referring to Tom as “his boyfriend.”

Maureen Pegg isn’t the only love in Simon Pegg’s life! In an interview with The Guardian, Simon shared how Nick Frost and he have known each other for decades since Nick and Maureen were still waiting as restaurant waiters.
