Tom Cruise has said he told his Edge of Tomorrow co-star Emily blunt not to be such a wuss when it came to the physicality of her role.

In the film the stars had to wear suits that weighed 85 pounds on average and Blunt has previously revealed that she cried the first time she tried it on.

Speaking on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Cruise said, "I made sure I was there the first day when she tried it on and was doing her stunts. She cried. I was standing there, all the stunt guys left, I'm friends with her husband John, and I looked at her and was like, 'What do you say at that moment?'

"I thought, I just have to try and make her laugh, I was very serious and said, 'Don't be such a wuss', she looked at me for a second and then burst out laughing."

Edge of Tomorrow is in cinemas now.
