Aug. 13 (UPI) -- Video released Sunday shows actor Tom Cruise injuring himself during a stunt on the set of Mission: Impossible 6.

The video shows Cruise, who normally performs his own stunts, leaping off a ledge and onto the roof of another building with wired support from a contraption above. The jump was a little short and Cruise doesn't make the jump, but instead appears to hurt his leg before pulling himself up onto the roof.

Cruise is then seen limping on set, but doesn't appear to be seriously injured.

The 55-year-old movie star is well-known for performing risky stunts on the set of his movies.

In 2011, during the filming of Mission: Impossible 4, Cruise scaled the 2,723-foot tall Khalifa skyscraper in Dubai, known as the tallest man-made structure in the world. The stunt was considered so risky that the initial insurance company for the movie didn't want to insure the stunt. But Cruise wanted to do the stunt, so the insurance company was fired and a new one was hired to go through with the famous stunt.
