Why does Tom Cruise risk his life to do his own stunts in Top Gun: Maverick?
According to Variety, the actor told a masterclass at the Canes Festival, “No one asked Gene Kelly, ‘Why do you dance?'”
The 59-year-old actor said he’s always had a fascination with risk and added, “I always thought there’s something that I can do and I wanted to push the art form. I thought, ‘How can I immerse an audience into a movie with this kind of action? And how can I entertain them? What can I do?'”
