If You Want A Pic With Emily Blunt… YOU CAN FORGET IT!
According to Page Six per a recent spread in Vanity Fair, Emily Blunt doesn’t want to take a selfie with you. So bugger off, commoner.
Now, if you don’t know who Emily Blunt is, she played the really snooty-assistant-chick in The Devil Wears Prada (I LOVE THAT MOVIE SO MUCH), and she’s married to “Jim” from The Office (John Krasinski).[AdSense-A]
She’s also the chick who regretted becoming an American citizen when she watched the Republican Presidential debate back in 2015. Bless her heart.
Original post is from my favorite ladies the Chicks On The Right. I love them! Per quote here’s why I love them, but first I’ll just say I honestly don’t even recognize Emily Blunt. If I ran into her on the street she’d look like regular EVERY DAY JOE to me. So I wouldn’t even ask for a selfie anyway.
When it comes to being a movie star, she has some opinions about how social media is apparently useless when it comes to promoting movies:
“I don’t think it does shit, to be honest. I think a movie lives or dies on word of mouth and the trailer. I have seen people do endless social-media campaigns and the movie tanks, so I don’t see a correlation. . . . I strongly believe that my job is to persuade you that I am playing somebody else, so exposing too much personally is just something I can’t get on board with.”
When it comes to “combating” selfies, though:
“Social media has changed the landscape so an encounter with you is valued more as a social-media currency than a genuine interaction,” says Blunt, explaining that she has adopted a selfie-combating strategy when approached while with her young children: “Frances McDormand told us—she just makes my teeth ache I love her so much—when someone asks her for a picture, she says, ‘You know what? I’ve actually retired from that. But I would like to shake your hand and meet you.’ ”
Back to why I love the Chicks:
The “retirement” approach made me giggle. Mainly because Blunt is 34, so if the whole, “I don’t want to take a picture with you, because I am an ungrateful seahag” thing doesn’t rub someone the wrong way, then the retiring-from-picture-taking-with-normal-people-at-34 is probably going to do the trick.
So yeah. FYI…if you were wanting to get your picture taken with Emily Blunt, you may want to rethink it…because she’s retiring from selfies or something. Because Frances McDormand did it.
Anywho, celebrities are ridiculous.
