Facts about 'Mission Impossible' stunts

Cruise has been in London for a few months now, filming the sixth installment of the movie franchise. "Mission Impossible" is best known for outrageous stunts, and the 55-year-old actor does all of them by himself. In "Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation" the actor clung to the side of a flying plane.
