Emily Blunt - Emily Blunt 'almost killed' Tom Cruise

Emily Blunt ''almost killed'' Tom Cruise.

The 31-year-old actress got behind the wheel for a scene in their new movie 'Edge of Tomorrow' but things went wrong on the second take - when she was advised by stunt experts to go ''a bit faster'' - when she ignored her co-star's advice.

She recalled: ''I tear down this part and Tom's being very quiet behind me.

''I hear him under his breath as I approach the right-hand turn, going 'Brake, brake, brake. Brake. Brake, brake, brake... Oh God. Brake, brake, brake. Brake it hard! Brake hard!'

''I left it too late, and so drove us into a tree. ...I almost killed Tom Cruise.''

The British actress admits she was foolish to ignore the ''annoying'' advice but was happy she and her 51-year-old co-star were able to laugh off the incident later.

Speaking on 'Conan', she said: ''When I first heard 'brake,' I thought, 'Ah, shut up.' As if I knew more about stunt driving than Tom Cruise! I mean obviously he knows nothing. I've got this.

''[Afterwards] I was just laughing and he was laughing and I told him, ' I thought you were being so annoying' and I apologised.''
