Watch: Tom Cruise's Dangerous Real-Life Stunts


Taking a break from the post-production work on Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, Tom Cruise headed to the Willow Springs race track in southern California to live out some real-life action scenes.

Cruise took the Red Bull Formula 1 race car around the track and quickly had a good handling on the track. After tackling the winding race track, Cruise jumped into the Red Bull helicopter and performed flips and barrel rolls.
