About That Time Emily Blunt Almost Killed Tom Cruise
We almost lost Tom Cruise, you guys. The action star’s latest film, ‘Edge of Tomorrow,’ opens this week, and Cruise and his co-star Emily Blunt have been hitting the late night talk show trail pretty hard to talk about their very fun, very action-heavy outing. But you know what happens when Tom Cruise does action? He does action.
Blunt took to ‘Conan’ last night to share with host Conan O’Brien some of the specifics of the biggest stunts from their film — stunts which Cruise likes to do on his own, which made Blunt want to do them on her own — and how her reckless driving (and, honestly, probably Cruise’s backseat driving, too) almost led to his demise. She almost killed him. (She didn’t, obviously, and for that, we are all grateful.)
