Why Emily Blunt can't believe her luck

16 June 2012 4:07 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

When she was a teenager, Dame Judi Dench took her under her wing. A decade later, she's the toast of Hollywood – and married to actor John Krasinski. Life would be perfect, she says, if it hadn't made her so superstitious

Emily Blunt is describing her Ocd with a humorous wryness. "It's very weird. It's only happened in this past year. I've started getting very superstitious and fixating on things. I used to do it as a kid. I'd get these obsessive moments where I'd be in the car with my dad or something, and every time we went past a lamp-post I'd go like this…" She pauses to make six clucking noises with her tongue, flipping her head with each one to acknowledge the lamp-posts she's mentally passing. "And my dad would be like: 'What are you doing?' And I'd go, 'Sorry, I can't…" she clucks, "…stop."

She rolls her eyes and laughs drily. »
