Tom Cruise told Emily Blunt to 'stop being a pussy' after she cried on set

Emily Blunt claims Tom Cruise told her to “stop being such a p***y” after she cried on set. The actress revealed the news on the “SmartLess” podcast.

Blunt was filming scenes for the 2014 action movie Edge of Tomorrow, also known by its tagline Live Die Repeat, when she found herself struggling with the weight of a costume she had to wear.

In the film, Blunt wears a robotic suit, which according to the star “would’ve been great if we had CGI’d them, but we wanted to do it practically and in a tactile way”.

Blunt said on the podcast. “When you hear the word ‘tactile,’ you think that sounds nice and cozy. There was nothing cozy 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, “I was like, ‘Tom, I’m not sure how I’m going to get through this shoot,’ and just started to cry. I said, ‘I’m feeling a bit panicky about the whole shoot.’ He just stared at me for a long time, not knowing what to do, and he goes, ‘Come on, stop being such a pussy, ok?’”

“I did laugh, and then we got through it, but the training was intense,” Blunt concluded.

“Edge of Tomorrow,” based on the 2004 Japanese novel “All You Need Is Kill” by Hiroshi Sakurazaka, grossed $370 million at the worldwide box office and starred Bill Paxton and Brendan Gleeson in addition to Crusie and Blunt. Doug Liman directed the movie. The film is set in a future where aliens are occupying most of Europe while Cruise and Blunt’s characters fend off the invaders

Liman, Cruise and Blunt have long discussed wanting to return for a sequel, but the project has never officially gotten off the ground at Warner Bros.

“We wanted to. Honestly, I think the movie’s too expensive. Yeah, I don’t know how we’re going to do it,” Blunt said in a recent CinemaBlend interview (via IndieWire). “I think that it’s hard to align everyone’s schedules. I would love it. [Director] Doug Liman would love it. Tom would love it. We’d all love to do it, but I think until we figure out what’s going on with the industry – honestly, I think we need to figure out what is the next road map for the kinds of films that people want to make.”
