Say what you want about Tom Cruise. He’s weird, he’s to Scientology what Scott Walker is to Koch Industries, but after 25 years of being hooked up to an E-Meter, Tom Cruise no longer understands mortal terror nor death. In Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, Tom Cruise wanted to climb to the top of Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world (163 stories). When the production insurance company said nah bro, Tom Cruise said “fuck the bullshit” and had them fired. Then climbed it. In the upcoming Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, Tom Cruise hangs off the side of a plane. While it’s flying. As you watch this, please understand that this took eight takes. Eight. He did this eight times. If this was me, the shit coming from the back of the plane would have looked like a chemtrail wearing blackface.
