Tom Cruise - Tom Cruise 'better than most stunt men'

Tom Cruise is ''better than most stunt men''.

The 50-year-old actor is famous for doing his own stunts in his action movies and Rob Alonzo, assistant stunt coordinator on 'Jack Reacher' - in which Tom plays the title character, a drifter and former Military Police Corps officer - believes Tom is more competent than most professionals.

Speaking at Paramount Studios in Los Angeles, Rob exclusively told BANG Showbiz: ''Tom is so well rounded, he's better than most stunt men. He's an incredible driver, an incredible fighter and stunt performer. He flies planes, he knows how to ride horses, he rides motorcylces, so any director would be lucky to have a guy like that because they can keep the camera on him the whole time and it's more engaging.''

Rob also revealed Tom insists on doing his own stunts because he wants the best moviegoing experience possible for the audience.

He explained: ''Tom does his own stunts on everything, he won't allow a stuntman to do it for him, primarily because he knows that the audience is smart. That type of commitment and dedication is incredible. With Tom, we design the action to fit what he can do and that's why it looks so great.''

'Jack Reacher' is available on DVD, Blu-ray and Digital Download from 22nd April
