MSN reported the 49-year-old performed all of his own stunts for Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol - the action-packed fourth film in the superspy series.

This includes a scene where he jumps out of a window of the Burj Khalifa, and the website's footage shows Cruise climbing the building's windows, running around the face of the skyscraper and launching himself off the side.

Cellphone footage of Cruise performing the stunt hit the web a year ago, but was dismissed by fans as a stuntman. MSN says its video proves Cruise performed the stunts himself.

Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol is written by JJ Abrams, directed by Brad Bird and co-stars Paula Patton, Jeremy Renner, Josh Holloway, Simon Pegg and Michael Nyqvist.

It's due to hit cinemas on December 15.
