In the new action flick Edge of Tomorrow, Emily Blunt and Tom Cruise co-star as soldiers fighting alien forces on and endless loop. However, there once was a day when Blunt wasn't such a fan of Cruise and his box office blockbusters.

In a recent interview with U.K. paper The Telegraph, reporter Helena de Bertodano smugly reminded Blunt she once dissed Cruise.

"A few years ago Emily Blunt said that she would rather do badly paid theatre for the rest of her life than ever accept a role 'as a spear carrier in a Tom Cruise movie,'" de Bertodano writes quoting Blunt.

The journalist continues, "On the eve of the opening of her new sci-fi action flick Edge of Tomorrow with, er, Tom Cruise, I remind her of this statement. 'I never said that! What an awful thing to say,' she says, almost spluttering on her iced almond-milk single-shot cappuccino. I pull out the newspaper clipping (an interview in The Telegraph in 2005) and she roars with laughter. 'That is so funny. Well, at least I'm not a spear carrier.'" LOL!

Diss or no diss, Blunt's reaction is pretty perfect.

Meanwhile, Blunt opened up about her and John Krasinski's bevy of A-list famous friends, including George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin and Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux. "I don't feel I lead a glamorous life," Blunt said. "Most of the people we're friends with are people you can just hang out with."
