Since skydiving isn’t always in the mainstream news, it’s easy to skip over the list of celebrities who have taken the plunge through the air to sail down gracefully back to earth. Let’s see if you can spot any familiar names on our list of celebrities that love to skydive:
Tom Cruise loves to push the adrenaline limit, no matter if he’s flying planes or jumping from them! In fact, Tom Cruise made over 100 training skydives while practicing for the movie ‘Mission Impossible: Fallout.’ He did his HALO-style jumps over Dubai in his iconic scenes.
