For this next addition to the mission impossible series, Tom Cruise insisted to do his own stunts in order to make it look more realistic. Actors doing their own stunts is a thing of the past, when special effects are making everything so easy.
There is still a lot of effort, camera tricks, editing and safety precautions involved to accomplish such a feat. Special contact lenses were needed to avoid any damage to his eyes.
We commend him for showing what a true action superstar is all about. Not a lot of guys can say they had chance to hang outside a plane @ 165MPH. Impressive! Mr. Tom Cruise…
