Tom Cruise's 'hairy' motorbike scene

TOM Cruise faced a "gruelling" challenge on the set of 'Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation'.

The 52-year-old actor had to do a particularly "hairy" stunt for the film involving a motorbike.

He told Yahoo! Movies: "It was physically the most gruelling sequence. We're going at very high speed with Simon Pegg as my passenger, drifting through very narrow streets with cameras on [the bike].

"I'm not wearing a helmet or pads, and at one point I'm highsiding a guy. It was hairy, actually."

Meanwhile, Tom previously revealed he was left "scared s**tless" when one of his stunts for the action movie saw him hanging off a flying plane.

Asked about the experience, he said: "I was actually scared s**tless.

"As always, I will do everything I can to entertain an audience and put as many people into your theatres ... I'm an aerobatic pilot and I've always wanted to do that.

"I was in a harness, on my side, that was kind of loose so you can see the vibration of my body against the plane."

Tom also claimed he nearly got injured during the stunt when he had to land the plane, despite the crew ensuring all debris were off the runway.

He added: "I got hit by just a little particle. I literally thought it broke my ribs."
