Speaking about filming Edge Of Tomorrow, Emily Blunt has revealed she had an accident and almost killed her co-star Tom Cruise while shooting a scene.

She said: “We were driving this crazy old car with a big trailer behind it and the stunt guy was like, ‘Right, I want you to go really fast down the path and then take a really hard right and I want the trailer to swing out behind you, so get it moving and it can be kind of violent.’ I was like, ‘Great’.

Tom Cruise is in the passenger seat – not his favorite place to be… He wants to be behind the wheel.

“We do the first take, it went really well. Stunt guy came over and he went, ‘Ok, just do it again but kinda do it even faster.’ I was like, ‘No problem.’

“So we start to tear down this path. Tom’s being very quiet behind me and suddenly I just hear this… under his breath, as I approach the right hand turn, I hear him going, ‘Brake, brake, brake… brake… brake, brake, brake, brake… brake… Oh God! Oh God! Brake! Brake the car! Brake the car!’ I left it too late and so drove us into a tree and I almost killed Tom Cruise!”
