Entertainment TV Emily Blunt Almost Killed Tom Cruise While Filming 'Edge of Tomorrow' Blunt described the perils of performing your own stunt driving By Alex Heigl Published on June 5, 2014 11:05 AM Share Tweet Pin Email Emily Blunt: Great actress, apparently not a great stunt driver. Blunt guested on Conan Wednesday and regaled Conan O’Brien with a story from the Edge of Tomorrow set: The time she almost killed Tom Cruise. “I hear him going [quietly], ‘Brake. Brake. Brake,'” Blunt recalled of a scene that involved a tricky bit of stunt-driving. (The pair did their own stunts on the film.) “‘Em, brake the car! Brake the car!'” “And I left it too late and so drove us into a tree and I almost killed Tom Cruise,” Blunt finished. She says she was initially a little irritated that Cruise was backseat driving during their scene, but eventually swallowed her pride, realizing that there was no way she was more qualified in driving than Tom "Mission: Impossible" Cruise. Edge of Tomorrow hits theaters June 6. Like us on Facebook for more stories like this!
