"It's a odd emotion when Tom Cruise calls your house. I'd met him numerous times over the years, and we'd sat down to argue the movie.
"So I went home, the phone rang 15 minutes later, and it was Tom Cruise, asking if I required to do it. I couldn't say no, and it all worked out, and I've educated a lot from the guy this past year.
"Tom was very liberal with time and compliments. He was very hands-on, and makes you feel part of it, so it was the conflicting of threatening, it was inspiring. He sets a high bar of deficient to make the film as great as it can be, with the best stunts. So we all just required to make the film great as well."
