Emily Blunt told The Telegraph in 2005 that she would rather be a poor theater actress than appear "as a spear carrier in a Tom Cruise movie." A fact she tried to deny—"I never said that!"—when the newspaper interviewed her on May 25. "What an awful thing to say," she insisted. When the reporter provided the clip, Blunt responded with good humor. "Well, at least I'm not a spear carrier."
And then turned the interview back to parenthood by gushing about almost four-month-old newborn Hazel and describing domestic life with husband John Kransinski. She jokes, "I do tend to sweep down the stairs in a ball-gown every night saying, 'Tell me I look beautiful.'"
In an interesting turn of events, Blunt stars with Cruise in the new sci-fi thriller Edge of Tomorrow, which will arrive in national theaters on June 6th.
The British actress plays Rita Vrataski, who fights aliens alongside Cruise's character. A role she owes to Cruise, who offers only praise in an interview with Access Hollywood. "She's got great taste, as her choices in terms of within scenes, tremendous power on screen."
"She's a great leading lady but a character actor." The Devil Wears Prada actress received more praise when he admitted "I've been watching her a long time."
And Blunt has looked stunning in three different premiere looks on May 28.
Sierra Marquina’s commentary in US Weekly’s “Emily Blunt Stuns at Premieres in Three Different Cities All in One Day!” describes the various looks.
At the London screening, she wore an Osman design in pink, blue, and red paisley-print with convenient pockets. Pink heels, slight curls framing her face and simple hoop earrings rounded out the look.
However, for the Paris appearance, she looked sleek in a severe up 'do and a hint of make-up along her eyes and lips. Modern design earrings and a few rings were the only adornment for the star. But David Koma's half-sheer, half-leather two-piece outfit looked stunning on the actress.
The high-neck, cropped and netted top worked well with the velvet flocking detail on the leather pencil skirt. The bottom half of the skirt was sheer with the same, matching design from top. Simple, classic Christian Louboutin peep-toes finished off the sophisticated style.
For New York, the 31-year-old chose head-to-toe Prada in a strapless red gown highlighting her contoured seams along the waist and peaked neckline. Wearing gold Lorraine Schwartz bracelets and large, bright earrings, she stands out with the fuchsia Prada purse.
And how does she look so stunning in the three separate looks? She admitted the role required "martial arts, gymnastics, weight training, and sprint training." Of course, the mom-of-one can't really talk about the film since "I haven't seen it finished."
And she's really proud that Hazel will be able to see her mom "playing a strong female."
