Emily Blunt has revealed playing Queen Victoria was not easy.
The Devil Wears Prada star had to don a heavy crown for the coronation scene in The Young Victoria.
Emily said: “The crown has left a dent in my head which they just cover with make-up so I don’t look frightening to you. But it’s remarkably heavy, but it wobbles so I have to make everything very slow.”
And the 26-year-old actress’s crown was not the only suffering she had to go through for the film. Read more…
After a flurry of recent speculation surrounding “Iron Man 2” and the involvement of actors Emily Blunt, Scarlett Johansson, Eliza Dushku and Mickey Rourke, director Jon Favreau might have cleared the air about the status of at least two of those actors last night.
“On E!’s post show at the red carpet of some party, Jon Favreau said that Fox exercised its option on Emily Blunt, and that she definitely won’t be in ‘Iron Man 2,’” reported a Playlist reader. The option mentioned refers to Blunt’s casting alongside Jack Black in “Gulliver’s Travels,” which is likely to endanger her “Iron Man 2? role. Read more…

Four new films are set to propel Emily Blunt to Hollywood superstardom. But, as Alan Jackson learns over a ginger beer at her London flat, she’ll always take Roehampton over Rodeo Drive.It’s that extraordinary day in London, the recent Monday when snow covers everything and no buses run, when schools are closed and strangers smile at each other in the street, thus acknowledging both the beauty and sudden emptiness of an unexpectedly transformed capital. Emily Blunt needs to be in Los Angeles by tomorrow evening but the news is that all flights out of town have been delayed, if not cancelled.
Resourceful, the actress has booked a 5pm seat on Eurostar and now will seek to make her onward journey via Paris. That means she cannot meet me for tea this afternoon, as had been planned.
