Emily Blunt on “Looper”

Entertainment Weekly have a new interview up with Emily in which she discusses Looper.

Up until this week, all the attention around the sci-fi thriller Looper has been on Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s transformation into a younger version of Bruce Willis. In the film, written and directed by Rian Johnson (Brick, The Brothers Bloom), Gordon-Levitt plays Joe, a mob assassin called a looper who kills off marks beamed back from the future. It’s a steady, well-paying, simple-if-brutal gig, until one day the mob decides to close your loop, and send back your future self to be killed off, severing all ties to the crime. Unfortunately for Gordon-Levitt, his older self is played by Bruce Willis, who escapes his assassination, forcing the younger Joe to try to chase down and murder his older self.

Emily talks “Looper” with ScreenCrush & Huffinton Post

ScreenCrush and The Huffington Post have posted two new interviews with Emily in which she discusses Looper and her Comic Con appearance.

We’ve seen a bit of you in the trailers, but just a little taste. So what can you tell me about Sarah?
Well, I can’t tell you much really because my character’s plot line hinges on all of the big reveals and surprises of the movie and the twists. So I think that really the most I can say is that she’s an incredibly… She’s kind of a badass.

She’s living on a farm in the middle of nowhere and somehow myself and my family get embroiled in all of this craziness when Joe Gordon-Levitt allows his future self to run. And then when they are battling each other. So my family is somehow involved in all of this and the reasons why they’re battling. – Read All

You are on quite a run lately. Are you conscious of that? Is there a moment when you think, This is working out?
[Pauses] To be honest, I try not to think about that much. I find the job really precarious, you know? And I’m in love with it. I’m very lucky to be doing it. But, yet, I don’t know if you can ever bank on your position. It’s a very fickle business in many ways. So, all I want to do is keep playing great roles in great movies — whether they be made for $80,000 or $80 million. I don’t care. I just want to do good work. I think as soon as you state your position in this industry, you’re sort of stating your future as well. It’s dangerous, because you never f-cking know. You know? – Read All

Why Emily Blunt can’t believe her luck

The Guardian – When she was a teenager, Dame Judi Dench took her under her wing. A decade later, she’s the toast of Hollywood – and married to actor John Krasinski. Life would be perfect, she says, if it hadn’t made her so superstitious.

Emily Blunt is describing her OCD with a humorous wryness. “It’s very weird. It’s only happened in this past year. I’ve started getting very superstitious and fixating on things. I used to do it as a kid. I’d get these obsessive moments where I’d be in the car with my dad or something, and every time we went past a lamp-post I’d go like this…” She pauses to make six clucking noises with her tongue, flipping her head with each one to acknowledge the lamp-posts she’s mentally passing. “And my dad would be like: ‘What are you doing?’ And I’d go, ‘Sorry, I can’t…” she clucks, “…stop.”

“Your Sister’s Sister” Q&A

Emily and Rosemarie DeWitt have sat down with The Washington Post and taken part in a Q&A about Your Sister’s Sister.

Shot over 12 days in a cabin on a remote island off Washington state, Lynn Shelton’s “Your Sister’s Sister” is a naturalistic, largely improvised film that, despite its seeming artlessness, builds its drama organically and effectively.

It’s the fourth feature from the Seattle-based Shelton, the director of “Humpday,” whose light, comedic touch and collaborative, low-budget process have made her a cult favorite and a sought-after filmmaker for actors eager for freedom and realism. “Your Sister’s Sister” stars Emily Blunt and Rosemarie DeWitt (the most established actors yet to work with Shelton) as sisters whose relationship is challenged by a visiting friend (Mark Duplass).

The Telegraph interview Emily

The Telegraph has a new interview with Emily in which she talks about The Adjustment Bureau which is out on Friday!

It feels a little like Emily Blunt Month here in the United States, where the cheery British actress is popping up all over the place. She is on magazine covers, talk shows, red carpets – and, for now, sitting opposite me in a Manhattan hotel.

She has just flown in from Los Angeles, where she lives with her husband John Krasinksi (a fellow actor, he plays the Ricky Gervais role in the American version of The Office) for the premiere of The Adjustment Bureau, a new romantic thriller in which she stars with Matt Damon.
