Tom Cruise has wished fellow Hollywood star George Clooney well following the dad-of-two’s scary scooter crash earlier this week.
George, 57, was hospitalised after he came off his bike at 60mph and was catapulted 20ft into the air after colliding with a car in Sardinia, Italy, on Tuesday.
Speaking to Access at the world premiere of Mission: Impossible – Fallout in Paris, Tom, 56, playfully told Clooney “be careful, be careful, man!” when asked if he had any advice.
Tom, who is known for doing all his own stunts, added: “He’s great on a motorcycle and I hope he’s OK. I really, George, I didn’t know until I was here but I hope you’re OK buddy.”
The Minority Report star is himself a big motorcycle fan and was asked if George’s accident had made him think twice about his bike.
“Never, no never,” he said. “The bike will retire me, I won’t retire the bike.”
George is in Sardinia filming Catch 22, a TV adaptation of Joseph Heller’s book of the same name.
The miniseries will be his first television role since 2009, when he made his last appearance as Dr Doug Ross on ER.
George’s publicist said he was expected to make a full recovery, although pictures of the actor showed him looking looking unsteady on his feet as he boarded his private jet after being released from hospital.
The Oscar-winning star was comfortably dressed in a pair of linen trousers and a white polo shirt that revealed cuts and scratches to his arm.
George was accompanied by wife Amal, who was clutching their one-year-old daughter Ella in her arms.
After leaving the golf buggy, a frail looking George received some help from staff as he slowly made his way up the plane steps, clutching the rails as he went.
