‘Okay,’ said James.

‘I just want you to know that I’m sorry,’ Tom said.

‘I would love it if you could lend me some money,’ James said.

‘I told you anything, James,’ Tom said. ‘Don’t worry.’

‘Then this works out great,’ James making light of his recent announcement that he will be leaving The Late Late Show next year after his contract ends.

After that skit, Tom, wearing a black polo shirt and black pants, came out and James told him that it had been four years since he was on the show and asked how he was doing.

‘It’s amazing to be here to see everyone and see you and be alive,’ Tom said. ‘It’s wonderful.’

No worries: 'I told you anything, James,' Tom said. 'Don't worry'

Tom appeared on the show with actress Monica Barbaro, 31, who appears with him in the new movie Top Gun: Maverick.

James asked Monica if she was nervous the first time she met Tom. She said she didn’t think she would get starstruck.

‘He was flying a F-18 for the first time and we’re all standing in a hallway,’ Monica said. ‘He walks down the hallway. Suddenly, I couldn’t feel my legs. He starts shaking hands in a circle. Okay I’m last. He shakes my hand and looks deep into my eyes and I forget my name.’

‘Are you aware of this effect that you have on people when you walk into a room?’ James asked.

‘No, I thought she was so cool,’ Tom said. ‘She was so poised.’

‘And frozen,’ Monica said.

James said that Tom’s life was extraordinary. He said last summer they were both in London and made a plan to get together.

‘I texted you,’ James said. ‘And you wrote back, ”Can I land my helicopter in your yard?” And I said well I’ll measure it out but my hunch is you can’t land a helicopter there. It’s very central in London. He wrote ”you would be surprised where I could land.”

James asked him where he landed.

‘In England they let you land in yards,’ Tom said. ‘I landed in the fields. I just land in people’s yards. Sometimes if I have a location. It’s England, they just let you do that.’

‘Wasn’t there a family in Warwickshire and you landed on their land?’ James asked.

‘Yes,’ Tom said.

England allowed: 'In England they let you land in yards,' Tom said. 'I landed in the fields. I just land in people's yards. Sometimes if I have a location. It's England, they just let you do that'

James asked if they knew he was landing and how it happened.

‘I don’t know,’ Tom said. ‘I think the location guy just said please come and land here because we had very … We were doing location scouts and I had to move around a lot during the day. I just landed in the yard and the family was there. They were lovely and liked helicopters.’

James asked if they knew he was landing and he said they didn’t.

‘So they get a phone call that says someone is going to land in your garden, is that okay? Or does the helicopter just land in their garden?’ James asked.

‘I think someone made that call,’ Tom said. ‘They seemed to know something was going to land there but they didn’t know it was me.’

Tom said the family was very interested in the helicopter.

‘I said why don’t you guys just go and fly my helicopter and we will take pictures of your yard and stuff like that,’ Tom said.

James said he asked Tom what he was doing after the show and he said he had his motorcycle there.

‘He said ”I’m just going to drive 200 miles that way. I’ve got a meeting”,’ James said. ‘Is there anything you can’t drive? How many different licenses do you have? ‘

‘Airplanes, commercial license jets, a bunch of different airplanes, motorcycles, parachutes, boats, I have my real estate license, mechanic license, scuba diving license,’ Tom said.

‘It would be amazing if you did have your real estate license. ‘I would love it if you had a side hustle.’

James asked Tom to explain the plot of the new Top Gun.

Multiple licenses: 'Airplanes, commercial license jets, a bunch of different airplanes, motorcycles, parachutes, boats, I have my real estate license, mechanic license, scuba diving license,' Tom said

‘Just years later, he’s a test pilot and he’s got a few things to learn,’ Tom said. ‘He is asked to come and Top Gun again and to teach a new group of Top Gun pilots for a mission.’

‘We took a lot of time finding the right people. The cast is amazing,’ Tom said. ‘Monica has just a natural intelligence and presence and talent to be able to play a female fighter pilot that graduated Top Gun. It’s very impressive.’

Tom said he spent a long time trying to figure out who to train the actors for the fighter pilot ejector training.

High praise: 'We took a lot of time finding the right people. The cast is amazing,' Tom said. 'Monica has just a natural intelligence and presence and talent to be able to play a female fighter pilot that graduated Top Gun. It's very impressive'

‘She never got sick in the airplane,’ Tom said of Monica. ‘She is impressive. They had to go up and I had to teach the actors about how to become pilots and fighter pilots that were flying them.’

‘I also took them through editing and lighting so when you were up there you knew how to start the cameras’ said Tom. ‘We didn’t have that much time with these aircraft because we were feathered in their training program. So they had to be absolutely spot on.’

James said that Tom actually took him up in a fighter jet in a segment that will air in a few weeks. He said he was very scared and asked Monica about her feelings.

‘You designed such an extensive program so by the time it came to filming the thing we were so comfortable in the planes we actually had to up the intensity,’ Monica said. ‘You had over prepared us.’

James gave everyone in the audience two tickets to see the movie in the theaters. James asked Tom about going to see Lady Gaga in concert in Vegas who is on the soundtrack to the movie.

‘She’s not just on the soundtrack she helped to compose the score,’ Tom said. ‘Last time I saw a live concert was Lady Gaga two years ago. I want to thank her when we were working on the final pieces.’

‘I saw her this weekend and she is extraordinary,’ Tom said. ‘There was something we were looking for and it wasn’t right and she presented her song to us and it just opened up the whole movie. She’s amazing. It just opened those doors to the emotional core of the film that we had. It’s like a moment and things just came together in such a beautiful way. That song that she had written just fell right in and was really the underlying score and the heartbeat of our film.’

‘She’s an actress, a jazz singer, a pop singer, her talent is just boundless,’ Tom said. ‘You will love the music in this movie.’

James asked Tom if he had any rom coms in his future.

‘You complete me,’ Tom said to James.

‘Don’t you dare,’ James said. ‘You had me at hello.’
