Cruise hires luxury helicopter in London

Posted on Dec 03, 07:45PM | IANS

Actor Tom Cruise has hired a luxurious chopper to help him fly around in London, while he shoots for his new film "All You Need Is Kill" here.

The limited edition helicopter is described as a "living room in the sky" and boasts cream leather interior and noise-minimising walls to guarantee a quiet flight, reports thesun.co.uk.

In the film, Cruise plays the role of a soldier fighting a war against aliens. The 50-year-old actor recently brought London's Trafalgar Square to a standstill as he filmed helicopter and tank scenes in the busy tourist destination.

Despite complaints, a spokesman for the City of Westminster insisted the disruption was worth it because the movie "raises the profile of the city and is good for tourism".
