Tom Cruise was left furious after a crew member on his latest film set passed wind during a minute's silence. A source on the set told Britain's Daily Star newspaper,

"Fortunately the mystery gassy man didn't completely ruin the touching gesture. Quite rightly, Tom is furious. We were filming at the Bendler Block in Germany where the anti-Nazis were executed.

The source said Cruise decided to ask for the minute's silence to show respect for the deceased and appease the German government, who only allowed the movie to be filmed if post-war Germany was shown in a positive light.

The source added, "So for somebody to pass wind in a situation like that is unforgivable."

Yes, no farts on the set please. Offenders will be severely punished in the traditional scientology way. I’ll let you think about what that is.
