So Lucky! Tom Cruise Pulls Off Grand Gesture For Unsuspecting Family After Landing in Their Garden
Tom Cruise pulled off a grand gesture for a family in Warwickshire for allowing him to land his helicopter in their garden.
According to the Daily Mail UK, the Hollywood legend is currently in the United Kingdom to film his upcoming "Mission: Impossible" film sequel.
The unsuspecting family did not expect Cruise to arrive in their backyard. They were only told that an unnamed VIP needed a place to land his helicopter somewhere as Coventry Airport is currently closed because it's being replaced by West Midlands Gigafactory to produce electric vehicle battery packs.

The family was shocked to see the "Oblivion" star as he stepped out of the helicopter and walked towards them to have a little chat with the owner's children.
Alison Webb, the garden owner, said it would be fantastic for her kids to see an aircraft arrive in their garden, but Cruise suddenly "arrived and got out," leading them to be starstruck for a bit.
"He went straight over to the children for a chat, then came over and elbow bumped us and said thank you very much." Webb told BBC.
Not only that, but the Hollywood royalty also offered her kids and their friends a helicopter ride as the actor attends a meeting.
"It turned out to be an incredible day, it was surreal, I still now can't believe it happened." She added. Aside from visiting the Warwickshire-based family, Cruise also explored Birmingham, specifically Asha's, a popular Indian restaurant. (check out the photo below)
