Tom Cruise has revealed he was "scared" to hang on the side of a plane 5,000 feet in the air for his upcoming film Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation.
"I was scared!," Cruise told the audience at CinemaCon in Las Vegas, while playing footage of that harrowing scene.
"As always, I will do everything I can to entertain an audience and put as many people into your theaters... I'm an aerobatic pilot and I've always wanted to do that," Tom Cruise added.
Cruise, 52, said being a part of the franchise's fifth installment, is a "dream come true". "This movie has a tremendous amount of action of course, but also intrigue and mission twists," he said.
Tom Cruise had filmed it in eight times to perform the death-defying stunt. He's actually out there doing these things. He really did it.
Directed by Christopher McQuarrie, Tom Cruise's Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation is slated to release on July 31st. Apart from Tom Cruise, the film features Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg, Rebecca Ferguson and Ving Rhames.
