Regardless if you like Tom Cruise or not there is no denying that he is one of the biggest actions stars on the planet earth. He is also very big on doing all his own stunts, a trait that most action hero’s shy away from. Recently Tom Cruise and co-star Cameron Diaz were in England pimping out their new movie “Night and Day” when they decided to stop by the Top Gear test track where they did a few laps with the Stig.
Show writer Richard Porter explains:
“Back in 2002 when we were planning New Top Gear, we used to reflect on the newly minted idea of a star in a Reasonably Priced Car and cackle quietly to ourselves. “Tom Cruise!” we would smirk. “Tom Cruise in a crappy Korean hatchback!”
That was the gag: massive A-list celebrities finding themselves shoehorned into the kind of car they’d normally never be seen dead in. The whole thing was deliberately preposterous. And so, frankly, was our dream of getting the world’s biggest movie actor into an affordable mid-range car.”
Well now it seems the dream is a reality because Cruise and Diaz are said to be gracing Top Gear during this weekends airing.
