Simon Pegg commends Tom Cruise’s fearless stunts

“It's extraordinary, he has no fear”

Mission Impossible

Simon Pegg this week appeared on that staple of squawky daytime TV Loose Women, and talked about his experiences shooting the fourth Mission: Impossible movie.

Which mostly consisted of bigging up Hollywood pal Tom Cruise, who we all last saw dangling off Burj Khalifa tower in Dubai for a death-defying stunt.

“I was there watching him doing it, which was terrifying, because it was like being in a plane,” effuses Pegg.

“[It was at the] top of the building. It's extraordinary, and he has no fear. He just looked out and looked back in with a big smile on his face, like, ‘Here we go!’ And he was running round the side.”

Pegg has reprised his role of IMF Technician Benji Dunn in the fourth Mission: Impossible film, having also made a memorable appearance in 2006’s Mission: Impossible III.

Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol opens 16 December, 2011.
