That Time Emily Blunt Almost Killed Tom Cruise

Celebrities! They’re just like us! Sometimes they go to Whole Foods and sometimes they almost kill Tom Cruise with a car! Who hasn’t been in the exact same position really? During an appearance on Conan, Emily Blunt got to reminiscing about he good times, including the one where she almost involuntarily murdered Tom Cruise.

As the story goes, Blunt was driving with Cruise in the passenger seat as they filmed a scene for Edge of Tomorrow and, ignoring Cruise’s suggestion that she brake, Blunt drove straight into a tree. No one was hurt, except for Blunt’s pride. “He was actually laughing,” Blunt said. “And I told him, I said, I thought you were being so annoying when you told me to say brake, and I apologize.”

So let this be a lesson to all of us: the next time you’re in a car with Tom Cruise (happens to me all of the time) ignore his backseat driving, because backseat driving is annoying and he needs to learn his lesson.
