His recent release Mission: Impossible- Fallout is running successfully at the box-office. The 56-year-old actor is as fit and handsome as any 25-year-old new comer. He started his career in the year 1981 when he was merely 19-years-old and since then, he has not stopped.

And that’s why his movies always turns out to be a blockbuster. Something similar happened with his latest release too. For filming Mission: Impossible- Fallout, he jumped from 25,000 feet for about 100 times just to get the stunt right. You might find it bizarre, but it is true.

Tom jumped from 25,000 ft. to 30,000 ft. for about 100 times through the air at the speed of 220 miles per hour. He made these jumps with the help of oxygen mask.  He made these jumps from C-17 military plane while training for the stunts to get the scene right.
