Video: Tom Cruise on top of Burj Khalifa

Hollywood actor leaves his mark on world's tallest building

Actor Tom Cruise reportedly left an inscription to his wife Katie Holmes etched in the top spire of Dubai’s Burj Khalifa while filming stunts for Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol.

Cruise, who spent four days filming action scenes for the film on the world’s tallest building back in 2011, etched the message to his wife and family in the tower’s spire.

“The only person who will ever see [his signature] is the guy who paints the building some day,” the film’s stunt coordinator Gregg Smrz said at the time.

The marking is believed to consist of Cruise’s signature, a heart symbol and an inscription to his wife and children, who had travelled to Dubai to watch the shoot.
