Emily Blunt: Tracy Anderson Workout

Before she married Office star John Krasinski last year, actress Emily Blunt went to work—with celebrity trainer Tracy Anderson. Known as the woman who sculpted the bodies of Madonna, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Shakira, Anderson put Blunt on a serious regimen of yoga and Pilates four and five times a week. “It’s so hard,” Blunt told HollywoodLife. “That’s a lot of cardio. It’s the most cripplingly difficult, [but] I actually enjoy it!”

British actress Emily Blunt fully excels in George Nolfi’s romance thriller ‘The Adjustment Bureau.’ In the film she stars alongside Matt Damon as the beautiful contemporary ballet dancer Elise Sellas, who falls in love with ambitious politician David Norris (Damon). However just as the pair realize they’re falling in love with each other, mysterious men conspire to keep the two apart, the agents of Fate itself, the Adjustment Bureau, who will do everything in their considerable power to prevent David and Elise from being together. The film is out in cinemas now.

A key scene in the film is when you and Matt’s character meet for the first time?

Emily Blunt: Yeah, I felt the pressure with that scene trying to get it right. We had to get it right because it’s so important for the rest of the film, it’s lucky we had George as director and writer because he understands that we had stretch it out, or change it. It had to be instantaneous, that spark had to work.

It was great to have a romance that felt particular, and unique, and not like the kind of romance you see when you watch too many movies, that was the key for us, to try and find something that felt like these two had this kind of secret language that seemed to have gone back years before they met. We wanted it to be instantaneous, I think it helped that we set it in the most unlikely and unromantic place, I thought it was a really cool setting for these two to meet, it takes the edge off for people who may think this type of thing is a bit smoltzy.  It was so funny it was in this men’s bathroom, and so weird (laughs). That really struck me about the movie, that it was an unlikely, a different take on a love story. Matt is an instantly likable guy, he’s awesome so that made it easier. Read more…

Hollywood’s imagination drain is the problem, but here’s the cure – Philip K. Dick.

The late science fiction author whose work influenced “Blade Runner” and “Total Recall” continues to inspire screenwriters with “The Adjustment Bureau,” a romantic thriller starring Matt Damon and Emily Blunt.

Matt Damon and Emily Blunt star in “The Adjustment Bureau.”

“Bureau’s” sci-fi trappings can’t match other Dick adaptations, and you could drive a Hummer through some of its plot holes. But Dick’s fertile mind combined with two strong leads makes “Bureau” a tricky exploration of free will.

Damon stars as David Norris, a politician whose colorful past just cost him a senate seat in New York. He enters a men’s bathroom to mull over his concession speech when he meets Elise (Emily Blunt), who ducked into the bathroom after getting caught crashing a wedding. Read more…
