While you may think Cruise’s most dangerous deed was jumping on Oprah’s couch, shouting to the heavens about his love (first, don’t put your shoes on Oprah’s couch. Second, don’t challenge the heavens when it comes to amour), he’s well known to do a lot more than that.

Cruise might as well be the action hero. Movie after movie he continues to impress. Don’t believe us? You can watch the behind-the-scenes video of Cruise climbing the Burj Khalifa for Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol here, but be forewarned, it's going to give you a case of vertigo.

He’s learned how to fight with samurai swords in The Last Samurai, led a chase on a motorcycle for Knight and Day, and flew his own jets in Top Gun.

As if that wasn’t enough, he literally hung off of an airplane for Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation.
