Blunt Smuggled Doughnuts Onto Devil Wears Prada Set
Emily Blunt smuggled doughnuts onto the set of The Devil Wears Prada.
The British actress – who starred alongside Anne Hathaway and Meryl Streep in the 2006 film – admits the strict diet she was forced by producers to adhere to left her craving comfort food.
“I understand why I was asked to be like that for that role. My character was surviving on cubes of cheese at one point in the movie,” Blunt – who portrayed a stick-thin fashion assistant in the flick – tells Britain’s Harper’s Bazaar magazine. “But you need some kind of comfort when you’re on a film set all day, and mine’s usually food.
“I was being watched like a hawk, but by the end I’d be sneaking in doughnuts just to annoy the producers.”
