Hands down, these are the ballsiest Tom Cruise stunts in movies

Movie: Jack Reacher
Year 2012
Stunt: The crotch kick.

In Jack Reacher, Tom plays an investigator whose greatest skill is basically to kick ass. In other words, he often gets into fist fights whether he wants to or not. While shooting one particular scene and doing take after take, Tom had to kick one of the actor’s crotch many many times until the final take was done. Tom said: “Yeah, after about 50 times in, my foot was swelling, I kept having to loosen my shoe.”
