Remember that scene from Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation where Tom Cruise hangs from the side of a plane, well that was really him and that was really a plane.
Cruise has some serious balls when it comes to performing his own stunts and it turns out the airplane wasn’t the only thing he nailed. For the underwater scene in Mission: Impossible, Tom underwent freediving training, the same program used in the military.
With help from his trainer, the actor learned how to hold his breath for up to 6 minutes. This behind-the-scenes video from Access Hollywood shows the training and filming of the scene. In true Tom Cruise fashion, he went a little over-the-top with the process.
