Detailing the many ways F-35 pilots are more physically attractive than the actor, the president said: “The face is equal, maybe slightly better, the body’s bigger and stronger, they can definitely fight – they’re the real deal.”
U.S. President Donald Trump says F-35 pilots are “better looking than Tom Cruise and with better bodies.”
“You’ve got to see them” the Republican leader told a crowd of supporters at Battle Creek rally in Michigan discussing a meeting with U.S. Air Force (USAF) personnel.
“They’re just like central casting” he added, referencing a Hollywood talent agency used by the president as a benchmark for beauty.
He told the audience at the rally: “We have the F-35s – it’s stealth – and I was at one of the areas where they’re displaying it and I went up to the pilots and, honestly, they’re better looking than Tom Cruise”.
“Good movie” he said, in an apparent reference to Top Gun. “Good guy, too by the way.”

After more than thirty years of service as one of the Navy’s top aviators, Pete “Maverick” Mitchell (Tom Cruise) is where he belongs, pushing the envelope as a courageous test pilot and dodging the advancement in rank that would ground him. When he finds himself training a detachment of Top Gun graduates for a specialized mission the likes of which no living pilot has ever seen, Maverick encounters Lt. Bradley Bradshaw (Miles Teller), call sign: “Rooster,” the son of Maverick’s late friend and Radar Intercept Officer (RIO) Lt. Nick Bradshaw, aka “Goose.”
The movie is slated to hit theaters on Jun. 26, 2020.
