Emily Blunt proved in 2014 that she can basically do anything: She battled alien invaders in Edge of Tomorrow, sang like a pro in Into the Woods, and did a dead-on impression of Tom Cruise for Yahoo Movies. In this exclusive interview, Blunt regales her Into the Woods co-star James Corden (who plays the Baker to her Baker’s Wife) with a hilarious impersonation of Cruise, her Edge of Tomorrow co-star. At Corden’s prompting, Blunt recalls the time that Cruise’s trademark enthusiasm flagged just a bit, when they were doing an arduous stunt for the sci-fi film. “I could see Tom Cruise just sort of sweating, just starting to unravel a little bit, that amazing enthusiasm just starting to dwindle. And I turned to him and I went, ‘This sucks!” says Blunt. “And he goes… ‘It’s a challenge.’ That’s Tom Cruise!”
Into the Woods director Rob Marshall also sat down with Yahoo Movies in the video below to discuss the fairy-tale musical. In the video below, he talks about his inspirations for the tricky characters of the Wolf (played by Johnny Depp) and the Witch (played by Meryl Streep). Into the Woods opens in theaters on Christmas Day.
