Tom Cruise has performed increasingly more dangerous stunts as his career has progressed, with his death-defying feats becoming a staple of the Mission: Impossible franchise. Doing the rounds to promote the upcoming seventh instalment, the actor talked about what might be his most dangerous stunt yet: riding a motorcycle off the edge of a cliff.
"If the wind was too strong, it would blow me off the ramp," he revealed, explaining just how dangerous it was even after months of training. "The helicopter [filming the stunt] was a problem, because I didn’t want to be hammering down that ramp at top speed and get hit by a stone."
"Or if I departed in a weird way, we didn’t know what was going to happen with the bike. I had about six seconds once I departed the ramp to pull the chute and I don’t want to get tangled in the bike," he continued. "If I do, that’s not going to end well."
Thankfully, the stunt obviously went well as Cruise was able to talk about it, but we can't wait to see it on the big screen.
