Tom also performed his own stunts in zero gravity for The Mummy. Speaking about the experience on the Graham Norton Show, he said: "I had to convince the studio to let me do it, and Annabelle and I had to do the scene 64 times! It took us two days and the crew was flying around and vomiting in between takes. You couldn't train for this. Normally stunts take months of prepping but we just did it. It was wild and I can't believe the studio actually let me do it!" His co-star Annabelle Wallis then joked: "Can you imagine being cast with Tom Cruise? If you get any job you are excited but doing a stunt with him that he has never done before is just incredible. And, not vomiting on him!"
