Our gallery was update with scans of the Empire UK‘s May Issue featuring A Quiet Place.
Emily is the cover of Vanity Fair’s February 2018 Issue with a photoshoot by Craig McDean. You can find the beautiful shoot on our gallery and the magazine scans will be added soon.
Emily Blunt has sparred with Meryl Streep (twice), out-action-starred Tom Cruise, and ruled the British Empire on-screen. But on this blustery Brooklyn afternoon in November, the 34-year-old English-born actress—surprisingly delicate in person, given the strength she projects on film—is perched on a window seat in a Cobble Hill café, laughing about her first professional heartbreak.
Blunt was 18 and playing Judi Dench’s granddaughter in the 2001 West End production of The Royal Family. If this scenario sounds ludicrously heaven-sent, know that Blunt is the first to admit it. She never intended to act professionally (the hobby was an antidote to a childhood stutter), but there she was. Blunt, who was still living with her parents in London, had no formal training. And Dench—fresh off her Shakespeare in Love Oscar win—had kindly taken her under her wing.
Emily Blunt and Paula Hawkins are the cover feature of the latest issue of The Hollywood Reporter, it has a new interview and photoshoot. Here are digital scans:
Scans from the October 31st issue of Entertainment Weekly have been added to the gallery. It features Into the Woods
The cinematic chameleon
Amy and I properly got to know each other in Albuquerque, N.M., while we were shooting Sunshine Cleaning. One night I was driving us home from a Mexican restaurant. I had just told her I was a great driver. Then, as we were leaving, I put the car in drive — rather than reverse — and drove us into a tree. It was a tap, not a cataclysmic crash. But to Amy, stuff like that is heaven. She just burst out laughing. That’s what I love most about Amy — she’s silly and funny and dirty. And she’s incredibly honest. She’s self-admittedly terrible at small talk and hiding her feelings, which I really admire in an industry full of gush. She’s also spooky-good at her job. There’s a certain mystique about Amy that helps the audience go with her on this chameleon of a career, from Enchanted to The Fighter to American Hustle. And I don’t think she’s discovered her full bag of tricks even yet.
On TIFF’s very first day, City News sat down with Emily Blunt to discuss the festival opener Looper.
The mind-bending film forays into the future; time travel has been invented but is illegal and only used by criminal organizations. ‘Loopers’ are hired guns tasked with wiping out mob targets who have been sent back in time, never to be seen in the future again. But problems arise when ‘Looper’ Joe [Gordon-Levitt] fails to kill his future self [Willis]. Blunt plays Sara, a single mom from Kansas with a heavy past who gets caught up in Joe’s complicated conundrum.
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.
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
GetHampshire have a new interview with Emily. She talks mainly about The Five Year Engagement but also discusses her upcoming projects.
British actress Emily Blunt talks about her role alongside Jason Segel in the comedy The Five-Year Engagement.
What drew her to the project and what was it like working with popular producer Judd Apatow?
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.”
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 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.
During the press junket for The Adjustment Bureau Emily was interviewed by Access Hollywood, check it out below!
Emily Blunt plays a ballerina who is forced to fight her own fate in her new film, “The Adjustment Bureau,” but in reality, the British beauty feels incredibly grateful for the way her destiny has played out.
“I look back with gratitude to a lot of stuff that’s happened [to me],” Emily told Access Hollywood at the junket for “The Adjustment Bureau” in New York City on Friday. “At the time it seemed awful and so upsetting, but when you look back you’re like, ‘Thank God I didn’t get into that school, because if I had gone to that school, I never would have got into drama, I’d never be here.’
The Irish Times have a new interview with Emily, check it out below!
Emily Blunt only took up acting as part of a therapeutic programme for her debilitating stutter, but film fans can be glad that it stuck – the acting, that is. She talks gnomes, superheroes and hamburgers with TARA BRADY
‘WE’RE GOING to have to strike that one from the record, I think,” says Emily Blunt, as she pulls her feet on to the couch to aid further contemplation and catlike curling. “In fact, please put some sort of qualifying marks around everything I’ve just said. ‘Emily Blunt says, rolling her eyes.’ That sort of thing.”
Next month Emily is on the cover of three magazines! She and co-star Matt Damon share the covers for Men’s Health & Women’s Health and Emily cover’s Elle Canada! Previews of the covers have been added to the gallery, if anyone could donate scans I’d be very grateful.
AskMen.com also have a brief new interview with Emily, check it out below.
Now, after lending her voice to the new animated comedy Gnomeo and Juliet, Blunt has become the first garden decoration to win a spot on AskMen’s Top 99 Most Desirable Women list. At a press event for the film, Blunt discussed the unpredictable life of an actress turned gnome.
Now that you’ve played a garden gnome, have you learned to appreciate them?
Emily Blunt : I’ve seen them, of course. But I don’t own one. I was always scared or creeped out by anything that resembled people — statues or dolls. They often look a little seedy or naughty and less child-friendly than the great designs we have in this film. So, I don’t have them around. I also don’t garden. I do know people who have garden gnomes of themselves in their garden. That’d be fun. I’d like one of myself, perhaps.
