Emily Olivia Leah Blunt (born February 23, 1983) is a British actress, best known for such movies as My Summer of Love, The Devil Wears Prada, Sunshine Cleaning, The Young Victoria, The Great Buck Howard, The Wolfman (2010), The Adjustment Bureau, Edge of Tomorrow, Sicario and Looper.

She's been married to John Krasinski since 2010, with whom she had a daughter named Hazel in 2014, and actor Stanley Tucci is her brother-in-law. note 


Selected filmography:


She provides examples of:

  • Action Girl: After some moments of this in Looper and a few forays of Action Survivor in The Adjustment Bureau, goes full-on this in Edge of Tomorrow, and Sicario she plays an FBI agent chasing a mysterious drug lord.
  • The Danza: invoked As Emily Charlton in The Devil Wears Prada.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Some of her roles and herself as well. Of the classic, dry British variety.
  • Dye Hard: invoked She's a brunette, but often plays a blonde. Not to mention her breakout role in The Devil Wears Prada being of a redhead.
  • Happily Married: To John Krasinski since 2010.
  • Fake American: invoked Probably plays this more than her own nationality. Most notably in Looper. Coincidentally, she became an American citizen in 2015. (Ironically, despite playing "Arizona Emily" when she appeared on Sesame Street she spoke in her normal voice.) Although the film version of The Girl on the Train moves the setting from England to the US, Blunt averts this trope here.
  • Fanservice: Several examples, like Charlie Wilson's War, where she's in a scene in her panties, and Edge of Tomorrow. Especially when she does that yoga pose in her introductory scene in the latter, particularly since the pose gets repeated several times. That said, she refused to do a topless scene in Sicario. Then again, said scene would have involved Benicio del Toro's character forcing her to strip naked and then physically humiliating her by pointing out the scars he gave her, so it would have been Fan Disservice.
  • Mean Character, Nice Actor: invoked The difference between her character in The Devil Wears Prada and herself are immense. She is friendly, humble, and is considered by the cast and crew to be a great pleasure to work with. Tellingly enough, she befriends a lot of the people she's worked with.
  • Old Shame: invoked
    • Starred in a quickly forgotten ABC miniseries, Empire, simply for the money. She later called it "the sad, little brother of Rome".
    • She doesn't seem too fond of Gulliver's Travels (2010), either, considering Fox forced her to star in it due to a contract she signed when she signed on for The Devil Wears Prada, thus missing her chance to star in Iron Man 2 and, since the character in question was Black Widow, many subsequent Marvel movies.
  • Precision F-Strike: In Looper
    LISTEN UP, FUCKER!!!! I have shot and buried three vagrants in the past year. If you want to know the Christís honest truth Iím starting to get a taste for it. So I donít care what hobo sob story youíve got, I get a dozen a week and it cuts no cash with me. Itís me and my husband here, weíre broke and angry at our lot in this world and heavily armed. So take some corn and move on, but if you show your face again I will cut you THE FUCK in half!"
  • Self-Parody: In The Muppets, she has a small role as the secretary of a prima donna fashion editor... only instead of Miranda Priestly, it's Miss Piggy.
  • What Could Have Been: invoked
    • Was cast as Black Widow for Iron Man 2 (which would had her in The Avengers and the following Marvel films), but had to pull out due to being contractually obligated by Fox (due to being in The Devil Wears Prada, a Fox film) to star in Gulliver's Travels (2010), which was a massive flop.
    • Was considered for Peggy Carter in Captain America: The First Avenger, but declined due to scheduling conflicts.
    • In yet another superhero example, the 2014 Sony hack revealed that Drew Goddard wanted her for the Scorpia role in the Sinister Six movie.
