Emily Blunt injured herself on film set.

Poor Emily Blunt, it sounds like she didn't have great fun shooting new film Edge of Tomorrow (2014). First, she cries over the weight of her body armour and then she smashes herself in the face!

The Devil Wears Prada actress is starring in an action movie for the first time alongside Tom Cruise and the role has made her face more hurdles than she bargained for.

For example, a doctor had to stick two fingers up her nose to pop the cartilage back in when she botched a high-wire stunt.

She tells Entertainment Weekly, "I tried to slash my sword through the air and it got caught on one of the wires, and I ended up hitting myself in the face with the butt of it. My eyes were streaming tears."

Poor Em! The new mum, who gave birth to daughter Hazel in February, also revealed recently that the body armour she had to wear for most of the movie was so heavy that she cried when she first tried it on.

She said to Ellen DeGeneres, "The first time I put it on I cried. I remember Tom was there... To see how the exosuit fitting went... And I'm not really a crier, but I felt completely overwhelmed that I was gonna have five months of this. We put it on and he said, 'How are you doing...? You OK?'"

She then burst into tears and Tom told her to stop being a wuss! Let's hope her next movie role is less of an ordeal.
