Cobie Smulders has revealed more about what it was like to work with Tom Cruise on the set of the new Jack Reacher film. 

The actress, who has major credits to her career as Robin Scherbatsky in How I Met Your Mother and Maria Hill in Marvel's The Avengers film series, stars as Major Susan Turner in new film Jack Reacher: Never Go Back alongside Hollywood megastar Tom Cruise.

She told Edith Bowman on Virgin Radio what it was like to work with him.

"We arrived six to eight weeks before filming, and I was off crutches a week before we started training," she told Edith.

"The hardest thing for me was to get my body back in a place where I could sprint over and over and over with Tom Cruise - he's really fast. 

"What I did though was run in front of him. Thus, I could set the pace because any time he was ahead of me, I couldn't catch up to the guy - he was just gone.

"It was a great experience, but it was a lot of work."
