Emily Blunt has a little quote to share:
“I think actresses still think they have to be super-thin. There are actors who can turn up on the set 30lbs overweight and no one bats an eyelid. If a girl did that, they’d tell you to get in the gym, so I don’t think it’s changed that much. Actors can get away with a lot more because they can cover it up more.”
At the same time, Emily would love the change to gain weight for a role:
“I’d love to get fat. I’d eat everything in sight! Matt Damon said for ‘The Informant’ he was in heaven every day eating fried chicken and burgers and carbonara. That idea sounds very nice to me. It would be worth having to lose it afterwards for four months of eating like that.”
