Sir Lewis Hamilton has revealed that he has been offered the role of Tom Cruise star in the latest Top Gun: Maverick.
The seven-time Formula 1 world champion revealed the news in a recent Vanity Fair interview, where he opened up about various obstacles during his life and career.
It turns out that he was on the verge of becoming an actor as Cruise offered him a role in the film, something that Hamilton was very excited about and would have gladly accepted since he is a fan of the original film. However, he had to turn it down due to his driving commitments.
“Actually, I’m Tom’s friend [Cruise],” said the Mercedes driver. “One of the nicest people you will ever meet. He invited me to his session years ago when he was doing ‘Edge of Tomorrow’, and we became friends over time.
“When I heard that the second one was coming out, I said, ‘Oh my god, I have to ask him’. I said ‘I don’t care what the role is. I’m going to sweep something, clean up behind’,” he recalled.
Hamilton, who was given the part as a fighter pilot, realized that we would not have enough time to combine it with his careful preparation for the races. He said: “I am a person who does not want to be perfect. “There just wasn’t time.”
He added that it was “the most annoying phone call I think I’ve ever had,” declining the offer.
Hamilton will team up with Brad Pitt to make a new Formula 1 film, with Hamilton serving as a producer on the project. The film will be helmed by Top Gun: Maverick director Joseph Kosinski.
Released in May of this year, Top Gun: Maverick has already become the highest-grossing film of 2022, taking in nearly $1.3 billion at the global box office.
