"Come on, Stop Being Such a P*ssy, Okay?" - Emily Blunt's Recollection of Working with Tom Cruise on "Edge of Tomorrow"
As reported by Insider, British actress Emily Blunt has shared a memorable, though somewhat uncomfortable experience she had with Tom Cruise while filming the science-fiction blockbuster "Edge of Tomorrow."
Intense Production, Bulky Exoskeletons, and a Panicky Blunt
With roles in action movies like "Sicario," "A Quiet Place," and "Jungle Cruise," Emily Blunt is no stranger to challenges. Yet, the filming of "Edge of Tomorrow" brought a unique struggle for her. Describing the production as "intense," Blunt recounted the discomfort and panic she felt while wearing bulky exoskeleton costumes designed to battle relentless aliens called "Mimics."
"When you hear the word 'tactile,' you think that sounds nice and cozy. There was nothing cozy about wearing these suits," she revealed on Jason Bateman's "SmartLess" podcast.
Tears, Cursing, and an Awkward Moment with Cruise
It's one thing to wear uncomfortable costumes, but quite another to break down and cry in front of Tom Cruise. Blunt explained that her panic escalated into tears as she questioned her ability to get through the shoot.
In a bold attempt to motivate her, Cruise responded, "Come on, stop being such a pussy, okay?" While the comment could have been taken offensively, Blunt noted it was said in good spirits, and she managed to laugh it off, proving that a little tough love can go a long way.
Despite this awkward moment, Blunt and Cruise's collaboration in "Edge of Tomorrow" proved to be successful. Cruise, though not a stranger to controversy, particularly regarding his tirade over COVID-19 guidelines on the set of "Mission: Impossible," remains an influential figure in Hollywood.
