Tall, radiant, and sensual, British ingenue Emily Blunt caught the attention of the public and press when she starred (at age 20) opposite Natalie Press in Pawel Pawlikowski's gentle, finely told lesbian romance My Summer of Love (2004). In the eyes of many Americans, Blunt (who counted this as her first cinematic credit) seemed to arrive at the top instantaneously. In truth, Blunt -- a London native -- had established herself on British television (largely in BBC productions) several years prior. Summer, however, represented the actress' big global break. She plays a sexually experienced and playfully manipulative teen who seduces the younger and more impressionable Press into an impassioned love affair, while the latter's brother (Paddy Considine) becomes a born-again evangelical Christian and carries his faith to torturous, alienating extremes. The work garnered enthusiastic notices and performed well on the international festival circuit; it thus marked a fortuitous and brazenly intelligent cinematic bow for a young actress. Newsweek's David Ansen was not alone when he tagged Blunt (along with her co-star, Press) as a "major discovery." Variety's Derek Elley observed, "Blunt's perf as the mysterious, mixed-up Tamsin grows, adding a sense of menace which coincides with...Considine's loony Phil." After a supporting role in the U.S. miniseries Empire (about the Roman Empire), Blunt landed her second major break -- and culled even broader exposure -- with a supporting role in David Frankel's bittersweet drama The Devil Wears Prada. As Emily, the obnoxious (yet soft-hearted) assistant to fashion mogul Miranda Priestly (Meryl Streep), Blunt delivered a colorful and impressive performance. As a result, she received a 2007 Golden Globe nomination for Best Supporting Actress. Although she lost out to Jennifer Hudson at that ceremony, Blunt won the award for Best Supporting Actress in a Television Series, Mini-Series, or Motion Picture Made for Television for her work opposite Bill Nighy in Gideon's Daughter.Blunt followed Prada up with planned supporting roles in such features as The Snow Goose (2006), The Girl in the Park (2007), Wind Chill (2007), The Great Buck Howard (2007), and The Jane Austen Book Club (2007).In 2009 Blunt scored her largest starring role to date as the title character in the costume drama The Young Victoria. In 2010 she married The Office star John Krasinski, and in that same year they co-starred together in Gulliver's Travels. The couple would also each appear in cameo roles in 2011's The Muppets, written and co-starring Jason Segel with whom Blunt would co-star in the 2012 romantic comedy The Five-Year Engagement and rounded out her 2012 with the Golden Globe nominated Salmon Fishing in Yemen, romantic dramedy Your Sister's Sister and the sci-fi action thriller Looper. In 2014, she starred opposite Tom Cruise in the action-thriller Edge of Tomorrow and showed off her singing skills as the Baker's Wife in Into the Woods. The following year, she appeared in the Oscar-nominated Sicario, and in 2016, tackled the Snow White sequel The Huntsman: Winter's War and starred in the highly-anticipated adaptation of The Girl on the Train.

Serena The Talking Clacker says: Me neither. The other day we were in the beauty department and she held up this swimwear eyelash curler and said, 'What is this?' [both laugh]

Emily says: I just knew from the moment I saw her that she was going to be a complete and utter disa-- [Andy walks in looking chic and stylish]

Serena The Talking Clacker says: What exactly is she wearing?

Emily says: Her grandmother's skirt.

Serena The Talking Clacker says: I thought you were kidding.

Emily says: No, quite serious.

Emily says: Oh, I'm sorry. Do you have some prior commitment? Some hideous skirt convention you have to go to?

Nigel says: [whistles at Emily, whispers] Who's that?

Emily says: That, [points at Andy] I can't even talk about.

Yet I'm, and in charge of her schedule, her appointments and her expenses, and most importantly, um, I get to go with her to Paris for fashion week in the fall. I get to wear couture and go to all the shows and all the parties and meet all of the designers. It's be divine!

Emily says: Oh my God, Andy, you look to chic.

Andy Sachs says: Awe, thanks Em. You look so thin.

Emily says: Do I?! Oh it's for Paris. Well I'm on this new diet, it's very effective. Well, I don't eat anything and when I feel like I'm about to faint I eat a cube of cheese.

Emily says: I know. I'm just one stomach flu away from my goal weight.

Miss Piggy's Receptionist says: She has an opening in... Next September.

Emily says: I don't care if she was going to fire you or beat you with a red hot poker! You should have said, 'No!'

Andy Sachs says: Emily I didn't have a choice. You know how she is.

Emily says: Please, that is a pathetic excuse! [nurse walks in with tray of food, Emily grabs the pudding] Do you know what really get's me about this whole thing, is that you're the one who said you don't really care about this stuff, and you don't really care about fashion, you--you just wanted to be a journalist, I--what a pile of bullocks!

Andy Sachs says: Emily, I know you're mad, I don't blame you--

Emily says: Face it Andy, you sold your soul the day you put on that first pair of Jimmy Choo's. I saw it. And you know what really kills me about this whole thing, is the clothes that you're gonna get, I mean, you don't them you carbs for Christ sake! God! it's so unfair.

Andy Sachs says: I will be back in 15 minutes! Wish me luck! [runs out the door]

Emily says: No, shan't.

Emily says: A million girls would kill for this job.
