Emily Blunt's stutter was so bad, she ''could never say [her] own name'' when she was younger.
Emily Blunt's stutter was so bad, she ''could never say [her] own name''.
The 36-year-old actress' speech impediment was ''ingrained'' in her by the age of 12 and she soon realised that ''pressurised'' situations caused her the most problems.
She said: ''School was interesting because there were certain things I couldn't do and wanted to, like read out my poem in class. I would never want to do that. I would hate it if the teacher called on me to answer something ... I didn't love calling my friends. I could never say my own name if someone said, 'What's your name?' Because you can't substitute a word out, which is what we tend to do to find a better flow. You substitute another word that's easier, and you can't substitute your name.

Krasinski got something of a hostile reception at customs when arriving in Britain to visit Blunt earlier this year.
When talking about his wife Emily Blunt in the past, John Krasinski has always been very much aware that he’s punching above his weight. However, it definitely registered with him when he had an unpleasant encounter with a British customs agent recently.
The former ‘The Office US’ alumnus, 38, has been married to English actress Blunt for nearly eight years, and they have two daughters together. Stopping by ‘The Tonight Show’ on Tuesday night (April 3rd), the star told host Jimmy Fallon about the time he visited his wife on the set of Mary Poppins Returns in Britain a few months ago.
“I married up, and don’t I know it,” Krasinski quipped, after the audience had cheered loudly after Fallon had mentioned Blunt’s name. “They don’t have to tell me; the customs agent in London did.”

Emily Blunt brings Mary Poppins back to the big screen with 'Mary Poppins Returns'.
When people think of Mary Poppins, the majority instantly think of Julie Andrews. The actress is synonymous with the role thanks to her taking on the magical nanny in the 1964 movie from director Robert Stevenson. Still a classic to this day, the world's eyebrows were raised when it was revealed Mary Poppins would be making a comeback, but with Emily Blunt in the leading role.
Emily Blunt will play Mary Poppins in 'Mary Poppins Returns'
'Mary Poppins Returns', which will of course come from Disney, is written by David Magee from a story he co-wrote with the film's director Rob Marshall, and John DeLuca. Blunt will star alongside the likes of Ben Whishaw, Emily Mortimer, Joel Dawson, Julie Walters, Colin Firth, and Meryl Streep in the film, with the flick being set 25 years after the original.

What do you do when you feel like your garden ornaments are in grave danger? You call upon Sherlock Gnomes, of course! At least, that's what these pottery lovebirds do when they find their new home under attack in the sequel to 'Gnomeo and Juliet' starring James McAvoy and Emily Blunt.
Garden gnome lovers (that's lovers who are garden gnomes, not lovers of garden gnomes) Gnomeo and Juliet feel like they've finally got their happily ever after; a glorious new garden surrounded by their dearest friends. That's all they've ever wanted. But when they discover that most of the gnomes have disappeared overnight, they begin to worry for their safety.
In a bid to solve the mystery of the missing gnomes, they enlist the help of genius detective Sherlock Gnomes, voiced by Johnny Depp. His methods are a little unorthodox to say the least, but when it turns out their situation is far worse than they feared, they have no choice but to follow his lead.

As the director of The Help, Tate Taylor may seem like an odd choice to make a movie based on Paula Hawkins' sexy mystery thriller bestseller. While the film features three central female characters, it also has a dark and twisty plot. Taylor manages to bring out plenty of insinuating textures in the characters to keep the audience intrigued, but he never quite gets a grip on the Hitchcockian elements of this story about identity and life expectations.
The title character is Rachel (Emily Blunt), who commutes into Manhattan every day, observing life in the suburban homes along the train line. She's particularly fascinated by one house and the blonde woman (Haley Bennett) who lives there with her lusty husband (Luke Evans). But the fact is that Rachel knows this woman: she's Megan, the nanny who takes care of the infant daughter of Rachel's ex-husband Tom (Justin Theroux) and his new wife Anna (Rebecca Ferguson), who live just a few doors down. And Rachel has a history of stalking them. Then she spots Megan with another man (Edgar Ramirez), just before Megan goes missing. So when Rachel emerges from yet another black-out drunken stupor, she begins to worry about what she might have done.
This is another challenging role for Blunt, who plays the shattered Rachel with raw grit. This is a woman who doesn't trust her own mind, knows that she drinks far too much and feels incapable of getting over her past mistakes. The film also occasionally circles around to show scenes from Megan's and Anna's perspectives, and both Bennett and Ferguson bring superbly unsteady textures to the roles. These are three complex, flawed women dealing with very big issues in their lives. And there are smaller but pivotal roles for the gifted Alison Janney (as a detective), Laura Prepon (as Rachel's flatmate) and Lisa Kudrow (as an old friend). By comparison the men are a bit simplistic.

Aside from success at the box office, there was nothing about 2012's rather uneven fantasy Snow White and the Huntsman that screamed out for a sequel. And indeed, this prequel/sequel hybrid doesn't quite make sense, muddling its premise by straining to keep Snow White herself out of the story (she's always just off screen) while spinning a tale that feels so derivative that we feel like we've seen it all before. The powerhouse cast does what it can, aided by some fabulous costumes, but it's impossible to escape the feeling that there's nothing to it.
Decades before her encounter with Snow White, Queen Ravenna (Charlize Theron) was just beginning her violent march toward power when her sister Freya (Emily Blunt) suffered a terrible tragedy. Believing that love itself betrayed her, Freya moves to another kingdom and inflicts a frozen winter on her subjects, raiding the surrounding lands for children she will raise to fight, with love between them forbidden. When her two top fighters, Eric and Sara (Chris Hemsworth and Jessica Chastain), can't help but fall for each other, they are severely punished. Years later, after Eric's adventure with Ravenna and Snow White, he sets out to get rid of Ravenna's pesky magic mirror, accompanied by four frisky dwarfs (Nick Frost, Rob Brydon, Sheridan Smith and Alexandra Roach). And this puts them all on a collision course with the icy Freya.
The script feels like it was written by a committee desperate to get something, anything on-screen. The first half of the film is essentially the backstory, and the second half is a Hobbit-style quest with moments of random Game of Thrones-style action thrown in simply to give the special effects team a workout. This isn't too surprising considering that the movie is the directing debut of effects expert Cedric Nicolas-Troyan. So if it makes little logical sense, at least it looks achingly cool, especially when the duelling divas are clad in spectacular frocks by Colleen Atwood.
