Emily Blunt became a mom back in February, but it seems the gorgeous actress has already gotten her pre-baby figure back. Blunt, who’s promoting her latest film Into the Woods, stopped by The Late Show with David Letterman on Tuesday, November 25. The 31-year-old actress wore a classy knee-length white dress with black accents as she strutted her stuff in New York City. The simple yet elegeant look was made even simpler by the lack of accessories, save for the wedding bands given to her by husband John Krasinski.
In an interview with E! News, Blunt revealed that she will be passing on her family’s tradition of reading before bed to her daughter Hazel. “She’s nine months old but she understands. She sits on me, this little thing, and she understands turning a page already and going on a journey,” Blunt said. The star added, “I just want her to have that satisfaction I had as a kid of finishing a book and the chunk of it and the weight of it and putting the book down and it’s done. You want things to be sensory for kids.”
Blunt also spilled the beans on how much her husband loved Into the Woods. “He cried. He absolutely loved it,” she said about Krasinski’s reaction. “I think he was so moved by it by what it’s saying to this generation and that idea of nobody being alone at the end. It’s such an amazing theme running through this film. Yes it’s a musical but it’s not just a spectacle. It says some really profound things like be careful what you say to children. Children will listen.”
On Sunday, November 23, Blunt joined her Into the Woods co-stars Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine, Meryl Streep, Christine Baranski, and James Corden for an event promoting film. Into the Woods is based on the musical of the same name which melds various fairytales including Cinderella and Rapunzel into one overarching story.
