In the midst of all his crazy behavior, it's sometimes easy to forget that Tom Cruise can be funny in a laughing with and not just a laughing at way.
We were reminded of Tom's comedic timing once again when he appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, his first interview since splitting with Katie Holmes, to talk about his latest movie Jack Reacher. During the chat, he revealed that he injured himself during filming in the most bizarre manner possible. As in, we're pretty sure nobody has heard of this happening before.
It turns out that Tom injured his foot by repeatedly kicking someone in the nuts! (No, that wasn't a typo). "There's a scene where I'm kicking a guy in the balls, the testicles. It was a human being, [but] no testicles were injured in the making of the film!" he said. "We had to do the take over and over again, and the first 10 times it was like 'Yeah!' After about 50 times in, my foot was swelling...I kept having to loosen my shoe."
Seriously though, it's Tom Cruise. If anyone is going to get injured in a truly bizarre manner, it's going to be him. Luckily, Tom's foot (and that guy's nuts) have since recovered.
Jack Reacher hits theaters on December 21.
What do you think of Tom's truly weird injury?
