Tom Cruise claims he is "very adventurous".
The 'Top Gun' actor insists he lives life to the full and spoke about his love of the film industry at the Jameson Empire Awards in London on Sunday (30.03.14), where he picked up the Legend of Our Lifetime accolade.
Asked what he would do differently if he could to start again in life, he told BANG Showbiz: "It would have to be live, die, repeat. There's so many things in life you want to see and want to do, I'm very adventurous.
"The people I get to meet and work with in the movie business everyday, they're exceptional people ... I get to make films and it's such a unique art form. It does take a lot of people, when you look at the credits, it gets bigger and bigger because we have such an extended amount of technicians and artists. It's been amazing."
Tom is interested in filming a 'Top Gun' sequel and has "talked about different kinds of stories" with movie bosses and insists they are "trying to figure it out."
Meanwhile, the 51-year-old star will also appear in alien war film 'Edge of Tomorrow' this year and revealed there are plenty of "great female characters" in the movie.
He explained: "Emily Blunt plays this extraordinary warrior who knows that the end of the world is coming and she had this superpower and she lost it, so she's about to go into battle on this day knowing the world is going to end."
Tom revealed he plays an "unlikely hero" in the film who is on the outside and is suddenly forced into the situation.
He said: "You have this wonderful dynamic of my character and Emily's character.
"It's the journey of this guy who has to take responsibility and he becomes to be the quiet hero. You look at Doug Liman, the films he's made - they're very big commercial movies but they're also human films and human stories."
