Emily Blunt has no regrets about handing her role in Iron Man 2 over to Scarlett Johansson – insisting the young American did an amazing job in the comic book blockbuster.
The British actress had been lined up to play the Black Widow in the superhero sequel opposite Robert Downey, Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow and Mickey Rourke.
The 27 year old was forced to drop out due to scheduling conflicts and the role was offered to Johansson instead.
But Blunt admits her replacement was a much better choice as Johansson looked great in the character’s tight back costume, while she got to wear girly dresses in her role as a princess for the upcoming Gulliver’s Travels adaptation instead.
She tells Britain’s Sunday Times, “Scarlett worked that catsuit, so who’s complaining? I get to play a princess. It’s the most frilly I’ve ever been.”
