Tom Cruise’s Big Stunt Nearly Went Wrong

Cruise explained that on one occasion, despite their preparations it nearly ended in disaster saying.

“When my chute opens and you can see it in EPK when I’m in the bowl and I was testing the wind in that bowl and I jumped out of the helicopter… you can see when I opened it, I was in the wrong position and I opened the parachute, and the parachute turned into the side of the mountain.”

“I could see just at the last second, I was very close. My chute was pretty close to the side of the mountain. So you really have to watch every aspect of that to make sure that nothing goes wrong,” He added that he was “thinking about a few things” in the moment.
