Connelly praises Cruise for Top Gun motorcycle scene
Los Angeles: Actor Jennifer Connelly has praised Hollywood star Tom Cruise for his driving skills after they recreated the iconic motorcycle scene from Top Gun for the sequel.
The 48-year-old actor was photographed holding on to Cruise, 56, from the back on a black motorcycle as he drove. The scene is similar to the one featured in the 1986 classic in which Maverick and his love interest Charlotte 'Charlie' Blackwood, portrayed by Kelly McGillis, go for a ride.
"That was a fast motorcycle. He is an excellent driver. I was marvelling at it actually because we had this scene. We were doing that and we raced down the street and we pull up at the house that's supposed to be my house (in the film) and, like, not once was it even half of an inch off.
They are set to star in Top Gun: Maverick scheduled to release in June 2020.
