The actor was interviewed by TMZ in a pickup terminal at LAX and Pullman wasn’t shy in sharing that he “puked so much” while filming the movie’s flight scenes.
“I’ll be the first to admit it,” he quipped, stating that he never threw up “on camera.”
“The real ‘Top Gun’ pilots don’t puke,” he said while walking and talking, further explaining that the provided mechanisms for puking included a “little plastic bag and a little boot with powder that made it all… [presumably dissolve into whatever matter].” Pullman’s explanation was cut short when he had to enter an elevator in the parking garage.
Earlier in the conversation, Pullman said he “can’t talk” about the specifics of what flight school entailed, citing a nondisclosure but maintained that he enjoyed it “so much.”
The “Bad Times at the El Royale” actor also explained that fans of the film, which stars Tom Cruise, will “understand” and appreciate the wait when they see it in “IMAX.” The film is currently slated for a November 19 theater release.
“There’s nothing like working with a bunch of great actors and with Tom Cruise who is the best movie star around, you know,” he said, adding, “He’s like a force to be reckoned with.”
