Actor Tom Cruise received a thunderous ovation after he was presented with a “surprise” Palme d’Or, one that genuinely seemed to take him off guard.
The American arrived at the 75th Cannes Film Festival with the presentation of the new film Top Gun: Maverick, in which he played the main role. The action movie will be released worldwide on May 27.
The last time Tom Cruise was at this festival 30 years ago — in the spring of 1992, when the actor was presenting a Ron Howard film, Variety reports.
“This is an incredible evening and an incredible time... just to see everyone’s faces,” Cruise said.
