Emily Blunt Takes Her Lumps to Romance Matt Damon in 'The Adjustment Bureau'

The Adjustment Bureau – the new Philip K. Dick-inspired thriller about an otherworldly crew of mystery men who mean to ensure that God’s master plan unfolds just as intended – brought at least one of its stars to tears. And no, it wasn’t Matt Damon, who absorbs a surprise shot to the gut from his on-screen love interest, played by Emily Blunt.
 
It was Blunt herself, the London-born star of The Devil Wears Prada (2006) and last year’s The Young Victoria, whose six-day-a-week training in New York with Swan Pouffer, artistic director of the Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet, left her battered and emotionally bruised.
 

Emily Blunt Closes Mill Valley Film Festival

Those who came out to San Rafael for the closing night of the Mill Valley Film Festival on Sunday got a double shot of celebrity: Emily Blunt, the evening's leading lady, and her fiance, John Krasinski of The Office fame. Moments before the screening of Blunt's new film, The Young Victoria, due out just before Christmas, the doting duo pulled up to the Christopher B. Smith Rafael Film Center for the show.

Blunt, a vision in pink Moschino, stopped briefly to talk to us about her role as a teenage Queen Victoria.
