Tom Cruise, who prides himself on always performing his own action stunts, crashed into the side of a building and injured himself while filming Mission Impossible 6 in London.

The Daily Mail reports that the 55-year-old actor was pictured “limping away in pain” after jumping off some rigging and onto a rooftop. He was attached to a harness, but he appears to fall short and he crashes into the side of the building.

Daily Mail reports that though the plot of the newest Mission Impossible movie has been kept tightly under wraps, Skydance Media CEO David Ellison said that Cruise will be “performing the biggest stunt sequence of his career in the film.”

Cruise has been training for a year in preparation. Ellison said it will be “mind-blowing.”

Cruise has hurt himself before while performing his own stunts — once back in 1996 he hurt his ankle during a scene where fish tanks explode in the first Mission Impossible movie

The movie is slated for release in 2019.
