Tom Cruise is moving into Winston Churchill’s former war rooms in Whitehall for Mission: Impossible filming

TOM CRUISE has lived in luxury and stayed in some of the world’s coolest celeb haunts, but even for the Hollywood titan, this latest pad is a bit special.

I’m told the A-list action hero is moving into an address previously held by one of the few guys whose save-the-day credentials surpass the Top Gun star’s own — Winston Churchill.



Leading man Tom has been renting a mansion inside a gated comm­unity in Kent for the past 18 months while working on the beleaguered new Mission Impossible film — which he has finally finished after endless Covid setbacks.

But when he returns to London in 2022 to start work on the next film in the franchise, he will be staying at Churchill’s former war rooms in London’s Whitehall.

Tom will move into a newly converted pent­house where the World War Two leader and his top generals masterminded their victory. That’s pretty cool by any standards.

A source tells me: “Tom is working in central London a lot next year and wanted somewhere nearby to base himself rather than commuting in and out of town.

“He saw that Churchill’s former offices had come on the market and was immediately excited — and was won over.

“They’ve been turned into the most incredible flats, seriously smart and right in the heart of Whitehall.

“Those buildings also inspired Ian Fleming when he was writing James Bond. You feel like 007 just walking through the doorway.”

Tom fell in love with the UK while making the most recent film — hosting an England-themed birthday bash at his home in July amid England’s run to the Euro 2020 final and even installing a dart board at his pad.

He also began dating London-born co-star Hayley Atwell.

While the ro­mance didn’t work out, it clearly hasn’t damp­en­ed his enthusiasm for all things British — and when he turns 60 in July he is expected to celebrate here.

As well as the mile­stone birthday, two major film releases mean 2022 will be a big year for Tom.

His long-awaited Top Gun: Maverick, a sequel to the 1986 original, is on track to finally hit cinemas on May 27.

Then in September, Mission: Impossible 7 is scheduled to finally be released.

So in between shooting, prom­o­ting and celebrating his big birthday, he has a packed year in store.

No wonder he wants somewhere fancy to relax in.
