British actress Emily Blunt is reportedly in talks to take on the role of the iconic Mary Poppins in an upcoming sequel to the 1960's classic. 

The sequel will reportedly take place twenty years after the events of the first film and is to take plot lines from other P.L Travers' books about Mary's continuing adventures with the Banks family. 

Emily, who we think we make an excellent Mary though we don't envy having to fill Julie Andrews' incredibly large shoes, was a favourite for the role ever since she worked with Disney execs on 2014's musical offering Into the Woods. 

Rob Marshall, who directed Into the Woods, Chicago and Pirates of the Caribbean, is set to direct the fantasy sequel. 

Though talks are ongoing, many news outlets are reporting that Emily's recent announcement that she is pregnant with her second child to John Krasinski may influence her decision on whether to take the role. 

The deal has not been finalised but according to Variety, Disney are eager to get production rolling. 

The original 1964 movie saw Julie Andrews play the infamous magical nanny who changes the fortunes of a miserable family in London. 



Representatives of gorgeous Hollywood couple John Krasinski and Emily Blunt have just confirmed to US Weekly that the pair are expecting their second child. 

The happy couple are already proud parents to daughter Hazel, who is now 23 months old. 

The 32-year-old actress started dating John in 2008 before the couple married in a private ceremony in 2010. 

The family are pretty busy at the moment as Emily is filming scenes for upcoming flick The Girl on the Train while John is on an intense promo tour for his new flick 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi.

And John was busy gushing over his wife in an interview with the Daily Beast published yesterday. 

“I’ll be really honest with you, I was never the coolest kid on the block, so I never had the ‘good ol’ days’ of a playboy type of lifestyle. So for me, the best days of my life started when I met my wife.

"That’s the truth, it’s not just me saying it because it sounds nice on a card. She’s one of the coolest people, she’s so talented, she’s beautiful, and she’s certainly out of my league.

"And so all of a sudden all of the things I loved, I got to find someone who loved that about me. There was a lot of my life that she hadn’t experienced and a lot of her life that I hadn’t experienced, so all of a sudden we got to start doing things that we liked.

"When you’re lucky enough to meet your one person then life takes a turn for the best. It can’t get better than that.”

Can we get a universal "AWWWWH!" 


Does anyone remember when Emily Blunt and Michael Bublé were an item?

Well back in 2008 they were, and had been for three years. Emily, 32, has been doing the rounds of late to promote her new film Sicario. She sat down with DJ Howard Stern when he asked her about what really prompted the breakup between the pair.

Now married to John Krasinski, Emily apparently found it very difficult to talk about her past relationship saying: “I don’t know. It’s complicated.”

The host had asked Emily about Michael’s alleged cheating.

While Emily maintains that they “had a great time” together and she still loves his family, the cheating rumours were apparently off-limits.

“I never want to talk about it. I can’t do it,” she added.

Emily and John have been married since 2010 and have a one year old daughter, Hazel. Michael’s wife is pregnant with the couple’s second child. The couple also have a two-year old son together, Noah.

Aside from discussing her ex-boyfriends, Emily also brought back some memories from her time working on The Devil Wears Prada.

She revealed that one of her most popular lines from the film was actually inspired by a frustrated mom in the supermarket.

“I saw a mother speaking to her child in a supermarket when we were shooting that film.

She yelled at her kid and she kind of opened and closed her hand and she goes, 'Yeah, I’m hearing this, and I want to hear this.”

The actress added that it is a line that fans will still often quote back to her now, more than 10 years since the film was first released. We’re not surprised, it was a pretty amazing moment.


Just when we thought Ed Sheeran couldn’t get any more perfect, he has. Warning, serious feelings ahead!

On Monday night in New York City the singer, 24, opened up about coping with his stutter as a youngster and how none other than rapper Eminem helped him overcome the issue.

At an American Institute For Stuttering benefit gala, Ed said his stutter was a result of a procedure he underwent to help clear a birthmark from his face.

He said that despite trying speech therapy and homeopathy, it was rap music that helped the most. He recalls that “my Uncle Jim told my dad that Eminem was the next Bob Dylan — it’s pretty similar, it’s all just storytelling — so my dad bought me The Marshall Mathers LP when I was nine years old, not knowing what was on it.”

Ed learned every word on the album even though Eminem raps at a ridiculously fast pace. And says that it was what really helped him to cope with his stutter.

The singer is now calling on all youngsters to embrace their “weirdness”. He pointed out that "most of the people I knew that were normal in school are all pretty dull right now — they go to the gym four times a week and look at themselves in the mirror a lot, but they don't really have a lot to say.”

Alongside Emily Blunt, the successful singer (and Taylor Swift's BFF), wanted young people to know that it’s totally cool to be very uncool and said that “having things that make you different help you become an interesting person.”

While in school Sheeran was labelled a weirdo but that he didn't let it bother him. Now he enjoys the fact that his success has made him a household name while some of his former classmates aren't exactly enjoying the same level of success.

