July 2010, Cameron Diaz and Tom cruise are on the cover of First to present Night and day, entertainment staged by James Mangold, the director of Cop Land, Walk the Line and more recently of the last two Wolverine battle of the immortal and Logan. Night and day is an action comedy where romance and humor are as important as physical stunts: “This balance is extremely difficult to find, believe me, Cruise commented to Mathieu Carratier. It takes a crazy job. It’s for this reason that we see very few films of this kind. “ The project especially marked the reunion between the two stars eight years after the drama Vanilla Sky, where Cameron’s character ends up trying to kill Tom’s! “I’m sure she brought me the Night and Day script to be forgiven.”, had fun before returning without surprise to their many action scenes. “It may not show, but deep down, I’m a 14 year old boy”, exclaimed Diaz, before recounting an unforgettable anecdote about the filming of a motorcycle sequence in the heart of Cadiz fairy:

CAMERON: “I was behind Tom on a motorcycle slaloming between bulls jostling and eventually climbing on top of each other while people were thrown against the walls …

CAMERON: You told me to hang on!
TOM: I kept saying to myself, ‘You will not fall with Cameron Diaz on your motorbike, you will not fall with Cameron Diaz on your motorbike …’

Tom Cruise re-enacts all of his legendary roles

The director explained for his part that this comedy represented in 2010 “exactly the film Tom had to make at the time. The one we all want to see him in. I told him frankly that, for five or six years, his choices had tended too much towards action and drama with super serious films that completely neglected his comical, eccentric fiber. (…) I’m not sure that Tom would approve but, for me, it’s as if Ethan Hunt (the hero of Impossible mission, editor’s note) found himself facing the quarantine crisis. As if he suddenly wondered: ‘But what does all this mean? No one likes what I do. I save the world and everyone doesn’t care. Besides, I have no life. ‘ (Laughter.) A woman then enters her life, and he has no idea how he will handle the situation. If it had been a James Bond girl thinking only of making love in exotic countries, he might have known what to do. But this girl loves him for what he is, and it goes beyond him. “
