Tom Cruise is an ''anomaly'' in Hollywood.
The 50-year-old actor is famous for doing his own stunts in his action movies and stunt driver Joey Box, who worked with Tom on 'Jack Reacher', says Tom is great to work with because of his action skills.
Speaking at Paramount Studios in Los Angeles, Joey exclusively told BANG Showbiz: ''Tom is an anomaly, I've never worked with another actor who has the acumen for stunts that he does. He's done so much and he's trained for so many movies and so many different types of stunt work, fighting, fire, explosions, car chases, motorcycles.
''He has such a good solid foundation of skills that you're not really putting him in that much danger like you would with another actor when you're working out the stunts. He's more like one of the stunt guys.
''Tom is a very safe guy, he knows that he can put himself in these dramatic situations without injuring himself, there is a lot of skill to it.
While Tom is a perfectionist, Joey says the Hollywood veteran is always quick to praise the team around him.
He explained: ''He is a taskmaster and there is a certain level that you need to be at to work with him. You have to get it done but he is so appreciative of everyone he works with, he surrounds himself with the best of the best and he knows he couldn't make the movies that he does at this level without them.''
'Jack Reacher' is available on DVD, Blu-ray and Digital Download in the UK from 22 April.
