A giant congratulations to Emily & John on the exciting news!
Another baby for Blunt! Emily Blunt is pregnant and expecting her second child with her husband, John Krasinski, her rep confirms exclusively to Us Weekly.
Blunt, 32, is currently filming The Girl on the Train, which was adapted from Paula Hawkins’ bestselling novel of the same name. She was photographed wearing an oversized coat on set in NYC on January 20.
Krasinski, meanwhile, has been busy promoting his new movie, 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi, at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. (The couple both attended the Dallas, Texas, premiere of 13 Hours on January 12.)
Blunt and the Office alum tied the knot in Italy in 2010 after two years of dating, and welcomed daughter Hazel, now 23 months, in February 2014.
Earlier this month, Krasinski, 36, gushed over his daughter during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
“She is talking. She is talking a lot. She is starting to do little bits. It’s hilarious,” he said at the time. “[Instead of saying] ‘Where’s Daddy?’ she asks, ‘Where is that Daddy?'”
The Aloha star also mused that Hazel sometimes has a British accent like her famous mum. “She says, ‘Wuter,'” he said, laughing. “Just wait till she gets to kindergarten when people go, ‘What’s that accent?’ And she’ll go, ‘Water! Water!'”
John appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and he talked about the first time he met Emily.
Last night Emily attended the National Board of Review Gala last night and looked beautiful in a blue lace dress.
I love this article from E!Online! I love how cute John & Emily are!
John Krasinski has never looked better, yet Emily Blunt “hates” his body.
Stephen Colbert showed a still of the actor’s shirtless scene in the upcoming movie 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi on The Late Show Tuesday, asking, “Did you always want this?”
The former TV star smiled and joked, “I looked that in The Office. You just didn’t see it much.” Colbert laughed and told Krasinski, “That show would have been successful if you only had.”
To get in shape for his role as CIA contractor Jack Da Silva, Krasinski said he had to put in “a lot of work” in very little time. “And it’s real work, too. I thought it would be like, ‘Yeah, let’s eat a couple Power Bars and do push-ups.’ And he was like, ‘No. It’s going to be a living hell for six to eight weeks.’ We went two sessions a day with my trainer, Jason Walsh. He’s amazing. He did Bradley Cooper in American Sniper and all these great people.” Krasinski said Walsh had him doing “two-a-days, pulling sleds, pushing weights. I was like, ‘What about these bicep curls?’ He was like, ‘No, it’s so much harder than that.’ Like, ‘You have to do 80 push-ups by tomorrow.'”
Before training for the movie, Krasinski confessed, “I couldn’t do one pull-up. I was like, ‘How hard are these pull-ups, really?'”
Did Blunt learn to love his new body? “She hates it,” he said of the Golden Globe winner. “She would way prefer to have doughy guy back.”
“‘Doughy’ is a strong word,” Colbert said.
“No, like sweet-faced,” Krasinski clarified.
“You’re still sweet-faced,” Colbert assured him.
Colbert revisited the shirtless still of Krasinski later in the interview, saying, “You have a great career, you’ve got that, you’ve got Emily Blunt. Are you trying to make people resent you?”
“No,” the actor said. “Listen, I’m one of the luckiest guys in the world.”
Blunt happens to be in incredible shape, too, thanks to rigorous training for roles in movies like Edge of Tomorrow and Sicario. In fact, her workouts sometimes scare Krasinski. “I watched her fight train, because we trained out in the same gym. And then she did very extreme fight training, and I walked by a door just to be like, ‘Hey! How’s it going?'” he recalled. “And she was punching and elbowing this bag that was starting to open with, like, fluff in it, and all I could think was, ‘Please don’t have a nightmare tonight! Please don’t have a nightmare tonight!'”
Given Blunt’s accomplishments, Colbert was curious how Krasinski landed such a wife. “When I met her I was so nervous. Everybody’s like, ‘What was your line?’ And it was just this: [Silence]. And she was like, ‘Hi! How are you?’ And I was like, ‘Pretty good.’ I just, like, touched her face, and she was like, ‘Don’t do that,” the actor said. “Then they called security and we got married.”
“No green card situation?” Colbert asked.
“No,” Krasinski said. “Although she now is a citizen, so…Oh, boy! I hope she sticks around.”
Krasinski was on The Late Show to promote 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi, in theaters Jan. 15.
“I think people think they know a lot about Benghazi because it’s been in the news a lot…There’s been so much talked about it politically that I think we’ve overlooked the human story of these six guys and what they did that night,” he said of the premise, based on the 2013 book 13 Hours by Mitchell Zuckoff. “Basically, it’s six guys who were not active duty. So, they’re not in the military. They have no obligation to go help anybody. In a drop of a hat they left and put their lives on the line, and were in my opinion, the true definition of heroism. I think we tell a lot of superhero stories and it’s nice to tell a story about real heroes.”
