Tom Cruise feared first stunt

Jan 25 2013, 9:29am CST | by

Tom Cruise thought he was going to be shot when he filmed 'Taps'.

The 50-year-old actor was only 19 when he appeared in the drama as weapon-loving Cadet Captain David Shawn, and was "terrified" the stunts could go wrong and it would be the last movie he ever worked on.

Tom recalled to W magazine: "In one scene, I was firing a machine gun out a window, and I looked down and there was a guy shooting back at me. This was my first experience with stunts - and an expert marksman was aiming at me!

"I didn't want to look like I was dumb, but between takes I pulled the guy aside and said, 'Have you done this before? You're not going to shoot me, are you?' I was terrified that my first big part would be my last."

The 'Jack Reacher' star has grown to love high-adrenaline stunts, and he admitted earlier this month he will "never tire" of performing his own stunt, and enjoys trying to keep besting the dare-devil scenes he has shot before.

He said: "When I'm doing stunt movies you always have some sort of injury. Even with the high-speed car crashes that we had - I never tire of it actually.

"It's really fun and I keep thinking about what it's going to look like and that it's going to entertain an audience. So it's fun doing it and trying to figure out, can we do it? How far can we push it?

"When I start working on a piece of material I get very excited about the potential of doing something that hadn't been seen before, that I haven't done before."

Iron Man competitions are all about stamina, so it comes as no surprise that Tony Stark himself Robert Downey Jr. has for the second year in a row been named the Highest Paid Actor in Hollywood! Forbes' annual list is out, and RDJ is on top, making an estimated $75 million this year, and that's almost all just for his work on Iron Man 3!

It was only a few months ago that analysts had, foolishly it would seem, branded Disney's live-action adventure 'Maleficent' as a flop, and that was even before it had been released in cinemas. However, after a strong opening and consistent debut week and beyond, the stattos were left scratching their heads at the impressive $697 million it has made to date, from a $180 million budget. But what ...

Ischia Global Film & Music Fest - Day 8
When director Paul Haggis quit Scientology, the church labeled him a suppressive person and vowed to destroy his life. Which seems like an idle threat until you see him in these pictures handing Lindsay Lohan the Biggest Comeback Award at the Ischia Global Fest, so clearly these people weren’t fucking around. There’s destroying a man’s life, and then there’s crushing his soul to the point where he realizes there’s more dignity in jerking off Tom Cruise ...
