"The Bourne Supremacy" star reached out to Cruise for stunt advice a few years ago and the "Mission: Impossible" action man agreed to meet him for dinner.
"I kinda cornered him and I said, 'Hey, tell me about this... like, I'm afraid of heights. How did you do this thing?' " Damon recalled. "And he goes, 'Oh, you know... I've been dreaming of this shot for 15 years, this sequence, and finally I had a chance to do it... So I go to the safety guy... and the safety guy says, 'You can't do that. That's too dangerous'... So I get another safety guy.' "
"I looked at him and I’m like, 'I'm tapping out, you win. You are the best!' "
"My reaction is, 'Too bad we can't do that sequence, it would have been really cool'. His reaction is, 'No, we're getting another safety guy.' "
