Tom Cruise - Tom Cruise hurt himself kicking co-star

Tom Cruise damaged his foot while filming 'Jack Reacher' by kicking a co-star in the testicles.

The 50-year-old actor - who famously does the majority of his own stunts in his movies - has revealed the ''worst injury'' he sustained working on his latest film came when his foot was left swollen after shooting the gonad-busting scene over and over again.

Speaking to US TV talk show host Jimmy Fallon, he said:

''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! 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.''

Though he hurt his foot working on 'Jack Reacher', this isn't the worst injury the 'Mission: Impossible' actor has experienced on a film set.

Recalling the damage he has done to himself, he has previously said: ''I've broken my leg. The first time [I broke my nose], I got hit by a fastball. Another time, I got hit with a baseball bat by accident.

''Then I re-jarred it on a motorcycle. No one thought about helmets or pads back then. When I was 18, on the set of 'Taps', I met the stunt guys. I was like, 'You train for stuff like this?' Back in the day there were no videos of this stuff.''
