In 2015, the actor told "Entertainment Tonight" about a moment he had while performing his own stunts on the set of "Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation." In that film, Cruise's character clings to the outside of a plane, a stunt he performed himself.
“The morning came, and I’m strapped onto the side of that airplane and I’ll never forget, I kept telling the pilot, I said, ‘Listen, man. When you’re climbing out you’ve got to make sure, because I want my feet against the fuselage. I want that steep climb,'” Cruise said. “With an airplane, you got to really know the weight, the balance, the numbers -- it’s a very powerful, beautiful airplane and I really appreciate they did this.”
A representative for Cruise and Paramount, the studio for the movie, have not commented on the video.
Video of the stunt can be seen at TMZ.com.
