In the clip shared by ABC News, we hear Zelensky tell the “Mission Impossible” star, “You’re good looking. Like in a movie.”

“It pays the rent,” Cruise responded to a room full of laughter.

Zelensky has been in the news recently for communication he had with President Donald Trump in which the commander-in-chief asked the leader to “look into” former Vice President Joe Biden.

Last week, the White House released an un-redacted transcript of the call after Democrats pushed for impeachment against president, claiming that Trump had threatened to withhold aid from Ukraine until an investigation was launched into Biden.

During the visit, the leader didn’t mention Trump but did mention “that the Ukrainian Parliament had recently passed a law on compensation for foreign filmmakers in Ukraine.”

This action the office hopes “will promote active development of the film industry and give a boost to international co-production.”

There is still no word yet on what the “Top Gun” star’s next project is, but you can be we can hardly wait!
