Olga Kurylenko claims she nearly killed both Daniel Craig and Tom Cruise.

The 33-year-old French actress revealed shooting dangerous stunts for Quantum of Solace with Craig and more recently Oblivion with Cruise, almost led to tragic endings for the pair.

Speaking about Craig on Ireland's The Late Late Show, she said: "I nearly killed him. We were filming a stunt where I was driving and Daniel was meant to jump in the car but I pulled off too quickly and left one of his legs hanging out. It was quite dangerous but at the end of the day he was still alive."

Despite the hairy situation on the set of Quantum of Solace, Kurylenko, 33, didn't learn her lesson and admitted she almost injured Cruise, 50, when they filmed a scene on a motorcycle for Oblivion.

"I tried to take control of the handlebars when Tom was driving and we almost had an accident," she said.

Cruise explained: "We were riding over rough terrain in Iceland and I said to her 'All you have to do is really hold on to me.' She had to hold on tight as every bump we hit I had to accelerate. But every time we hit a bump, her hands left my sides and she tried to grab the handlebars.

"I've never experienced anything like that in my life, I was so shocked, I almost killed us and I kept saying to Olga, 'Listen, we are moving at 50 miles an hour, please please let go'. So I was driving and we'd hit a little bump and I'd be slapping her hand and I was thinking I hope the camera doesn't see me slapping her hand."
