Emily Blunt was at LAX this week, hiding her eyes in shades as she checked in. Her movie The Young Victoria comes out on March 6 — will you see it or skip it?. While she was filming the period drama she answered a few questions about the movie, costume and process of filming. She swaps her real life boyfriend John Krasinski to play opposite Keira Knightley's boyfriend Rupert Friend, and here's what she had to say:
- So, lots of sitting around today…
Lots of sitting… Yes, which is rather nice actually if you’re in a corset. That’s a relief. It’s a big relief. I’m quite overheated though with all these layers. The big cloak is like carrying a bear on my shoulders so that’s interesting.
- What about the crown?
The crown has left a dent in my head which they just cover with make-up so I don’t look frightening to you. But it’s remarkably heavy.
- How have you found playing Victoria?
It’s wonderful. It’s exciting, it’s a challenge to say the least. She was a remarkable girl and so of course you want to do her justice. And there’s a big journey to play with her from this young, rather stubborn teenager to a rather magnetic queen very much in command of herself. It’s a big arc to find and particularly when you shoot out of order, it’s tricky to maintain that. But I’m loving her. I’d read a lot about her before I did this and, contrary to popular belief, she was when she was younger a feisty and emotional and intelligent, vibrant person. I think that people mistake her for being this widowed, mourning queen. So it’s exciting that we’re going to refresh people’s opinion of Victoria in this.
