The daredevil actor once revealed the thrilling details of the breath-taking mountain bike jump off a cliff in Norway during a chat with talk show host Jimmy Kimmel. Cruise nonchalantly discussed the meticulous preparations that went into ensuring his safety, right down to taping his shoelaces. "Even my shoelaces were taped," he quipped, emphasizing the level of caution taken to avoid any potential entanglements during the high-flying adventure.

The Countdown to Disaster: Six Seconds to Spare

With a mere six seconds to spare before hitting the ground, Cruise explained that he had to flawlessly deploy his parachute while freefalling through the air. And despite the intense pressure, he made it clear that he wasn't "counting the six." Such a death-defying act undoubtedly required nerves of steel, and Cruise demonstrated once again that he doesn't rely on stunt doubles.

Relentless Training and Unparalleled Preparation

Surviving a stunt of this magnitude requires relentless training and meticulous attention to detail, as Cruise emphasized in an another video released by Paramount Pictures few months ago. "You train and drill every little aspect over and over and over again," he stated. By the time the scene was shot on location, Cruise had already amassed an astonishing record of over 500 skydives and 13,000 motocross jumps.
