One esteemed critic has dubbed Brit actress Emily Blunt the next formidable female leading lady. Anthony Hopkins has the pleasure of playing opposite Blunt in next year’s The Wolf Man, also starring Benicio Del Toro. The experienced Hopkins was extremely impressed with Blunt’s work, rivaling comparisons to his Silence of the Lambs costar, Academy Award winner Jodie Foster.
Hopkins says Blunt, best known stateside for her scene-stealing role as the first assistant in The Devil Wears Prada, was a dream to work with. “Wonderful,” he raved. “One of the absolute best I’ve worked with. For me, it’s her and Jodie Foster. You just don’t get any better than that.” Read more…

Emily Blunt’s dad has shown his approval for the upcoming nuptials of his daughter to actor John Krasinski.
The couple, who announced their engagement through the US Office star’s publicist, haven’t commented on their new status, but the Young Victoria actress’ father, leading criminal judge QC Oliver Blunt, has voiced his approval.
“We are very happy for her. He is a lovely guy, very bright and a great companion for Emily,” he told the Daily Express.
“We have met him of course – he was here to support Emily at the premiere of Young Victoria.”
He also revealed that it’s still early days and couldn’t say if the wedding would be held here or in the US – John’s native country – adding: “It’s too early to say.”

Newly engaged couple John Krasinski and Emily Blunt apparently want a short engagement.
“They’ve told their friends and family that this isn’t going to be a long engagement,” a source tells In Touch. “They have to schedule [the wedding] pretty tightly around his work on The Office. He only gets two breaks a year from shooting — at Christmas and in late March. Emily’s going full speed into wedding planning mode. She’s interested in starting a family, so there’s really not a lot of time to waste sitting around.”
John, 29, and his 26-year-old British fiancée are reportedly hoping to tie the knot in his hometown of Boston before the end of the year. Bound to get her wedding invite is Emily’s The Devil Wears Prada co-star Anne Hathaway, who actually set the couple up last November.
“Anne is thrilled,” says the source. “She has been a huge cheerleader of John and Emily’s relationship.”

Emily Blunt hates scary movies, slasher flicks and any
thing up on the big screen that has anything to do with the needless, heedless shedding of blood. But, as the British actress explained to MTV News, she signed up to star with Benicio Del Toro in the gothic horror film “The Wolfman” because along with the frights came amazing makeup effects from the best in the biz, a dark, character-driven story, and a particularly complex relationship with her onscreen co-star.
Now that the “Wolfman” trailer has been released, we can begin to see exactly what had Blunt so excited to take on the role. Read more…
