The concept of having a stunt double for actors is nothing new; however, there are some actors who prefer doing all the stunts themselves. That they don’t depend on a stuntman to shoot difficult scenes is what possibly makes us fall for them over and over again. One such handsome actor who is known for performing his own stunts on the sets is 55-year-old actor Tom Cruise. Having said that, apart from the pressure of performing stunts properly the actors are often thrown in the risk of getting hurt or injured, and Cruise who is currently busy shooting for his upcoming movie ‘Mission Impossible 6′, learned it the hard way after he got ended up crashing into a wall.

Cruise, who was secured to a wired harness, was filming a difficult scene where he had to jump from one building to another. However, it looks like he misjudged a leap and ended up crashing (not once but twice) into the brick wall in London, where the scene was being filmed. Although it’s not clear how bad the injury is but after the first hit, he was seen limping while walking away, before being helped by the crew members. In the second attempt he was hanging midair before pulling himself up the rooftop.
The sixth installment of ‘Mission Impossible’ is slated to release on July 27, 2018 and will also star Rebecca Ferguson, Vanessa Kirby, Henry Cavill, Simon Pegg, Alec Baldwin, and Michelle Monaghan among others. The movie is being directed by Christopher McQuarrie who has earlier worked with Cruise on ‘Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation’. While we hope for Cruise to have a speedy recovery, we can’t help but say that waiting for Ethan Hunt to be back in action is getting harder with each passing day.
