French actress Emmanuelle Beart didn't have to dig too deep to play a confused spy alongside Tom Cruise in MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE - she couldn't understand what was going on.

The STRAYED star learned to speak English for the film but admits she still found it difficult understanding Cruise and director BRIAN DePALMA during the making of the movie.

She admits, "I couldn't understand a word of what they were saying.

"Because I was a spy I would look very at people, and it gave the impression she was so concentrated. I was just lost."
