Emily Blunt has revealed that Tom Cruise was very protective of her on the set of Edge of Tomorrow when he learned that she was pregnant.

The actress was not pregnant when the film was being shot, but when they were called back to set for some additional photography months later, she was pregnant with her now three month old daughter Hazel.

Speaking to Graham Norton the Five Year Engagment star explained, "For some additional photography I was pregnant, but it was still early and I wasn't really telling anyone. So Tom was confused as to why I wasn't engaging with all the stunts, as I was game when we did them originally.

"So I told him I was growing a human. He was so cute about it and protected me – he almost when overboard in helping me. In the end I had to say, 'Tom, I'm fine, I can do stairs!'"
