Emily Blunt tells how she hid baby bump

Emily Blunt and Meryl Streep have explained how Emily managed to keep her baby bump out of view while filming Into The Woods. The Devil Wears Prada star plays The Baker’s Wife alongside James Corden in the fantasy film, a character who desperately wants a child, but in real life she discovered she was pregnant with daughter Hazel just before filming began.
According to E!, Meryl, who plays The Witch, told official Disney fan club magazine D23: “That was pretty funny. They were constantly putting James Corden (The Baker) in front of her belly, raising her apron higher and higher.”
Emily agreed: “I was hiding behind every tree in that wood! Colleen Atwood, who’s the most remarkable costume designer, as everybody knows, was so accommodating. I would say towards the end, every four or five days they were making some adjustments.”
She added: “The fact that I was pregnant actually was a rather transporting thing, and a very helpful experience in a way to understanding the urgent need that this woman has for a baby. “Here I was, feeling incredibly blessed and understanding what the character maybe is missing out on.”


Emily Blunt’s daughter is her ‘travel buddy’

Emily Blunt thinks her baby daughter is a good “travel buddy”. The 31-year-old actress took her four-month-old daughter Hazel, whom she shares with her husband John Krasinski, with her when she promoted her new movie Edge of Tomorrow earlier this month and she insists the tiny tot is settling into her new jet-setting life. Speaking to Ireland’s RTÉ Ten, she said: “She’s a good little travel buddy. It’s tough to leave and go and work as this is my first time back since she was born but I just see her whenever I can and every hour, any moment, I have free she’s with me and it’s alright.”
Meanwhile, the blonde beauty recently admitted that since becoming a mother her priorities have changed and she’s going to be more selective about the roles she takes on in the future. She said previously: “I think I’ll be very specific about what I do because it does switch your focus and everything in me just wants to be with her right now so it’ll be interesting.”


Tom Cruise told Emily Blunt she was a wuss

Tom Cruise told Emily Blunt not to be a “wuss” during filming for Edge Of Tomorrow. The 51-year-old actor, who stars alongside the actress in the new combat film didn’t tell her how heavy the costumes were before they got on set, and admits she burst into tears when she tried hers on.
Speaking to US chat show host Jimmy Kimmel, Tom said: “I made sure I was there the first day when she tried it on and was doing her stunts. She cried. “I was standing there, all the stunt guys left, I’m friends with her husband John, and I looked at her and was like, ‘What do you say at that moment?’ “I thought, I just have to try and make her laugh, I was very serious and said, ‘Don’t be such a wuss’, she looked at me for a second and then burst out laughing.”
Tom insists he asked if there was any way the costumes could be made lighter and claims Emily trained for three months for her stunt scenes. He said: “When I got it on, I thought, ‘There’s no way to make it any lighter’. I knew it was going to be challenging. It just looks cool on film.”


Emily Blunt ‘Almost Killed’ Tom Cruise In Driving Stunt

British actress Emily Blunt “almost killed” Tom Cruise on the set of their new movie Edge Of Tomorrow when she accidentally slammed a car into a tree in the middle of a high-speed stunt. The Devil Wears Prada star admits Cruise, a seasoned action man, was already uncomfortable not being in the driving seat for the scene, and he even tried to urge her to hit the brakes earlier to avoid a collision – but she refused to listen and ignored his pleas to bring the car to a halt.
She explains, “We were driving this crazy old car with a big trailer behind it and the stunt guy was like, ‘Right, I want you to go really fast down the path and then take a really hard right and I want the trailer to swing out behind you, so get it moving and it can be kind of violent.’ I was like, ‘Great’. Tom Cruise is in the passenger seat – not his favourite place to be… He wants to be behind the wheel. “We do the first take, it went really well. Stunt guy came over and he went, ‘Ok, just do it again but kinda do it even faster.’ I was like, ‘No problem.’ “So we start to tear down this path. Tom’s being very quiet behind me and suddenly I just hear this… under his breath, as I approach the right hand turn, I hear him going, ‘Brake, brake, brake… brake… brake, brake, brake, brake… brake… Oh God! Oh God! Brake! Brake the car! Brake the car!’ I left it too late and so drove us into a tree and I almost killed Tom Cruise!” Continue reading

Emily Blunt as Ms. Marvel?

Hopefully more female character films will be on the rise! After Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow portrayal in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, this will soon become a reality. Her character held her own in a male dominated cast as the only female combatant. I believe her screen time in both films helped bring other female teammates to the big screen such as, Wasp in Ant-Man and Gomora from Guardians of the Galaxy.
After seeing Captain America: The Winter Soldier, my mind started to wonder what would be the end result of the Black Widow, had Blunt taken the job? Remember she was originally cast to play the Black Widow, but because of previous scheduling conflicts, the deal didn’t work out. I also started to think about IF Blunt had taken the role of Black Widow, would that have opened up the doors for Scarlett Johansson as Ms. Marvel?! Missed opportunity, so sad
The more I thought about the idea, the more I started to like it. I mean, what’s done is done, and Blunt had little control over how things turned out, but I couldn’t help but flirt with the idea. I’m getting the inkling that Emily Blunt may have made a slightly better Black Widow, and Johansson would have made an great Ms. Marvel (her casting may have also helped catapult the project into gear a lot quicker). I mean, if you’ve seen the trailer for Johansson’s upcoming movie Lucy, it does have a Ms. Marvel feel to it, don’t you agree? (Besides the plot sounding similar to the film Limitless)
Thor and Thor: The Dark World star Natalie Portman hinted a while back that Marvel is definitely planning a solo female superhero film. With the most talked about superheroine being Ms. Marvel. With The Vision joining The Avengers 2, fans may also get to see Ms. Marvel introduced after all. She’s been name dropped by Marvel co-president Louis D’Esposito as a character of interest for a Marvel One-Shot and Hollywood talent. The most rumored name to come up is actress just happens to be…Emily Blunt. Blunt has gone on the record to say that she still wants to work with Marvel, so her getting the role of Ms. Marvel, wouldn’t come as a surprise if she got the part. Given her rising fame, Blunt would also be the type of recognizable (but still affordable) name that Marvel wants to have on a marquee. I think Scarlett Johansson is good as the Black Widow. Emily Blunt is a fantastic, under appreciated actress that I think would be great for Ms. Marvel.
