Tom Cruise has confessed that his most talked about stunt in the trailers of Mission Impossible 5 was actually terrifying and "scared the sh*t out of him".

The stunt shows the star hanging on the side of a plane, 5,000 feet in the air.

The Edge of Tomorrow actor said that his harness was bit loose and caused his body vibrating against the plane and this stunt of holding Airbus plane from the outside at 5,000 feet off the ground was actually scared sh*tless, reported.

The 52-year-old American actor, who even refused to wear goggles, believing that viewers would relate to the scene more without them, added that he performed this stunt eight times at 1.5 kilometres (5000 feet) in the air and on the second take he got hit by a little particle, but it made him feel like it almost broke his ribs.

Notably, Cruise, who is known to put stuntmen out of work, did another shocking stunt in 2011's Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol by flinging himself off the tallest building in the world, Dubai's Burj Khalifa.
