Hollywood legend Tom Cruise almost accidentally ended up in Rishi Sunak‘s car after a mix-up at a heliport in London.

The Top Gun actor could be seen waving to adoring fans as he strode out on to the car park at London Heliport in Battersea.

Cruise, wearing a light grey polo shirt and black trousers, attempts to yank open the door of the black Audi before realising it is the wrong vehicle.

The Hollywood star, who has been spending time in London filming the latest instalment of the Mission Impossible series, then walks awkwardly to the right car while one of his entourage ushers him in.

Later on, Mr Sunak was spotted leaving the heliport and getting into the same vehicle that Cruise had previously darted towards.

Cruise, who has held a pilot’s licence since 1994 and owns several planes, was seen in the cockpit, alongside a secondary pilot, as he landed at London Helipad.

He had flown from Longcross film studios in Surrey where he is filming the eighth Mission Impossible movie which will see him return as agent Ethan Hunt.

The seventh film, Dead Reckoning Part One came out last year. However, production on the second instalment was delayed because of the Hollywood writers’ strike.

It is not the only UK location where the American star has been spotted.

In March, he was seen filming in Derbyshire alongside Simon Pegg and Hayley Atwell.

The Mission: Impossible film series, which launched in 1996, is based on a 1966 television series of the same name.

Along with the action franchise, Cruise is flying back into action in a new Top Gun sequel after the box office hit Maverick, which grossed nearly $1.5billion.
