Tom Cruise Terrifies James Corden on Wild Ride in 'Top Gun' Fighter Jet - Watch!

Tom Cruise is taking James Corden on a wild ride up in the sky!

On Monday (May 23), The Late Late Show with James Corden aired the two-day adventure the 43-year-old host had while riding in fighter jets with the 59-year-old Top Gun: Maverick actor.

“I’m very excited that James is doing this,” Tom says in the beginning of the segment. “Was he the first late-night show I asked? Hell, no. He was just the first one… the only one who said yes.”

Tom and James then hop into the classic plane, fly up in the sky, and end up in a dogfight, which absolutely terrified James.

After landing and thinking that he’s survived, Tom informs James that they are heading up again, and this time in a jet fit for modern aerial warfare.

After some intense training, Tom says to James, “You are my Goose,” a reference to his Top Gun character’s best friend in the 1986 movie.

“When you say I am your Goose, it makes me feel excited and then I realize that Goose dies at the end of the film,” James responds.

While up in their second flight, James is a bit more relaxed, even singing with Tom, however, that quickly changes when Tom decides to start pulling some stunts.

“Oh my God!” James screamed. “This is absolutely ludicrous. This is the craziest thing… this is the stupidest thing I have ever done.”

“You absolute bastard,” he then says to Tom. “I’ve got an idea, why don’t we fly straight for a bit?”

“Okay, we’ll fly straight,” Tom said, before flipping them over again.

Once they were safely back on the ground, Tom praised James for how he handled the wild ride.

“You can be my wingman anytime,” Tom says.

“You know what, I think I’m good,” James jokingly replied.

Top Gun: Maverick will be out in theaters this Friday, May 27. Check out the latest trailer here!
