'Fun' movie star rescued Edith

Edith Bowman has revealed that Tom Cruise stopped her from losing her head – literally.

The DJ was interviewing Tom, 51, when he proved himself to be a real-life hero by rescuing her from the path of danger.

He actually saved my life,’ says Edith, 39.

I was over in Spain doing a TV special for one of his films and he saved me from being decapitated by something hanging down that I hadn’t seen, by dragging me out of the way.

Which is just the kind of thing you want to be able to say after meeting Tom Cruise.’

Edith says Tom is an all-round good guy and a pleasure to interview.

Tom is great fun,’ the mum-of-two tells Notebook.

So easy to talk to and a pro, he has a conversation with you and really engages with you.’
