People are pouring in enormous numbers to see Tom Cruise’s Top Gun: Maverick, which is breaking box office records. The question is, Why not? When you realize that the death-defying stunts in the fighter jets were shot in real life with no stunt doubles or CGI, they become even more captivating.
Cruise loves to take his films to new heights, but he also makes sure that his co-stars go through the same procedure and execute their stunts. Miles Teller, aka Rooster, has already discussed it, claiming that some of the action parts are tough to do. Miles’ story regarding his blood contamination is by far the most amazing of all the stories presented from that preparation.
Miles Teller revealed he got jet fuel in his blood while preparing for Top Gun 2
The actor recently went on Late Night With Seth Meyers and confessed that he felt nauseous just after filming one of the movie’s airplane sequences.
“We landed and I’m just like, ‘Man, I’m not feeling too good.’ I was really hot and I just started itching like crazy, so I get out of the jet and I’m just covered in hives, like head to toe. Instantly, I go to a doctor, I do like blood analysis, this, that whatever. I’m in an oatmeal bath at night. So I go to the doctor and my blood work comes back and I have flame-retardant, pesticides, and jet fuel in my blood.”
Mile then revealed that he couldn’t resist but share the same with Tom Cruise. And Cruise’s reaction to the same was really what one can expect from him.
“Then I thought, ‘Wait a second, this is actually kind of cool.’ So I go to set the next day and Tom [Cruise] is like, ‘So how did it go, Miles? What did they find?’ I was like, ‘Well, Tom, it turns out I have jet fuel in my blood.’ And without even skipping a beat, Tom just goes, ‘Yeah, I was born with it kid.’ So that was a very Tom moment for me.”
Top Gun: Maverick is the long-awaited sequel to Cruise’s successful 1986 film, in which he stars as Navy pilot “Maverick” Mitchell. Maverick is now an instructor in the sequel, and one of the pilots he’s instructing is Teller’s “Rooster” Bradshaw. Rooster is Maverick’s late buddy “Goose” Bradshaw’s son.
Top Gun: Maverick is currently playing in theaters.
