Emily Blunt Shares Rude Advice Tom Cruise Gave Her During Filming

Actress Emily Blunt recently revealed the harsh and rude advice Tom Cruise gave her while working on the 2014 sci-fi film ‘Edge Of Tomorrow’.

During an appearance on the “SmartLess” podcast hosted by Will Arnett, Jason Bateman and Sean Hayes, Blunt shared the challenges of working on his first action-oriented film.

The actor said Cruise told him “rather reassuringly” when they started the movie that it was “the deep end of the action for him. The ‘Mary Poppins Returns’ star said her reaction was, “If you say that, for example, we’re in trouble.”

One stunt was particularly daunting because it required Blunt and Cruise to wear what she described as “really huge robotic suits” to make the scene “in a tactile way” rather than with CGI.

“And you know, when you hear the word touch, you’re like, it sounds good and comfortable,” Blunt continued. “There was nothing comfortable about wearing those suits. Like, mine was like 85 pounds. It was so heavy.”

Blunt said the first time she put on the costume, she started crying in front of her co-star. She confessed she wasn’t sure she could make it through the shoot and admitted she felt “a little freaked out”.

Blunt said Cruise watched her for a while, trying to figure out the right thing to say. His ultimate choice of words?

“Come on, stop being such a pussy. OK?” Blunt relayed, leading Hayes to gasp and Bateman to joke, “Good, good for Tom.”

“And I laughed, and then we got away with it,” Blunt said.

A sequel to “Edge Of Tomorrow” has been discussed for at least 2019, and Blunt told EW in 2021 that she read a script “that was in really, really good shape.” However, she told Howard Stern at the time that she thought “the film is probably too expensive”.
