Emily Blunt found it “physically distressing” when her character was romantically linked to Bill Nighy’s in their new movie, the actor has joked.
In British comedy Wild Target, 27-year-old Blunt plays beautiful jewel thief Rose who manages to charm a hit man hired to kill her. Nighy portrays middle-aged assassin Victor who goes on the run with Rose in a bid to save her life.
The 60-year-old actor has revealed his younger co-star was shocked when she discovered they would be sharing some emotionally charged scenes, but he was thrilled with the script.
“She finds it incredibly amusing the idea that I should be in any way romantically linked,” Nighy laughed in an interview with Sky News. “She finds it physically distressing. But she was a good sport and I was ready to rock.”
Rupert Grint also appears in the movie, playing Victor’s unwitting apprentice. The 21-year-old star is best known for playing Ron Weasley in the popular Harry Potter movies and he has previously revealed it strange to work on a new project.
Rupert sports unkempt facial hair in Wild Target and his new look has sparked much discussion from his fans.
He has claimed he also spent hours talking about the beginnings of a beard with movie bosses. “There was a lot of meetings about my facial hair,” the actor laughed.
