Some people think Tom Cruise, star of Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation, is genuinely insane. Not because he jumped on a couch once or believes in alien thetans from outer space or because of his maniacal enthusiasm, but because Tom Cruise loves to do his own stunts in movies, no matter how dangerous.
Every time Cruise signs up for a new flick, it seems like the 50-something-year-old, 5'7" actor has a true death wish. According to one stunt coordinator, Cruise is so dedicated to performing his own stunts that he'll threaten to exit a project if he's not allowed to do death-defying stunts himself.
True, there are plenty of actors who like to brush with danger when it comes to movie stunts, but that's when the stunt double steps in. There are only a handful of stars in Hollywood that are known for doing their own, and none is more famous or hands-on than Tom Cruise.
So for better or worse, here's a list of Cruise's craziest and most ridiculous stunts, all of which he did on his own. Vote up the coolest stunts Tom Cruise has ever performed.
