Tom Cruise has revealed his wife Katie Holmes is fine with his death-defying stunts in films.

The Mission Impossible star gets caught up in a bull run and jumps onto a car speeding at 60mph for his latest movie, Knight And Day, which also stars Cameron Diaz.

"She's used to me doing this stuff; certain moments like the bull run (in Spain), she's just like, TMI (too much information), there are certain things I'll tell her afterwards," he told Entertainment Tonight.

The couple's four-year-old daughter Suri also came on set.

"Suri was there when I jumped from the platform on the car at 60mph. They know I do everything to keep safe," he added.

Tom, who tries to do as many of his own stunts as possible, used to work on his moves as a child.

"I used to set up jumps and jump over gullies and things like that. I would set it up with boards, then find a steep hill and get enough speed. My sisters used to be like, 'You're going to kill yourself, Tommy'," he recalled.

The star added: "I remember, I went right through the board. I went so fast that the board split in two, and then I was scraping across the gravel and bleeding. It was like a comedy routine."

Tom added: "Now I tell my kids, 'If you're going to do this stuff, let me teach you how to do it correctly'."
