Tom Cruise has been known to leap from tall buildings with a single bound and that includes museums. He was spotted filming his latest “Mission Impossible” atop the Tate Modern museum in London. Cruise is known for shooting his own stunts. But not all of them end well.
The 55-year-old actor broke his ankle on the “Mission Impossible” set last year after one of his signature leaps fell short.
For his latest film, Cruise was spotted standing on top of the 325-foot chimney tower of the modern art gallery on the bank of the River Thames. And, yes, he jumped off the building.
“It was crazy,he was up there for ages,” one witness told London’s Independent newspaper.
“He was wearing a big coat, but it was so cold and windy. It just goes to show, I suppose, that he really does his own stunts,” the eye witness said.
Tom, however, was wearing a safety harness as noted by a number of sharp-eyed social media sleuths.
Filming of the sixth installment in the “Mission Impossible” franchise, was delayed last year after the actor injured himself while performing a jump between two high-rise buildings in London.
But he was back on set in January and was spotted sprinting across the top of London’s Blackfriars Station, chasing a helicopter.
Tom recently revealed he spent 10 hours a day in rehab after breaking his ankle.
“It’s still broken but I’m doing well,” he said in a recent interview. “It’s not fully healed but we are shooting and we have a release date so I just have to keep going. ”
