He's a real-life superhero!
Tom Cruise risked his life performing stunts for Mission: Impossible 4 in Dubai over the weekend: the star, 48, dangled almost 2,717 feet in the air near the top of skyscraper Burj Kahlifa, the tallest building in the world.
"There's always that adrenalin before you do a stunt," the death-defying star told the Daily Record this past summer. "I want to entertain the audience, and part of making these movies is doing my own stunts."
Mission: Impossible 4 -- in which Cruise plays agent Ethan Hunt -- hits theaters early next year.
