Tom Cruise Unprepared For Jumping Off Building

Thursday, December 15, 2011

TOM Cruise was unprepared when he had to jump off the world’s tallest building for new movie Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol.

The 49-year-old actor — who has reprized his role as agent Ethan Hunt in the fourth film of the franchise — says he wanted to perform all of his own stunts, including leaping from the top of Dubai’s Burj Khalifa tower.

“The first time I was out I had to test when I fly off the building,” he said.

“It was something that I couldn’t train for, I just had to figure it out”.

Tom says he spent many hours preparing to climb the building in order to jump off it.

“It was about eight or nine hours a day so I would do speed climbing and take about an hour and just climb up and down without stopping, just to build it up,” he said.

Although he did sustain a few injuries, Tom insists they were nothing serious, saying: “I am recovered.”

With filming behind him, Tom — who has a five-year-old daughter, Suri, with actress wife Katie Holmes — says he will be concentrating on relaxing this Christmas.

“I’m with the family, we are gonna hang out, play lots of games, you know, watch lots of movies,” he said.
