Tom Cruise must have found the fountain of youth because the man hasn’t aged a bit! During the filming of the last Impossible mission in South Africa on Friday March 4, the 59-year-old actor looked almost exactly as he did in the first installment of the action series in 1996! The hunky action star was all smiles as he cheered on a group of locals who sang the theme song to one of Tom’s other blockbusters: 1986 Superior gun.

Meanwhile, Tom is busy doing his own on-set stunts, as he has done on past productions, including Mission: Impossible 7which is slated for release in 2022 and features his supposed ex-girlfriend Hayley Atwell, Rebecca Ferguson and vanessa kirby. However, the eighth chapter of the series, slated for release on July 22, 2023, recently had Tom take it a step further by investing in flight lessons to skillfully handle a Boeing Stearman plane for some action scenes.

At the time, Tom previewed how all the action unfolded, as he was spotted on the ground in a jumpsuit and helmet. Surrounded by the production crew, the actor was placed in a harness, which was attached to the wing of the Boeing Stearman biplane with a series of metal rods. Movie magic at its best!
