Emily Blunt’s biographyEmily Blunt always surprises her fans by appearing in the most unexpected images. The hysterical secretary, Queen Victoria, an unhappy alcoholic ... Who else will the same Blunt, whom Meryl Streep herself called the best young actress of our time to decide to play?
ChildhoodThe actress, who was destined to conquer her native Britain, and then the whole world, was born on February 23, 1983, in central London, in Wandsworth.
The parents tried to give their children all the best. The children studied in prestigious schools. Emily was fond of music and loved to ride horses but she suddenly began to stutter at the age of ten. Visits to speech therapists did not give any result, meditation, relaxation, and treatment courses by psychoanalysts were useless. Doctors were giving up: the amusing and sociable girl before was becoming a closed shy child.
It wasn’t me who chose the profession, the profession chose me
The beginningIn 1999 Emily entered college, where she studied acting, literature, and drama. For participating in The Royal Family production, the girl was named the best beginning actress.
Accepting the offer to play in the My Summer of Love drama picture in 2004, the actress took a rather bold step. Emily performed the role of one of the heroines in love, Tamsin. The second girl was played by Natalie Press. The scenes of intimate closeness between the friends, even very innocent, added daring rebellious shades to the growing popularity of Emily. Then-famous Paddy Considine also played in the picture.
That same BluntThe screening of the scandalous book by Lauren Weisberger, which tells about the backstage of the world of high fashion, became a cult picture immediately after the release. The Devil Wears Prada is called one of the most beautiful films of New Hollywood, the costumes cost more than a million dollars, artist Patricia Field was awarded an Oscar for their design, as well as Meryl Streep for the role of bitchy Miranda.
Best rolesIn 2007 Emily, who had already taken her place among the Hollywood luminaries, starred in the Wind Chills film. The mystical drama was sustained in an atmosphere of increasing anticipation of something obscure and frightening. Director Gregory Jacobs used a complex and very rare trick, which consisted of a constant long shot with an emphasis on the faces of the two main characters. This director's finding allowed to give the picture even more drama and highlighted the depth of Emily’s talent, who played the role of a student. Ashton Holmes also took part in the film.
The actress calls herself a happy woman and says that all her dreams and desires come true. One of Emily’s desires was to play in the same project with her husband and it was fulfilled in 2018. John was the director of the experimental, almost wordless horror drama A Quiet Place, who also played the role of the husband of Emily’s character. Critics called it an ideal horror film, which was not full of bloody scenes but amazed by the frightening atmosphere of impending disaster.
Emily Blunt’s personal lifeSince the end of 2004 the actress dated Canadian musician of French ancestry Michael Bublé. To be with her beloved, Emily bought an old mansion in downtown Vancouver for two million dollars. Two years later, the couple forcedly broke up because of the mismatch of the work schedules and Emily’s workload, as well as the musician’s excessive jealousy.
The actress’s favorite perfume is the Opium. In 2012 the actress starred in a clip dedicated to the legendary fragrance. Emily was wearing only smoking, the cult object of the luxurious house of Yves Saint Laurent.
