Tom Cruise allegedly cursed at actress Emily Blunt while she was sobbing on the set of the action movie “Edge of Tomorrow,” according to the actress. The actress was crying because she was so worn out from wearing a bulky robotic suit. She discussed the unexpected manner her co-star inspired her during a challenging filming moment in a recent radio appearance on the SmartLess podcast. Blunt recounted a scene from the movie where the two had to don enormous suits, and when the actress became anxious about wearing one, Cruise had some harsh words for her.
The actress remembers her Hollywood co-star giving stern instructions on the action movie’s set in 2014. She claimed that while she struggled with her 85-pound outfit, Cruise yelled at her to “stop being such a p***y.” She said, “We had to wear these enormous suits, which I think would’ve been great if we had CGI’d them, but we wanted to do it in a tactile way.” She added, “When you hear the word ‘tactile,’ you think that sounds nice and cosy. There was nothing cosy about these suits. It was like 85 pounds. It was so heavy. The first time I put it on I started to cry, and [Cruise] didn’t know what to do.”
Blunt added, “He just stared at me for a long time, not knowing what to do, and he goes, ‘Come on, stop being such a p***y, OK?” Blunt began Edge of Tomorrow by pointing out that it wasn’t her only problem. The actress also talked openly about breaking her collarbone and ribs while filming the action movie.
However, the tough love approach helped her, and she was able to laugh it off and finish filming the sequence. Additionally, due to the heavy nature of the suit, Emily had to step in for some moments with a male stunt double.She had an injury while filming, breaking both of her collarbones and ribs. Emily stated that they are “still dodgy” after eight years.
