Watch a 'scared shitless' Tom Cruise hang onto the side of a flying plane

It's one thing to hear that Tom Cruise did that amazing stunt where he hung off a flying plane; it's quite another to watch him do it.

Apparently, they had to do eight takes of the Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation scene to get it just right. In the video above, Cruise doesn't look exactly happy as he stands on the wing of the plane preparing to take off.

"I was actually scared shitless," he says, as we watch his feet fly out from under him.

Rogue Nation hits July 31.
