Tom Cruise has said that he picked up a few injuries on the set of his latest film Jack Reacher with the worst one coming when he had to kick a tough guy.

The actor is famous for doing a lot of his own stunts on film sets.

Speaking on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday, he said his worst injury happened to his foot when he had to kick a guy in a sensitive area over and over again.

He said "We had to do the take over and over again, and the first 10 times it was like 'Yeah!'" adding "after about 50 times in, my foot was swelling... I kept having to loosen my shoe."

Fallon suggested that maybe Jack Reacher needed to wear Ugg boots.

The New York premiere for Jack Reacher was cancelled earlier this week in the wake of the school shooting in the US.
