Tom Cruise repays kindness
Yen.com.gh recently reported that the movie star gave a UK family free ride in his helicopter after they graciously allowed him to land in their compound.
He was to land at a nearby airport, but it was closed.
His team approached Alison Webb's family, saying unnamed VIP would like to land in their compound.
They gladly obliged, not knowing the unnamed VIP was the Mission Impossible star.
Recounting the encounter with Cruise, Webb said she could hardly believe it.
“It turned out to be an incredible day. It was surreal, I still can't believe it happened,” she said.
