Tom Cruise is definitely a rarity in Hollywood. He is one of the few actors that will actually perform his own stunts.
Cruise was performing a stunt scene for the latest Mission Impossible movie where he was jumping from one building to the next with the assistance of a safety harness. Footage caught from TMZ shows him running off of some scaffolding, mistiming his leap and then crashing into the side of the second building.
The actor was able to pull himself up with the help of his safety harness and was seen limping away heavily.
The extent of Cruise's injuries are not yet known, but Cruise was able to walk away from it despite limping heavily.
