The 53-year-old Hollywood A-lister is known for performing his own stunts, and continued the trend with an all-action display reprising the role of spy Ethan Hunt in the latest 'Mission: Impossible' film.

On the red carpet in London last night, Cruise attributed the gruelling stunt scenes -many of them filmed on the streets of London - to years of practice.

He said: "I have trained my whole life, constantly, whether it's drama or action.

"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."

Swedish-born actress Rebecca Ferguson, who plays love interest Isla Faust in 'Rogue Nation', described her co-star as "the stunt king".
