Emily Blunt Almost Killed Tom Cruise

Not only does Tom Cruise die repeatedly in Edge of Tomorrow, but it turns out that he almost died once on set as well. On Conan Wednesday, Emily Blunt told a story about how she crashed a stunt car into a tree while Tom Cruise was in the passenger seat, after not heeding his instructions to brake on time. Still, it sounds like Cruise didn't get too upset about the near-death experience. "He was actually laughing," said Blunt. "And I told him, I said, I thought you were being so annoying when you told me to say brake, and I apologize." So yeah, she'll probably never work in this town again. Watch:
