Tom Cruise Spotted Shirtless on Spanish Beach During ‘Mission: Impossible 8’ Break

Entertainment gossip and news from Newsweek’s network of contributors

Tom Cruise was seen unwinding at Formentor Beach in Mallorca, Spain over the weekend on May 11 and 12, showcasing his rather impressive physique.

The 61-year-old actor, known for his role in the Mission: Impossible franchise, was spotted taking a refreshing dip in the ocean alongside filmmaker Alejandro Gonzalez Iñarrit in photos obtained by Page Six. The two are currently collaborating on Iñarritu’s upcoming English-language film, their first project together since Iñarritu’s 2015 success, The Revenant.

Earlier that day, Cruise sported casual attire—a gray V-neck and tan fedora paired with chunky white sneakers—as he and Iñarritu boarded a small boat to a larger sailboat, where they appeared engaged in deep conversation, most likely about their new film venture. Details about the plot remain unknown, with Iñarritu set to produce and direct, and Cruise slated to star in the lead role.

Apart from this new project, Cruise has been occupied with the latest installment of the Mission: Impossible franchise, filming across various European locations including the United Kingdom and Norway. The production’s current pause allowed him some leisure time in Mallorca.

His recent sighting also follows the emergence of a rare public photo with his adult children, Bella and Connor, from his first marriage to Nicole Kidman. The photo was shared in December 2023 by former NFL star Derrick Brooks, who is also in the photo. The appearance with his two children highlighted a rare family outing—the first in nearly 15 years.

“Good Evening, Wow, guess who dropped by my office before our @tblightning game tonight! @tomcruise. I was slightly starstruck but kept it cool, and he said he felt the same! 😂😂,” the retired linebacker captioned the photo, where he stood between Cruise and Connor, both beaming at the camera. Bella also made a brief appearance in the group photo, peeking from behind.
