The star — who shot to fame playing snooty magazine assistant Emily Charlton in The Devil Wears Prada — says her friends are the secret to her acting talent, but she refuses to reveal the individuals who have inspired her performances through fear they may never talk to her again.
“I never tell who it is I base my character quirks on in case they get offended — but I do base them on real people,” she said.
“As an actor I see myself a bit like a sponge where I absorb people’s different characteristics. It makes my characters on screen more realistic.”
Blunt, 27, recently admitted she’s addicted to watching reality TV.“I like Project Runway at the moment,” she said last week. “I love that show. I love Heidi Klum. Have you ever seen a pregnant woman look so good as Heidi?
“I did watch a bit of The Bachelor too which was riveting. Well, it’s so gross it’s riveting. I just like seeing the human behavioral thing kind of at its worst in some ways. It’s like a sick pleasure.”
