“There was one that Doug [Liman] kind of slipped on me,” she told host Josh Horowitz. “I mean, I’d love to make it a reality, but I just don’t know when or how. And how much Mission Impossible does he [Cruise] need.”

Blunt jokes that Cruise needs to “come back to the side where you can be… as if he wasn’t brilliant as the cowardly hero? Unbelievable.” In the 2014 film directed by Liman, Blunt starred opposite Cruise, who relives the same day over and over again while battling aliens.

The actress added that she’s “so ready” for a sequel and clarified that she’s “not the drag, I promise.”

Earlier in the interview, Blunt also shared why she doesn’t consider herself a movie star, even though she has starred in dozens of films throughout her career.

When asked about the difference between being called an actor and a movie star, the actress said, “I think most people want to call themselves an actor. [first].”

As for herself, when Horowitz asked if she thinks she could be both, Blunt quickly replied, “No, dirty.” Not me.”

“I just think being a movie star sounds a little too separate to me from what we started doing and why we love it and why I love it,” she added.

The Oppenheimer star went on to explain that in her opinion, there can be no movie star without first acknowledging one’s talents as an actor, using “one of the first actors to make such an impact on her childhood” as an example.

“Julia Roberts, who, you know, was defined as a movie star,” Blunt said. “But you can’t forget her invaluable ability as an actor and how wonderful she was Beautiful ladythat the reason she’s a movie star is because she kidnaps you and pulls you into this movie because of her phenomenal talents and her charm and her charisma.

The actress suggested that she believes the two concepts can sometimes be mixed. “When someone has that ability, it’s like you can’t tear your eyes off him,” she continued. “Maybe that’s what the movie star thing is, but I often think of it as a mix.”

As for her most recent co-stars in Christopher Nolan’s latest film, currently in theaters, Blunt joked that Cillian Murphy would be “a little shocked to be called the movie star.”
