AceShowbiz - Tom Cruise felt "really angry" after breaking his ankle in a rooftop leap while shooting "Mission: Impossible - Fallout". The actor introduced the film's new trailer at CinemaCon in Las Vegas earlier this week beg April 23 and told reporters he hated having to halt filming as he recovered from his injury, which he sustained on set in London last year.
"[I stick my foot out] a hair too long," he told Entertainment Tonight. "I was really angry". "[It was out] just a split second too long, and I fractured the talus, and I knew instantly. I said, 'It's broken!' "
The injury kept Cruise away from the set for months, and he admits he was nervous about the initial healing time, as doctors informed him he'd be off his feet for nine months.
"I really tried to work hard," he said. "I worked 10 hours a day on rehab, seven days a week. I had all the running left [to do] in the movie, so when you look at the film, I actually have a broken foot... The things I do, I do it to entertain people... I just thought, 'I'm going to do it no matter what. I'm going to come back and I'll be able to run. I gotta finish this movie and I have release dates and audiences, and I'm going to get it done. ' "
"Mission: Impossible - Fallout" is released on July 27.
