Emily Blunt has revealed that she always does a shot of tequila before any awards ceremony, a ritual that will likely be repeated at tonight's BAFTA awards! The Devil Wears Prada actress opened up about how she used to find red carpets "strange". Chatting to The Daily Telegraph, she said: "I found it hard to wrap my head around the exposure. When you actually really think about it, it's a sort of strange thing to do, to walk down a red carpet with a ridiculously over-the-top-gown. So I do tend to look at it as a sort of spectacle, and embrace it as that. I have fun. I get ready, enjoy the dressing-up part." She then added: "And I do a shot of tequila and get in the car."
Emily revealed she always has a shot of tequila before a red carpet
The star has been nominated in the leading actress category at Sunday night's awards for her work in The Girl on the Train, and revealed that she was "quite blown away" by the nomination. Chatting about her role in the thriller as struggling divorcee Rachel who becomes involved in a murder investigation, she said: "The feedback I've had from most women is, 'Oh, thank goodness, we're being represented as women who are flawed and imperfect'."
Emily shares two daughters with her husband, John Krasinski
The busy star is also mum to two young daughters, two-year-old Hazel and seven-month-old Violet, and has previously opened up about balancing her career with her home life. "To be honest I don't want to say that my job as a working mother is any harder than anyone else's who has to go to work and has two children," she told HELLO! Online and other media outlets at a London press conference. "I think it's just a juggle! You just sort of do it and take each day as it comes. Everyone had warned me that one kid is great but two's a zoo and it is a zoo in my house right now! I think it's probably the same for everybody. I think it's a day-by-day play for us."
