Anyone traveling to three different countries and across the Atlantic on the same day is bound to be exhausted.

But not Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt.

The stars turned up in Manhattan late Wednesday night for the final leg of a whirlwind red-carpet marathon to promote their latest sci-fi action film, Edge of Tomorrow.

How did they look? Surprisingly well-refreshed.

“I feel good,” said Cruise, who spent nearly an hour greeting fans before walking the red carpet. “It’s like making a movie. You get a couple hours’ sleep. You get up and get back at it.”

The stars – who attended their first red carpet at 6:30 a.m. in London and then flew to Paris and then to New York – traveled on one plane with other cast members and director Doug Liman for the first leg. That “was a lot of fun,” said Cruise, who, with Blunt, spent much of that flight walking around and socializing.

When it was time to fly from Paris to New York later that day, Cruise, Blunt and Liman, who “bonded” while making the film, the director said, took their own plane.

“We hung out for a bit and then just crashed,” said Cruise, who looked crisp in a custom-fit black suit, white shirt and black tie.

“I don’t know what happened on the other plane,” he joked. “Emily and I were on ours, kind of going, ‘We don’t want to know. What happened on that plane stays on that plane.’ … We’ll find out later.”
