Tom Cruise is the daredevil Hollywood star who famously shuns stunt doubles in his action blockbusters. The 52-year-old Hollywood heartthrob has done a scary stunt all by himself.
In the upcoming Mission Impossible's untitled film, Tom Cruise tried his own stunts by clinging onto a plane as it soars 5,000 ft in the air! In a death-defying scene, Tom Cruise clambers from a door of the Airbus A400M Atlas military transporter as it takes off - then desperately holds on as it circles at 250 mph.
Do not worry as sources say that he was wearing a harness that was attached to the plane. This made Tom try this daring stunt in MI and that too at the height of 5,000 ft in the air!
The crew advised Tom Cruise to not do the stunt by himself as they would use body doubles who are experienced in this daring stunts. However, Tom decided to go with the adrenaline rush at RAF Wittering, near Stamford, Lincolnshire.
Talking about doing stunts all by himself, Tom said at 'The Graham Norton Show' last year, "People do say no, but as an actor you bring everything, physically and emotionally, to a character." "I'm able to do them (stunts). I've trained for 30 years doing things like that," added the MI star.

A source on the set said: "It's easily the most outrageous stunt Tom has ever done. "When it was all over, the crew were clapping and cheering!" added the source.
Tom Cruise is playing Ethan Hunt in the new Mission Impossible's untitled movie. The movie also stars Jeremy Renner, Alec Baldwin and Paula Patton and is set to release on December 25th, 2015.
Well Tom, this is really daring but we love it that you wish to do stunts yourself and make it look real on-screen.
