Emily Blunt Confesses She Almost Killed Tom Cruise While On Set

When fans go to the theater to see a Tom Cruise feature film -- they're generally under the impression that he's going to wind up being the main action star of the movie.  With the new movie "Edge of Tomorrow" that's not entirely the case this time with Cruise.

Cruise decided to take the role of the guy that ends up starting off as the weaker role lead who has to overcome taking each beating after beating on the big screen.

“We came up with the idea of my character being kind of an anti-hero, not a soldier,” Cruise told MTV News on the red carpet for the film. “A coward, and not ashamed of it either.”

So if Cruise spends a lot of the movie as a coward, who does the ass-kicking? Clearly, it’s the one and only Emily Blunt.

“Emily is the one who is a soldier,” Cruise explained, “so you have this very unique relationship.”

“In many violent ways, mercilessly,” Blunt said. “It was really exciting. I would laugh after each take, just at Tom’s face, going ‘Oh c’mon.’ ”

With so many times killing arguably the biggest movie star on the planet, Blunt had to have a favorite.

“I sort of liked the casual one where I just don’t look and I just kind of shoot him like that,” Blunt said. “It’s sort of like, oh God, it’s so boring. I can’t be bothered.”

In an interview on the 'Conan' show with Conan O'Brien, Blunt admitted to almost accidently killing Tom Cruise on the set of a driving scene.  The first attempt went OK, but the second time around, Blunt's driving crashed the two actors right into a tree.

"I almost killed Tom Cruise!" the actress said with a laugh. "When I first heard him say 'brake!' (while I was driving) in my head I went, 'oh shut up,' as if I thought I knew more about stunt driving than Tom Cruise."

Cruise stars in the movie, directed by Doug Liman, as a military officer who's nearly immediately killed while in battle against a vicious alien race. But instead of dying for good, he finds himself in a time loop that continuously brings him back to the fight.

As for Blunt's next film, it is rumored she is up for a role in the upcoming Batman vs. Superman movie.  Although Director Zack Snyder hasn't made an official announcements regarding roles that Blunt may play -- the rumor mill is starting to turn that she is currently in talks with Warner Brothers to get a spot on the movie.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
