In what turned out to be quite a busy week for the Hollywood star, he also hit headlines when he landed his helicopter in the garden of an unsuspecting family in Warwickshire.
The residents had agreed to let the aircraft use their backyard as a landing pad as Coventry Airport was temporarily closed.
However, they had no idea the helicopter was being piloted by the actor.
As a thank you, Tom let her kids take a ride in the helicopter for free, and posed for plenty of snaps with the incredibly starstruck family.
“I thought it would be kind of cool for the kids to see the helicopter land in the garden,” Alison told the BBC.
She continued: “He [Tom Cruise] basically arrived and got out and it was like, ‘Wow’.
“He went straight over to the children for a chat, then came over and elbow bumped us and said thank you very much.”
Alison added that the day was “incredible” and “surreal” after the Hollywood star turned up at her doorstep.
