Tom Cruise just revealed that he's still dealing with the fallout from a broken ankle he sustained in August 2017. Tom broken his ankle by slamming it into a wall during a stunt he did for his upcoming movie "Mission: Impossible-Fallout. He recently appeared on a TV show where the guests watched the exact moment he broke his ankle in slow motion.
Typically it takes about six to eight weeks for a broken ankle to heal to the point where a person can start putting weight on it.
Tom must have suffered a severe break since he says it's still broken. Either that or he's been so busy filming and putting weight on it when he shouldn't that it hasn't had a chance to heal. As a Seattle podiatrist I'm guessing he also damaged his ligaments if he's still having problems.
