Even movie director Christopher McQuarrie, who helmed Cruise's last action film Mission Impossible: Fallout, joined the fun, joking on Twitter, "That is the last time I invite @justinbieber to a writers' round table."


Cruise, 56, is famous for doing a lot of his own stunts while starring as Ethan Hunt in the Mission Impossible series. The actor broke his ankle jumping between rooftops in London while filming for Fallout. Other stunts from the franchise have seen him climbing the world's tallest building, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, and hanging off a plane during take off.
