Tom Cruise accepts his MTV Movie Award flying in P-51 Mustang plane

It’s a high-flying achievement.




Tom Cruise took the skies in his P-51 Mustang plane Sunday to accept his MTV Movie Award for Best Performance in a Movie for the film “Top Gun: Maverick.”


The 60-year-old, who had his golden popcorn trophy in the co-pilot’s seat, thanked his fanbase for their love and support in a pre-recorded message.




“Hi, everyone, thank you so much for this award,” said Cruise. “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 this.”




The A-list actor also took time to plug his upcoming “Mission Impossible” film.




“I hope you enjoy ‘Mission Impossible: Dead Reckoning Part 1.’ It’ll be coming out in July,” said Cruise, adding that the film will be a “wild ride.”


“Have a wonderful summer. Thank you again for letting me entertain you. It’s an absolute privilege. We’ll see you at the movies,” finished Cruise before maneuvering his plane back down toward 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 inside the plane marked the “Jack Reacher” star’s second pre-recorded message of the evening.




During the coronation concert for King Charles III, the actor delivered another gravity-defying statement to the newly-crowned monarch.




“Your Majesty, you can be my wingman anytime,” said Cruise acknowledging the King’s 23-year military service record in both the Navy and Air Force.



“I have listened to the writers, and in order to truly respect them, I will pivot from hosting the MTV Movie & TV Awards live in solidarity with the strike,” said Barrymore, 48, in a statement. “Everything we celebrate and honor about movies and television is born out of their creation.”




“And until a solution is reached, I am choosing to wait but I’ll be watching from home and hope you will join me. I thank MTV, who has truly been some of the best partners I have ever worked with,” Barrymore’s statement continued. “I can’t wait to be a part of this next year, when I can truly celebrate everything that MTV has created, which is a show that allows fans to choose who the awards go to and is truly inclusive.​”
