Wallis looked stunning in a low-cut, V-neck line dress, that sparkled from head to toe in gold. Her co-star Sofia Boutella wore a sophisticated white and tan gown, while Tom Cruise looked dashing in his usual dark suit and dark button-down, no tie.
“[It was a] dream come true,” said Wallis of working with Cruise. And of her cast members she added, “They like to give it but I like to give it right back.”
In fact, Wallis claims that Cruise actually saved her life while on set after he insisted on doing their own stunts in a plane crash filmed for the movie. “It was just a crazy couple of days. There was an airplane crash sequence in the script and they were like, ‘You know, we’re going to build a set and do this and do that using CGI.’ Tom said, ‘No, we’re going to do it for real,'” Wallis recalls, telling that they shot the scene one of four planes able to give a zero-gravity effect to passengers.
“You can’t prepare for it and it’s quite unnerving because Tom had never done anything like that before, the stunt team had never done it,” she continued. “I had to put a parachute pack on me and the pack got stuck. There was a thing wrapped tight around my neck and I was like, ‘Oh my God! I’m stuck and the gravity is going to return and it’s going to choke me,’ ” Wallis says. “It was this amazing Tom moment where I looked and I couldn’t get myself un-hooked and said, ‘Tom! I’m stuck, I’m stuck!’
“The plane was coming out of weightlessness about to hit gravity and I heard the countdown ‘5, 4, 3 …’ At three I said, ‘I’m stuck!’ and Tom was like, ‘Annabelle, don’t worry I got you,’ and he ran and freed me and we returned to earth and he’d saved my life. So I feel very indebted to him. It was literally around my neck choking me, then with two or three seconds left, there he was — the hero.”
