Tom Cruise has put his eye-watering stunts down to long working hours as he attended the UK premiere of Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation.
The 53-year-old Hollywood A-lister is known for performing his own stunts, and continued the trend with an all-action display as spy Ethan Hunt in the fifth instalment of the Mission: Impossible franchise.
Appearing on the red carpet at the London Imax, Cruise attributed the gruelling stunt scenes - many of them filmed on the streets of London - to years of practice.
"I have trained my whole life, constantly, whether it's drama or action. I don't sleep much and I love what I do so I'm working many long hours. I usually will break the film down in sequences - I work with the stunt team to train and train.

"I've been doing it for so long, and I never take anything for granted. When we come up with things, there's so many on every film I can't include them all." Cruise said. "We have fun."
Asked about a long-awaited sequel to Top Gun, made almost 30 years earlier, Cruise said there were no plans in place.
"I know they've [producer Jerry Bruckheimer] talked about it and there's no commitment to it," he said. "It'd be fun, I'd like to get back in those jets."
