And so there we were, having a good laugh about her new sci-fi flick with Matt Damon—”I really would love to do a movie where I kick ass!” she cried—when I decided to ask for engagement advice based on her own personal experience.
“All I can say is that there were flutes playing in the background, butterflies, there were angels showering us with rainbow drops,” she deadpanned.
So that was how it was gonna be, huh? I didn’t even know there was such a thing as rainbow drops!
“Neither did I!” she laughed. “I found out when it happened.”
Luckily, I had another question I was hoping would a rise out of her. See, this season on “The Office,” J Kraz’s Jim Halpert is getting walking down the aisle with Jenna Fischer’s Pam Beesly. And whaddya know, John and Emily just so happen to get engaged shortly before the show kicks offs. I smell marketing ploy!
“Yes, it’s all a publicity stunt!” she faux-revealed. “John and I are only doing this to crunch numbers. No, oh my god! Can you imagine? You’re actually the first person to ask me about that, which must say so much about you!”
OK, OK, it’s for real. So have they set a date for the big day?
“We don’t know,” she confessed. “We actually aren’t sure yet. We’re being uselessly unplanned about this. But I promise you will be the first to know. You will know before my mother.”

John Krasinski and Emily Blunt will soon be husband and wife.
The Office star, 29, and actress, 26, who have been dating since November 2008, are engaged, his rep confirms to PEOPLE.
“We can confirm that John and Emily are engaged,” says the rep.
The couple have kept their relationship under wraps, arriving separately at the 2009 SAG Awards in January and enjoying low-key dates in Los Angeles – including a double date with Blunt’s The Devil Wears Prada costar Anne Hathaway and her beau Adam Shulman.
“It’s not about celebrity or not,” Krasinski told Glamour in August 2007 about what he looks for in a woman. “It’s all about, do you have that ‘girl in a cardigan’ in you. You gotta have that.”
Krasinski, named one of PEOPLE’s Sexiest Men Alive, also said he looks for someone with a good sense of humor.
“Being able to laugh with someone is one of the best feelings,” he told PEOPLE last year.
Krasinski previously dated his Office costar Rashida Jones. Blunt ended her relationship with Canadian singer Michael Bublé in July 2008 after three years of dating.
Did i ever mention you can follow our updates on twitter
I loved the title of this article so i justhad to post it, it also has some nice quotes so…enjoy
After being trussed up in bone-crushing corsets to play the title role in Young Victoria, Emily Blunt has found a project that will hopefully involve a less restrictive wardrobe.
Mandrake hears that the enchanting 26-year-old actress is to play a ballerina who throws the life of a congressman, played by Matt Damon, into turmoil in a sci-fi thriller entitled The Adjustment Bureau.
If the clothes are more comfortable, the part still has its challenges. “I’m going to dance boot camp,” says Blunt. “I’ll never be at the same standard as a professional, but hopefully I’ll be able to do a little bit.
“I didn’t do ballet when I was a child. I gave it up when I was three – in some sort of bratty rage, claiming it hurt my feet.”
Emily Blunt has been playing second fiddle for too long and was due a big leading role.
And parts don’t get bigger than the queen of England. Here, she plays Victoria, the British monarch who reigned for a mammoth 63 years – still a record.
Although fiercely protected by her German mother, the Duchess of Kent (Miranda Richardson), Victoria always knew her own mind.
Here she rebels against her mum and her overbearing advisor Sir John Conroy (Mark Strong) when they try to get her to sign a regency order that would take away her powers until she reached the age of 25.
So when her uncle King William IV dies in 1837, Victoria – just turned 18 – becomes queen.
It’s a reign that sees her survive assassination attempts, political scandal and a complicated relationship with her public.
Her most poignant alliance is with her adored husband, Prince Albert (Rupert Friend), although her chief advisor Lord Melbourne (Paul Bettany) also has a huge influence on
the young queen.
Victoria quickly learns that she should rule with her head and not just
If period dramas or films about the royal family float your boat then you’ll go overboard for this.
The costumes are gorgeous, as are the grandiose locations, while the attention to detail is admirable.
But the real reason it works is that Blunt and Friend make a wonderful couple.
Victoria and Albert’s loving relationship was well known and these two up-and-coming actors throw their all into bringing this to life.
The supporting cast aren’t bad either.
Bettany always brings depth to his roles and Strong is good at being bad. Richardson has the difficult job of being a bad mum, but she pulls it off well.
The extras are varied and informative, with stuff about the real Victoria and glimpses at how they pulled off such a grand production.
