English bombshell, actress Emily Blunt, who’s best known for her role in the movie ‘The Devil Wears Prada’, graces the cover of Manhattan, the magazine’s June 2012 issue, where the 29 year old opens up about growing up, her marriage as well as future family plans.
The actress that stars in this month’s ‘Your Sister’s Sister’ movie looks incredible in the spread shot by acclaimed photographer David Roemer, as she dons a gorgeous Valentino chiffon dress among others, right before sitting down for a chat with one of the magazine’s writers. The actress’ oh-so-glamorous look makes an instant impression, but apparently her day-to-day style is much more relaxed.
Ms. Blunt, who grew up in Roehampton, a suburb in London with a lawyer father and a former actress mother plus three siblings, says that she loved her childhood especially the part of ‘make-belief’. The actress tells Manhattan that:
“I loved the make-believe aspect of life. I was that really annoying friend you didn’t want to stay over because I’d be waking you up at 5 in the morning to pretend that the room was on fire.”
The actress recalls that her ‘struggle’ to make it big in the industry wasn’t all that much a ‘struggle’ and that things just seemed to fall into place. She recalls a moment in which she had that revelation about what she wanted to do, as she was playing a role in ‘The Royal Family’ at Theatre Royal Haymarket in 2001 and says that her co-star told her ‘Listen, darling, you’re going to be great. And if anyone gives you any trouble, you come straight to me.’
She says that she has a story that most actors hate, as most of them have to struggle to make it in the industry. She tells the magazine that:
“I really fell into the business, which is a story actors hate, because they’re like, ‘F%#k you! I’ve been struggling for years!’”
The actress, who’s found love with actor John Krasinski, whom she married in 2010, says that her marriage is a subject that she finds difficult to talk about, especially when it comes to describing it and how it works. Although she keeps things private, the actress does reveal that she’s happy and that she’s having a blast with her hubby as she tells the magazine that:
“This is what I find difficult about talking about my marriage: It’s hard to sum up something that’s so vital and means everything to you in a sound bite. Do you know what I mean? All I can say is that it’s an effing blast. It’s just great, and I’m so happy.”
However, when it comes to expanding her family, Emily says that it’s something that she and her hubby want but not quite yet. The actress says:
“We want to have children; I just don’t know when yet. I’m just not sure about the timing of all of that. We’re both from big families so I think it’s something we want.”
