Tom Cruise’s Advice Got Emily Blunt Through Filming of Edge of Tomorrow
During her interview on the Smartless podcast, Emily Blunt recalled working on the 2014 film Edge of Tomorrow. She shared that the cast of the film was required to wear heavy robotic suits for the film. However, she was not comfortable cause the outfits were too heavy for her.
“We had to wear these really enormous robotic suits, which I think would have been great if they could have CGI’d them, but they wanted to do it practically and in a tactile way,” the Jungle Cruise star said.
Blunt then shared that there was nothing cozy about those suits and her suit weighed 85 pounds. She said that as she put on the suit for the first time, she started to cry. “Mine was like 85 pounds, it was so heavy that the first time I put it on, I just started to cry,” the Sicario star said.
Her co-star, Tom Cruise was also with her at the moment. Emily Blunt recalled the moment saying, “Tommy, I’m not sure how I am going to get through this shoot.’ And I started to cry, I was like, ‘I’m just feeling a bit panicky about the whole shoot!'”
The Wild Target star shared that Cruise just stared at her for a long time, confused over what to do to comfort her. And then he said, “Come on. Stop being such a bi**h, okay?’” Blunt shared that although it was not what she expected she “did laugh” and they got through the film.
