Emily Blunt is a British actress known for playing a number of roles alongside some of the greatest casts in comedy, fantasy, action, musical, and drama. Before Blunt broke into Hollywood films with “The Devil Wears Prada”, she was an already established starlet in her hometown with her stage debut in “The Royal Family” and her breakthrough performance on the silver screen in “My Summer of Love”. In 2006, she found her breakout role with “The Devil Wears Prada” as a sarcastic, over-the-top fashionista alongside Meryl Streep, Anne Hathaway, and Stanley Tucci. Then her career continued its steady rise with a number of supporting roles in “Dan in Real Life” with Steve Carell and “Charlie Wilson’s War” alongside Tom Hanks, Amy Adams, and Julia Roberts. In 2009, she finally earned her title role in the period drama, “The Young Victoria”. Then, she quickly became the successful Emily Blunt we now await to see as the new Mary Poppins.
In 2011, Blunt became the new spokeswoman for Yves Saint Laurent’s Opium fragrance, which was already under fire for its advertising that was deemed “irresponsible and unacceptable for broadcast.” Blunt didn’t seem to mind a little controversy though, “There’s such an aura of scandal around this perfume that I was quite attached to the idea of doing it from the word go. I’d been asked to do a couple of things but none were as classy as this.” Then, for the premiere of her movie “The Five Year Engagement”, which was just one day short of 420, Blunt wore a dress covered in green leaves that resemble marijuana leaves, from Jason Wu’s pre-fall 2012 collection.
