Olga Kurylenko, Ukrainian model turned Bond girl, and now Tom Cruise’s co-star in sci-fi blockbuster ‘Oblivion’ out this week, reveals she burst into tears when she had the chance to tell her screen heroine what an inspiration she had been.

“My real idol is Emily Watson,” she tells HuffPost UK. “I saw her performance in ‘Breaking The Waves’ when I was younger, living in Paris, and I thought, ‘This is it. If this job means I get to do that, so be it.’

“And, yes, I have told her. I started crying, I got so emotional, I had tears in my eyes. Meeting her was so amazing.”
