The Actress Leaves Immediately
Emily Blunt has plenty of movies tucked under her belt, and we don’t doubt she’ll have many more such as The Girl on the Train or Young Victoria, and she probably enjoyed playing those roles as much as we enjoyed watching the production. But she says that if she happens to read the three specific words – strong female lead – she simply wants to call it quits!
Emily Blunt Gets Bored
When the actress reads that specific phrase in a script, she knows it’s time to be ‘out’ of the production. She explains that such a phrase means the female lead will be boring and quiet – she prefers more interesting roles. According to the 39-year-old, when a lead is supposed to be strong, she is expected to have almost no emotion, and she prefers a character with a secret – someone with buoyancy and more complex emotions.
Others Are Fans of Labels
Emily opens up about her brother-in-law, another famous actor – Stanley Tucci. She shares that while he was shocked to receive a racy label because of an Instagram video of him making a drink – he also quite enjoyed it. He even agreed and said, “I mean, yeah!” So, she may not be happy with receiving labels on scrips, but others certainly are.
Although hard to believe, actors and actresses have nit-picky qualities when selecting the scripts they read and the movie roles they take on. Some, like our lovely Emily Blunt, look for specific words that trigger them and make them not want the part. To each their own!
