Tom Cruise's love for death-defying stunts is known to everyone, thanks to his Mission Impossible films. This not only pulls the crowd to each and every movie of Tom Cruise, it also sets this actor apart from the rest.

When most of the action stars prefer to go with a body double or rich computer graphics to make a practically challenging shot look real, Tom likes to do it all by his own. Similar to what he did for one of his upcoming films, The Mummy.

According to the director Alex Kurtzman, "there was a lot of barfing" in that shot where Tom along with the actress Anabelle Wallis needed to film a shot going weightless in the mid-air inside a plane.

This shot required a plane to fly very high into the clouds and then suddenly drop at a high speed maintaining a steep angle in order to simulate zero gravity throwing everything inside a plane. However, Tom had the option to film that shot with the help of CGI, but he wanted it for real.

"Tom is renowned for making sure that the audience gets the most out of their cinematic experience. So when it came to doing this sequence we had options to do it on a stage." Said Anabelle Wallis.

"Tom, in his glory and slight madness, was adamant that he wanted it to be done on a plane in zero gravity." The actress added further.
