Kurylenko: Cruise is fascinating

Olga Kurylenko worked with Tom Cruise on Oblivion

Olga Kurylenko has admitted she's so fascinated by Tom Cruise she could watch him all day.

The former Bond Girl co-stars with the Hollywood A-lister in upcoming sci-fi flick Oblivion and told V magazine it was an eye-opening experience.

She said: "Tom is a fascinating person. He is one of the most generous actors I have ever worked with, and he has more energy than anyone I've ever met! I could watch him work all day long."

Olga added that she "learned so much" from Tom while they made the movie, which is due out next month.

The actress has also been busy working on Terrence Malick's latest film, To The Wonder, in which she plays troubled soul Marina, a free spirit who has a tendency to go into deep depressions.

The 33-year-old confessed the experience was draining, saying it took her "to the darkest place, ever, out of all of my movies".

"I've never been to such depths as in this one," she said. "I scared myself, you know what I mean?"

Ukrainian-born Olga said Terrence's belief in her ability gave her a real boost.

"You know, I always think about where I come from. And this guy who's so amazing and whom I admire, he just trusted me. He believed in me," she said. "It turned my life into a fairytale."
