Emily Blunt has become a household name since her breakthrough in “The Devil Wears Prada,” but her film career started with “My Summer of Love” about lesbian and deception. She keeps a relatively low profile in the media,even though she can name some big name celebrities (Michael Bublé anyone?!) that she’s been romantically involved with.

Blunt began her career in theater and film in 2000 when she was still an A-level student in “Bliss” a musical written by Paul Sellar. She began her screen career with a role in the British television drama Boudica. She also played queen Catherine Howard in a two part television drama Henry VIII. In 2004 her film career began, but it wasn’t till 2006′s “The Devil Wears Prada” that she gained international fame. The role demanded that Blunt had to lose weight. Co-star Anne Hathaway said, “I basically stuck with fruit, vegetables and fish (to slim down for the movie). I wouldn’t recommend that. Emily Blunt and I would clutch at each other and cry because we were so hungry.”

Her co-star in “The Devil Wears PradaMeryl Streep described her as “the best young actress I’ve worked with in some time, perhaps ever.” One of the directors she’s worked with has said that Blunt seems designed to show her range as an actress. “There are only one or two girls every five years like that,” he said. However, Blunt doesn’t let the compliments go to her head.  She says, “‘Oh, that’s very kind of them,’ Blunt says, blushing. ‘Really, I try to take on many different roles. It’s interesting to do that but, at the end of filming, you have to say goodbye to the character you have become. I get so involved with my characters – some I like and some can get very tiresome, but it’s an interesting world, acting, because when you are on set everything is so intense.”

The role paid off for Blunt though. Blunt recently starred in “Sunshine Cleaning” opposite Amy Adams and “The Young Victoria.” Also coming up she has “The Great Buck Howard.” She’s currently engaged John Krasinski, one of the stars of the American television series “The Office.”
