Tom Cruise, in his first network interview since breaking up with Katie Holmes, appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon Tuesday, and while the K-word wasn't mentioned, the A-list actor faced off against Jimmy in his Water War bit, and opened up about a bizarre moment filming his new blockbuster Jack Reacher.

"The worst injury I had from Jack Reacher was … I hurt my foot," the Collateral star recalled. "There's a scene where I'm kicking a guy in the b*lls, the testicles. It was a human being -- no testicles were injured in the making of the film!"

He continued, "We had to do the take over and over again, and the first 10 times it was like 'Yeah!' … after about 50 times in, my foot was swelling ... I kept having to loosen my shoe."

"Your foot: Imagine the poor guy's testicles!" Fallon joked, "Maybe Jack Reacher should wear Ugg boots!"

"I was limping for days," the A Few Good Men Star said, to which Fallon replied, "So was he, I'm assuming."

The 50-year-old then played Water War with Jimmy, which begins with a draw of cards from a deck. When Jimmy got the high card, he doused the perennial A-lister with water, via a glass and a jug, before Tom flipped on the action hero switch, leaving the late night host with a Super Soaker gun.

While visiting NYC Tom was spotted on December 16 at the restaurant Beauty & Essex where he was overheard talking about how many beautiful women were in the restaurant, clearly having moved on from his ex-wife!

With his affable, playful, nature Fallon has been the most popular late night host with in-demand celebrities as of late, having also snagged recent appearances with Katie and Lindsay Lohan.

Jack Reacher, also starring Robert Duvall, opens in theaters everywhere Friday.
