Tom Cruise has yet again put on a daring stunt show for his fans. During the broadcast of the 2023 MTV Movie & TV Awards, Cruise gave an insanely entertaining acceptance speech. He won the best performance in a movie award for his role in the Hollywood blockbuster, Top Gun: Maverick, a sequel to his 1986 hit, Top Gun.

Following the stunt as can be seen in the clip, Cruise again got his name in the headlines. In the clip shared by MTV Movies and Tv Award’s official Twitter handle, the actor received the award in a fighter plane. The video shows Cruise wearing sunglasses and speaking into a headset while the fighter plane was flying high in the sky. His golden popcorn trophy was also perfectly visible in the frame. “Thank you so much for this award,” the actor said.

“I make these films for you. I love you. I love entertaining you. To know how much you enjoy it, how much you appreciate it, there’s just no better feeling.”


Further, the actor also promoted another mega action movie, Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One, where he plays the lead, Ethan Hunt. The movie is set to hit theaters on July 12 this year. The actor calls his upcoming movie a “wild ride.”

“You have a wonderful summer. Thank you again for letting me entertain you. It’s an absolute privilege. We’ll see you at the movies,” Cruise added.

Cruise’s daring and unique clip is all over the internet, creating quite a buzz among fans.
