Cruise, 53, was joined at tonight's screening at the BMI Imax in Waterloo, London, by co-stars Simon Pegg, Rebecca Ferguson and Hermione Corfield.

Cruise attributed the gruelling stunt scenes - many of them filmed on the streets of London - to years of practice.

Speaking on the red carpet, he said: "I have trained my whole life, constantly, whether it's drama or action.

"I don't sleep much and I love what I do so I'm working many long hours. I usually will break the film down in sequences - I work with the stunt team to train and train.

"I've been doing it for so long, and I never take anything for granted.

"When we come up with things, there's so many on every film I can't include them all.

"I want something that's cinematic, that's character and story - for me, story is king. We have to find ways of putting the audience inside that character. You want those shots but it has to be the right tone - something exhilarating and spine tingling."

Asked about a long-awaited sequel to Top Gun, which was made almost 30 years earlier, Cruise said there were no plans in place.

He said: "I know they've (producer Jerry Bruckheimer) talked about it and there's no commitment to it.

"It'd be fun, I'd like to get back in those jets. I haven't said yes to Top Gun II - don't believe everything you read."

Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation is released in the UK on Thursday.
