Emily Blunt and Meryl Streep has been thick as thieves since filming The Devil Wears Prada back in 2005, and I love it because I love them and find it adorable when two awesome people turn out to be friends. I know, I’m weird. Anyhow, they recently got the chance to reunite for Into the Woods, where Meryl once again played an evil witch (of a different kind, this time around) and Emily was forced to serve her.
While on set, apparently Meryl almost injured herself and Emily caught her and it was all a very funny story that Emily told on The Late Show with David Letterman this week (via US Weekly).
“I did save her life. We were rehearsing a scene where she’s playing the witch and she’s supposed to jump onto the table with a cape and everything.”
“I just saw this thing happen in slow-motion… You know when you see something awful happen and it’s like the sound cuts out, you know? Meryl Streep’s foot got caught in her cape and we just started to watch her slowly topple head-first toward the concrete floor.”
“[Director] Rob Marshall and James Corden froze, didn’t move, and the pregnant woman caught her. I caught her!”
“She owes me! She should play my lowly dressmaker. She owes me bigtime. She was tormenting me in [Devil's Wears Prada], and now she’s tormenting me in this movie. She’s this witch that has cast this horrible spell on our house. I just said, ‘This is it.’ We couldn’t have any other dynamic now. ‘You just have to hate me in films.’”
“She owes me, that’s why I think at some point I should play the Queen of Versailles and she can be my lowly dressmaker,” Blunt added. “I did mention it to her. I think it’s a great idea and I mentioned it to her, and her response was, ‘Dream on.’ That’s Meryl Streep… She’s so amazing, it’s annoying at this point. It’s annoying.”
Ha, cute! Frankly, I would watch any movie that Emily Blunt and Meryl Streep did together, regardless of what it was about, whether it was nine hours long, whatever. I’m into it.

File this one under “Things You Definitely Didn’t Need to Know About Emily Blunt‘s Breasts”, if you will. After giving birth to John Krasinski‘s daughter Hazel a couple of months ago, Emily really lost all of her baby weight quickly. The secret is, as most Hollywood mothers have blabbed about repeatedly to any reporter who will listen, breastfeeding. Emily herself is into breastfeeding and didn’t have much choice, because apparently she produces that much milk. Ooookay.
Here’s Emily discussing her mammary experience on The Ellen Degeneres Show:
Well, that’s special. I’m gay and I love Emily Blunt (and I’m also aware of how breastfeeding works and am not grossed out by the human body), but this just rubbed me the wrong way. Some things are better left to yourself and your husband/best friend/not public TV audiences, girl.
On a side note, I love me some Emily Blunt/John Krasinski as a couple, and I also think the baby is sooooo cute, as John shared on Twitter this week:

Simon Cowell welcomed a baby boy into the world yesterday and today, it’s Emily Blunt and John Krasinski‘s turn. They had a baby girl today and named her Hazel. Office Jim tweeted,
Wanted to let the news out directly. Emily and I are so incredibly happy to welcome our daughter Hazel into the world today! Happy bday!
It interests me which celebs choose to let the news come out via their PR team and which tweet it directly. This happy couple and Cowell chose to tweet, whereas Owen Wilson used his PR team, as he doesn’t even have twitter. The question is, if a celeb tweets news like this directly, does it make you give more, or less, of a f-ck?
Anyway, congrats to the happy couple and the baby and all the happy bouncing celebrity babies.

Emily Blunt‘s got a baby all up in her, and it was put there by husband John Krasinski. Ms. Blunt is known best for playing the, “wait, is she attractive?” role in films, except of course in The Devil Wears Prada in which we could all agree that yes, she was damn attractive.
Mr. Krasinski is best known as Jim “please just dump Pam in this last season of The Office” Halpert. This will be their first child for both (Los Angeles Times). Blunt’s ex, Michael Bubbbelebbebebé just had a child of his own.
Congrats to all!
NOTE: The photo above is of a blonde Emily Blunt with a regular Tom Cruise. Not John Krasinski.
But seriously, look at them. I mean, I’m not going to pretend like I’m any kind of familiar with Emily Blunt’s work or that I’ve seen John Krasinski in anything besides of The Office (well, I saw the first five minutes of Brief Interviews with Hideous Men, but it was pretty hideous itself so we didn’t get any further than that). I don’t think I have to see anything other than this picture to be filled with a sort of vicarious but well-meaning joy at the thought of this couple’s wedding. I realize that might make me a tad bit creepy, but fuck it, they are precious and I love it.
Aight, aight. So I always have to admit whenever I critique people’s fashion that I really have no business doing so. I am wearing flared jeans as I write this. Yes, flared. They’re old and they’re really comfortable and you would wear them too if you didn’t have a will to live. ANYWAY! That being said, I was pretty disappointed across the board by the dress selections last night at The Critic’s Choice Awards. With the exception of a couple (Heather Graham, Emily Blunt, Amy Poehler), everyone looked like they bought their dress of the rack at Nordstrom in the really fancy section last minute. Lots of ill-fitting garments, lots of things that looked like last season’s trends or generally unstylish (from the dress to the shoes, I beg you to tell me: What the fuck is Sandy B. wearing in the photo above? Are those hooves?) Perhaps I’m being a bit harsh, or maybe I should consider that the Golden Globes are on Sunday and everyone’s saving their pretty for that, but you let me know what you think in the comments…
I don’t ever write posts where I talk about how much I hate Celebrity Girl X because she’s dating Celebrity Guy B, because I don’t EVER feel that way… Until now.
Emily Blunt spent her Saturday strolling around NYC, arm in arm with John Krasinski. Now, I have never met John Krasinski, and probably never will. And since I don’t know him, it’s impossible to like him. But that doesn’t stop me from feeling jealous of a relationship that has nothing to do with me between two people I’ve never met. Is that insane?
To be clear, it’s not prickly girl-on-girl hate I’m feeling. It’s just pure, unadulterated ENVY. I happen to think Emily Blunt is absolutely adorable, and she just happens to be dating one of the two celebrity guys I have a crush on. The fact that they both dress like normal, stylish people while strolling around Chelsea and hailing cabs just makes me like them even more.
Yo John, come to my Christmas party tonight. You can bring the Blunts.
