Yet, somehow the "Late Late Show" host found himself on board a tiny plane with the "Mission: Impossible -- Fallout" star.
"I have to confess, I'm terrified," he said prior to the fateful moment. And then attempted "his fastest Tom Cruise run" to escape. No surprise, Cruise outran him.
Pre-jump Cruise joked he expected to get a text from Corden canceling: Cut to Corden apologizing to Tom Hiddleston sending him text after text about his food poisoning. Oops! Wrong Tom!

Cruise also shared the high-flying moment on his official Instagram page:
