Tom Cruise Actually Hangs Outside An Airplane In 'Mission: Impossible' (Video)

by Adam Pliskin

"Mission: Impossible -- Rogue Nation" comes out July 31.

In all of the "Mission: Impossible" films, Tom Cruise insists upon doing his own stunts.

For this movie's major stunt, Cruise clings to the outside of a plane during takeoff.

Despite the fact that Tom Cruise is a valuable commodity in Hollywood, he actually performed the stunt himself.

Suffice it to say, this was no easy feat, and Cruise could have easily been killed while doing it.

Thankfully, that didn't happen.

In the video above, you can see a behind-the-scenes featurette about how Cruise and the rest of the film crew pulled this one off.
