Emily #16 on Empire Online 100 Sexiest Movie Stars

Emily is listed #16 on Empire Online 100 Sexiest Movie Stars.

Emily Blunt
The newest Brit on the block, Blunt’s classical features and calm poise could see her become very big news over the next few years. She’s also got a wicked sense of humour, which is always sexy as hell.

Most alluring as… Jane Liddle, a small cameo in Charlie Wilson’s War that revealed, completely out of the blue, that the Brit girl from The Devil Wears Prada had legs that just won’t quit. Where the hell did they come from?

Interests include… She likes to play the cello, sing and go horseback riding. Thankfully, she doesn’t do them all at the same time.
