Tom Cruise left James Corden absolutely terrified after convincing the late night talk show host to be his wingman on an adventure of a lifetime. 

After accepting the 59-year-old action star’s invitation to meet him at the Hollywood Burbank Airport at 5 a.m., the English actor, 43, immediately boarded a small aircraft with his friend headed to a remote desert.

Upon their arrival, the father-of-three was informed that their next activity would be even scarier than their last adventure, which entailed jumping out of a plane.

Cruise went on to reveal his plans to pilot Corden in a vintage fighter plane for the afternoon, which left the Emmy winner nearly at a loss for words.

While looking slightly uneasy, the Cats star questioned ‘who’ would be flying them, to which Cruise, who got his pilot’s license in 1994, replied: ‘Ill fly you in it.’

‘But you’re not a pilot, you’re an actor,’ Corden cheekily reminded Cruise.
