It’s a soaring achievement.
Tom Cruise took to the skies in his P-51 Mustang aircraft on Sunday accept his MTV Movie Award for Best Performance in a Motion Picture for the film Top Gun: Maverick.
The 60-year-old, who had his gold popcorn trophy in the passenger seat, thanked his fan base for their love and support in a pre-recorded message.
“Hi everyone, thank you for this award,” Cruise said. “I make these films for you. I love you. i love entertaining you How much you enjoy it, how much you appreciate it. There is no better feeling and I hope you enjoy it.”
The A-list actor also took time to bag his upcoming movie Mission Impossible.
“I hope you enjoy ‘Mission Impossible: Dead Reckoning Part 1’. It’s coming out in July,” Cruise said, adding the film was going to be a “wild ride.”
“Have a wonderful summer. Thank you again for letting me entertain you. It’s an absolute privilege. See you at the movies,” Cruise finished before maneuvering his plane back to the ground.
The actor was nominated for the award alongside “Elvis” star Austin Butler, KeKe Palmer from “Nope”, Florence Pugh for the thriller “Don’t Worry Darling” and Micheal B. Jordan for “Creed III”.
The Post reached out to Cruise for comment.
The appearance on the plane marked the Jack Reacher star’s second recorded message of the night.
During the coronation concert for King Charles III. the actor has delivered another gravity-defying statement to the newly crowned monarch.
“Your Majesty, you can always be my wingman,” Cruise said, recognizing King’s 23 years of military service in both the Navy and Air Force.
Fans were divided over the obnoxious acceptance speech.
“Hey, that’s the same clip from the coronation” tweeted a fan.
“Nobody accepts an award better than @TomCruise”, raved other.
“WAHHOOOO CONGRATULATIONS TC” called a very excited person.
Other viewers slammed the Golden Globe actor’s win, saying Austin Butler, 31, should have won.

“You are joking,” called other.
“I have listened to the writers and to truly respect them, I will be walking away from the live MTV Movie & TV Awards event in solidarity with the strike,” Barrymore, 48, said in a statement. “Everything we celebrate and honor about films and television grew out of their creation.”
