Emily Blunt is a bonafide movie star—there’s no denying that. Her breakout role as snobby magazine assistant Emily (yes, really) in The Devil Wears Prada cemented her status as one of Hollywood’s up-and-coming stars. In the 15 years since the movie’s release, she’s starred in a number of blockbuster films and is one half of a power couple (thanks to husband John Krasinski). She’s obviously famous, but there are two people in the world who are still clueless about that fact: her daughters, Hazel, and Violet.
“Hazel came home the other day and we were in the kitchen and she goes, ‘Are you famous?'” Blunt tells the Sunday Times in a new interview. “And I’d never heard her… we’ve never said that word in our house. We don’t talk about it.”
The Quiet Place actor continues, “Someone at school had clearly said it. I was like, ‘Um…not really, I don’t think I am. Did someone say that to you, Haze?’ She said, ‘Yeah,’ but then she wouldn’t divulge much more, you know, but it’s weird. It’s weird.”
Emily Blunt and John Krasinski tied the knot in 2010. Despite her and her husband’s massive success in the entertainment industry, she wants her daughters to only see them as “mom and dad.”
She adds, “I don’t want my kids to feel any more important or special or that there’s a glare on them any more than other kids. If they can remain oblivious for the longest time, I’d be thrilled. They don’t even want to see what I do. They don’t even like it when I put on makeup. They don’t like any of it! They just want me to be their mummy.”
When it comes to the girls acting alongside their parents, Blunt says, “God no—no! Please God keep them off the stage.”
