Personal life

Career

Blunt made her professional debut in "Bliss" a new play commissioned by the National Theatre, at the 2000 Edinburgh Festival while she was still an A-level student. In 2003, she made her screen debut in the British television drama "Boudica", about the life of the ancient British warrior-queen who fought the Romans. She also won considerable praise for her performance as the 16th-century queen Catherine Howard in the two-part British television drama "Henry VIII".

Blunt's breakout role was as Tamsin in the dark British movie, "My Summer of Love" in 2004, which depicted a story of deception and lesbian love in the English countryside. She shared an Evening Standard British Film Award for Most Promising Newcomer with co-star Nathalie Press.

In 2005 she co-starred with Bill Nighy and Miranda Richardson in the British TV drama "Gideon's Daughter", an original screenplay written and directed by Stephen Poliakoff, in which she played the troubled only child of New Labour spin doctor Gideon Warner, played by veteran British character actor Bill Nighy.

More recently, she starred opposite Meryl Streep and Anne Hathaway in the box-office success, "The Devil Wears Prada". Streep and Hathaway received most of the critical attention initially, but Blunt proved to be equally memorable with "Entertainment Weekly" naming her the Best Female Scene-Stealer in their end-of-summer special issue. She appeared at the 79th Academy Awards where she co-presented the award for best costume design with her "The Devil Wears Prada" co-star Hathaway. Blunt and Hathaway also lost weight for their roles in the film. In an interview with "Us Weekly", Hathaway said “I basically stuck with fruit, vegetables and fish (to slim down for the movie). I wouldn't recommend that. Emily Blunt and I would clutch at each other and cry because we were so hungry." Blunt also spoke about the weight loss, claiming she had to go "painfully thin".

Blunt later co-starred with Susan Sarandon in the independent drama "Irresistible". When Sarandon became attached to starring in another movie, "The Girl In The Park" she strongly suggested that director David Auburn should cast her. Blunt did audition for the part—she almost received the role—but lost out to Kate Bosworth.

As Jane Liddle in "Charlie Wilson's War", Blunt appeared in an erotically charged scene with Tom Hanks dressed only in an open shirt that revealed a white brassiere and lace-edged panties. [ [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZKfgVEzXObM YouTube - Emily Blunt In Charlie Wilsons War ] ] She has also worked on a number of upcoming movies: "The Young Victoria" (in which she plays the title character) and "The Wolf Man".
