Behind-the-Scenes Footage of Tom Cruise Doing His Own Stunts Is Pretty Insane

It’s no secret that Tom Cruise is known for doing his own stunts. But what’s less known is that sometimes those stunts don’t go exactly as planned.

Cruise was in London over the weekend to film the sixth installment of the Mission Impossible franchise, where he’s reprising his role as Ethan Hunt. He’s been doing many of his own stunts for all the Mission Impossible movies, and this one is no exception.

This time, though, TMZ has video of a stunt that went wrong, where Cruise was leaping from building to building in a harness looking like a badass. One of the daring leaps goes a little bit wrong, and Cruise can be seen slamming his stomach into the edge of a building. Ouch.

In the video, Cruise can be seen limping away from the rigging, then collapsing, then limping a little further before members of the crew and safety team get to him and lead him away.

The incident reportedly happened Sunday, and the extent of Cruise’s injuries and whether he has recovered are unknown. He’s always been tough performing his own stunts, though, so we can only hope he’s OK now.

This came about a month after Cruise shared a video on Twitter of himself doing his own stunts on The Mummy, which he’s promoting now.
