Annabelle Wallis has learned to accept that she is a "lesser human" when acting opposite Tom Cruise.

The British actress stars opposite the action man in upcoming movie The Mummy, which follows the pair as they battle to stop evil Egyptian princess Ahmanet (Sofia Boutella) from destroying the world.

Discussing what it was like working with the Hollywood hero, Annabelle has nothing but praise for Tom's talents.

"He's just good at everything," she told Total Film magazine. "It's really annoying, because you spend eight months trying to find something that you're better than him at, and you'll never find it. You'll have to accept that you're a lesser human. His ability to push himself that way just elevates everything. It makes for such a rich, cinematic experience, because it's all authentic."

Annabelle, 32, also shared her strict training regime for the flick, listing an hour in the gym, an hour of Pilates and two hours of stunt training as just some of the activities she participated in to build her strength for the fast-paced tale.

The Mummy isn't the only film Annabelle has on her plate right now, as she also stars as Maggie in Guy Ritchie's fantasy movie King Arthur: Legend of the Sword.

But don't be expecting to see the blonde beauty crying out for help though, as she promised fans her alter ego is "someone that you don't expect her to be".

"That was a lot of fun," she said of the movie. "I was very adamant to make sure I was no damsel. I'm quite a little toughie in that one, too."