He told Blunt "one of the cool kids from school now does my plumbing! That's a fact!" So being a little odd has it's benefits it seems. 

Ed Sheeran, inspiring, talented and also single. Form an orderly line ladies.



Could this possibly be the most exciting news we've heard all week?

The Devil Wears Prada is being made into a stage musical. 

Broadway producer Kevin McCollum told The Hollywood Reporter that a partnership with 20th Century Fox means many films will be turned into musicals, starting with the 2006 film that starred Anne Hathaway and Meryl Streep.

The actors have not yet been confirmed but we all know Meryl Streep and Anne Hathaway are well capable of singing, lets not forget Mamma Mia and Les Misérables. Anne even won an Oscar for the role. 

Both Meryl Streep and Emily Blunt have said they would consider returning, if a sequel was on the cards for the second book by Lauren Weisberger: Revenge Wears Prada: The Devil Returns.

When asked about the possibilty of a sequel, Emily said: "I think I would do it. We all were told to go on these skinny diets for the first time, but I'd be up for it."

Even if they don't get a part in the musical, we're sure it will be equally as good as the movie, if not better. 

We can't even deal with the excitement…




At last night’s Critic’s Choice Awards, Emily Blunt won the Best Actress award for her role in Edge of Tomorrow.

As she took to the stage, however, she was interrupted by a stage-crasher! Thankfully, this wasn't a Taylor-Kanye sort of interruption, but actually her husband, John Krasinski who just couldn't hold in his delight for his wife. 

The couple, who married in 2010 hugged and John gave his wife a kiss before she went on to make her acceptance speech.

Viewers were left somewhat bemused as to why John decided to interrupt Emily’s moments before she briefly explained that he was presenting an award next and was therefore stage-side. Ah, we see…

John swiftly made his way off the stage before Emily said: "Sorry, I've ruined that." Aww, we disagree, Emily, we thought it was absolutely perfect!

Seriously, how cute are those two?! 



Who the hell has the nerve to block Hollywood royalty, Meryl Streep, out of a selfie…for the second time?! Emily Blunt and Anna Kendrick, that’s who!

The three gorgeous actresses appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show where they discussed the famous Oscar selfie which pretty much broke the internet (Sorry, Kim!) and poor old Meryl opened up about how disappointed she was that she barely featured in it.

Ellen backed up Meryl and said: “The whole idea was I was going to get a selfie with Meryl and then everybody else jumped in and Meryl was barely in the selfie!”

So, in a bid to make it up to The Devil Wears Prada star, the ever-hilarious Ellen huddled in with the three ladies and posed, but mischievous Emily and Anna couldn’t resist the opportunity to wind up Meryl and the pair blocked that Oscar-winner out of the snap like two bold kids!

Upon showing the selfie to the audience, Meryl pretended to be annoyed before breaking into gales of laughter and posing for yet another shot. Third time lucky, perhaps?!

Girls, could we actually love her any more?!




We're delighted! Actor Stanley Tucci and wife Felicity Blunt are expecting a child together!

Stanley revealed the news in an interview yesterday. "I'm very excited to be a dad. It's incredible," said the 53-year-old. 

The Hunger Games star met Felicity, sister of actress Emily Blunt, in 2006 during the filming of The Devil Wears Prada. They married during a secret ceremony in 2012 and this is their first child together.

Stanley said he thinks Felicity will be a "great" mother and admitted he has no preference for a girl or a boy. "I'm most excited to have a baby with Felicity and for the baby to be healthy… The sex is of no concern to me… The sex of the baby, that is." Cheeky!

Baby Tucci won't be short of a playmate anyway – Emily Blunt and husband John Krasinski welcomed their daughter Hazel back in February. 

And as for babysitters, Stanley already has three older children and two stepchildren with his late wife Kathryn who sadly died of breast cancer in 2009.

Congrats Stanley and Felicity!



We think it’s safe to assume John Krasinski is in the dog house for the next few nights.

Deciding it was time his wife got her Ice Bucket Challenge done, he surprised her as she unloaded the shopping by throwing water all over her.

Let’s just say, she doesn’t look happy.

That’s not before she was able to name who she wanted to do the challenge next – Steve Merchant!

Hmm, we’re not sure if this is set up or not but either way it’s super cute.

Can anything ever beat Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck's video? No, no it cannot. 


Graham Norton certainly had a star studded couch last night, with guests such as Charlize Theron, Seth McFarlene, Emily Blunt and of course, Tom Cruise.

The highlight of the night was of course when Graham convinced Seth do his hilarious impersonation of Liam Neeson’s, Taken speech using Kermit the Frog’s voice.


To her horror!



As double dates go this looks like an interesting one. George Clooney and his girlfriend Amal Alamuddin were spotted out with another famous couple: Emily Blunt and her husband John Kransinki.

Who knew that these were four were great friends but it seems to be the case, as the two couples were seen grabbing dinner together at a Sushi bar in  California.

The double date seemed to have been a success anyway, as Amal was seen joking with Emily and John outside the restaurant.