Entertainment Weekly gives us the first two stills from The Girl On The Train.
Emily Blunt boards a deadly mystery in the big-screen adaptation of the blockbuster best-seller
“You can’t avoid the puns with this movie — she’s a train wreck,” director Tate Taylor says of Rachel Watson, the unemployed alcoholic at the center of his new thriller, The Girl on the Train. Based on Paula Hawkins’ best-selling novel, the film stars Emily Blunt as the emotionally damaged Rachel, who develops a voyeuristic obsession with a couple — whom she dubs Jason and Jess (Luke Evans and Hayley Bennett) — that she spies during her daily commute, a journey that just so happens to take her past the home her ex-husband (Justin Theroux) shares with his new wife (Rebecca Ferguson).
Rachel has dreamed up an elaborate fantasy life for “Jason and Jess,” but her illusions are shattered when she accidentally witnesses an act of betrayal, followed shortly thereafter by the young woman’s disappearance. Rachel inserts herself into the investigation, but her motives are murky. “Rachel does things that we all think, and we all wish we could do,” says Taylor (The Help).
Although Gone Girl comparisons are inevitable — yes, it’s a female-powered mystery anchored by an unreliable narrator adapted from a wildly popular book — Rachel has little in common with Amy Dunne. The character is grappling not only with her addiction, but also with a profound sense of isolation. While the book is set in and around London, the film shifts the location to Manhattan and its tranquil suburbs. Rachel is still a Brit, though.
“It adds another layer of loneliness,” Taylor says. “She’s trying to reclaim or redefine herself, and yet she’s not in her native land.”
The Girl on the Train arrives in theaters Oct. 7.
I have added captures to the gallery from Emily’s role as Violet Barnes in the film The Five-Year Engagement.
The British actress is the lead in the film adaptation of bestselling book The Girl On The Train, by Paula Hawkins.
The thriller follows Blunt’s character Rachel Watson, an alcoholic who becomes obsessed with a couple she sees on her daily commute.
It is set in London and inspired by the author’s District line journey – although the film version has been transplanted to New York.
The movie, which also stars Justin Theroux and Rebecca Ferguson, will be released next autumn.
Blunt’s transformation impressed author Hawkins when she visited the set. She said: “They actually made Emily Blunt look like a woman who lets herself get into a complete mess.”
Blunt, 32, spoke about the role at an event in New York for her crime thriller Sicario, hosted by the Peggy Siegal Company.
She said: “I try not to repeat anything. In the spring I played this evil ice queen villain in a fantasy [The Huntsman: Winter’s War]. I’m now playing the worst looking alcoholic in the world so it’s fun.
“Trust me – I can show you a picture. I think I frighten my own child! It’s that bad!”
Blunt has a 22-month-old daughter, Hazel, with her American actor husband John Krasinski.
The actress, who has had five Golden Globe nominations, is tipped for her first Oscar nod next month for her performance as an FBI agent in Sicario, which also stars Benicio Del Toro and Josh Brolin.
One fight sequence in the film affected her deeply. “I went home and I couldn’t sleep for two or three days in a row and it was odd,” she said. “I’ve never had that experience as an actor before. I’ve usually managed to have a pretty good detachment from work.”
Of the promotional circuit, she said: “To be honest when you’re talking about a film that you’re immensely proud of and which is so complex, it makes it a lot easier.
Emily’s husband John Krasinski is on the cover of the new issue of Men’s Health Magazine. In the issue they asked him about Emily and he responded with:
“It’s my favorite thing to talk about.”

Indie Wire shared a clip from the MOMA screening of Sicario this week.
We’ve been throwing superlatives at Denis Villeneuve’s “Sicario” all year, and it’s hardly a surprise the white-knuckle, nerve-jangling thriller landed in the number two slot of our 20 Best Films Of 2015. At every level, the movie is executed with a high level of proficiency, and no element of the production is left as an afterthought. Two of the biggest reasons the film is such a success recently sat down for a conversation about the picture.
Actress Emily Blunt and cinematographer Roger Deakins got together this week as part of MoMA Film’s Contenders series for an in depth discussion about “Sicario.” It’s a rare talk in that it’s not often you find actors and cinematographers speaking about their working relationship, and the discussion extends from there, diving into the process of collaboration and much more.
It’s a fascinating talk, and it’s a reminder of the tremendous skill sets of those involved in bringing “Sicario” to life. Watch below.
