‘It’s absolutely stunning’: Tom Cruise gives a shout out to South Africa via Tshisalive
During his acceptance speech for the David O. Selznick Achievement Award at the recent Producers Guild of America Awards held in Los Angeles, American actor Tom Cruise made a special mention of South Africa.
The 60-year-old Hollywood legend has returned to the United States after filming some scenes in South Africa for a new Mission Impossible movie.
“I just got back from filming in South Africa. It’s an absolutely stunning country. And there’s a beautiful philosophy, it’s ubuntu that originated there and it is an idea that humanity is based on a plural not a singular and ubuntu means, essentially, I am because we are,” he said to rousing applause at the end of his speech.
Cruise is not shy to show his love for the country and thanked his fans against the backdrop of “stunning” South Africa before jumping off an aircraft last year.
“This is by far the most dangerous thing we’ve ever attempted,” the star said at the time.
