Hands down, these are the ballsiest Tom Cruise stunts in movies

Movie: Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation
Year: 2015

Stunt: Hanging off the side of a plane.

Bringing his real-life stunts to a whole new level in the latest Mission Impossible movie, Tom Cruise, once again playing IMF agent Ethan Hunt, runs and grabs onto the side of a massive plane just as it lifts off (and that’s only the start of the damn movie… amazing!). The word from director Christopher McQuarrie was: “I suggested to Tom, ‘What if you were on the outside of this thing when it took off?’ I meant it as sort of a half joke, but he said back to me, ‘Yeah I could do that!’” When speaking in an interview with Jimmy Fallon, Tom also said while he was hanging on the side of the plane: “…a little stone hit my rib, I thought it broke my rib… that’s how fast we were going.”
