Emily Blunt is known for her amazing work on the big screen, and titles like ‘A Quiet Place’, ‘Oppenheimer’ and most recently the Netflix film ‘The Business of Pain’ are examples of the British actress’s impressive acting talent. .40 years. But his name has been in the news recently, not because of his work in cinema specifically, but because of an unfortunate comment he made during an interview in 2012.

The famous Hollywood star was a guest on the Jonathan Ross show in the United Kingdom to talk about the movie “Future Killer”, which he was promoting at the time. Blunt began to tell the story that while filming this film, which was shot in the United States, she once visited a Chili’s restaurant to grab something, and when a waitress served her, she recognized her immediately. At one point the announcer said that at places like Chili’s “our American friends are huge,” which prompted laughter from the audience.

As has happened with other celebrities, in the case of John Krasinski’s wife, her words resurfaced on social networks, where an excerpt of the interview spread widely. Many users claimed that these words were hurtful towards someone who was simply excited to see a movie star. They also claimed that his comment appeared anti-fat.

However, it was Blunt herself who spoke out about the matter and apologized for making that kind of comment.

The Devil Wears Fashion star also commented that there is no excuse for speaking like this. “I’ve always considered myself someone who doesn’t think about upsetting anyone, so anything that led me to say something like that in that moment was unrecognizable to me or anything I stand for. However it happened, I said it and I’m very sorry for the pain it caused.” “I was old enough to know better,” he added.
