Tom Cruise arrived at the Cannes Film Festival on Tuesday, greeted with whoops and screams from a crowd gathered to catch a glimpse of the star, who is attending the event for the first time in three decades.
“Thomas! Thomas!” screamed fans standing outside the palm-fringed festival venue as he stepped out of a car with blacked-out windows wearing a smart blue suit, sunglasses and slightly disheveled hair.
Some had been camping since breakfast, with stools and stepladders.
Cruise is promoting his new Top Gun sequel, “Top Gun: Maverick,” with a big ticket giveaway at this year’s festival, which runs from May 17-28.
