Cruise has nerves of steel

Tom Cruise gets a tanker driven over himTom Cruise has gotten himself some bad press recently what with the weird, hard–to–believe marriage/pregnancy with Katie Holmes and the wrong–side–of–eccentric pronouncements about depression and appropriate treatment. But my word, whatever his dodgy beliefs and peculiar personal life, I watched this clip and I take my hat off to the man; he has nerves of steel.

It's a behind–the–scenes clip from the making of his new Mission Impossible 3 movie, and it shows, as far as I can tell, an absolutely genuine sequence in which he lies down in the middle of the road and waits for a tanker to drive towards him, jack–knife and pass right over his body. If you'd seen it in the film itself, you'd assume that the tanker or the body or both were all done inside the computer, but I'm pretty sure that this isn't what's happening here; it's for real. Whatever he earns for the movie, it wouldn't be enough to get me to do that.
