Emily Blunt is a popular British actress and a recipient of multiple accolades, such as a Golden Globe Award and a Screen Actors Guild Award. And that’s all in addition to the three nominations she’s received from the British Academy Film Awards. We can watch her incredible acting skills in many films, such as The Devil Wears Prada and A Quiet Place.
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!
One teacher was so sick of his students using their mobile phones to get the answers for his exam that he devised a plan to catch the cheaters. The trick turned out great results, as he caught 14 students by planting an impossible question.
An Exam Question With a Planted Answer Online Sprung the Trap
In the days before smartphones, cheaters had to get creative to sneak answers into the exam and avoid the watchful gaze of the teacher. However, in modern times, the iPhone or any other device could easily be connected to the Internet and supply cheaters with the answers they need to go through an exam. So, one teacher figured that modern problems required modern solutions and got to work to catch the students who were cheating on his exam. The genius plan involved adding an impossible question to a test and planting the fake answer online. So, anyone who would answer the question using the planted answer would definitely have cheated by looking for it online.
The Answer Was Posted by a Teaching Assistant Who Was in on the Ploy
The teacher posted the answer to the bogus question on a website where students go for help with answering exam questions. While they believed the teacher knew nothing about the site, they were wrong, and he was ahead of them. So, when the exam was over, students who’d answered using the fake answer were emailed and told they’d been caught. The students then took to Reddit to explain how the teacher made part B impossible to solve and set up the scheme about a month before the final.
Apparently, the teacher got a teaching assistant who had an account on the website to ask the question, which was distinctly worded and unique. The teacher then created his account, answering the question with a fake solution that was correct at first glance but was ultimately wrong. The clever trick worked, and out of the 99 students who were taking the exam, 14 used the fake answer the teacher had created.
