Emily Blunt says husband John Krasinski was a 'die hard' Devil Wears Prada fan before they met

The Girl on the Train star Emily Blunt revealed on The Jonathan Ross Show that her husband John Krasinski was a fan of her work before they even met – well, one film in particular. The actress says her love had seen her film The Devil Wears Prada "about 72 times."

Joking about John's obsession with the comedy drama, Emily explained: "He had rather embarrassingly seen The Devil Wears Prada about 72 times… I remember when we first started dating, I was coming home from something and I walked through the door and he quickly changed the channel because he was watching it again.

"He knew Anne Hathaway's favourite outfit and the montage of outfits. [He is a] die hard [fan]."

The actress is currently preparing for another iconic role – playing Mary Poppins in the forthcoming sequel Mary Poppins Returns – and said she was thrilled to have got Julie Andrews' blessing before filming begins.

"[Julie Andrews] is so iconic and the character is so iconic and emblematic of people's nostalgia in many ways and so I'm frozen with fear and my heart is completely racing with excitement for it," Emily admitted.

"I just heard that she's given her okay. Could you imagine if she was like 'Oh God not Emily Blunt!'"

It follows a big year for the British actress, who welcomed her second daughter Violet in June. Emily was pregnant while filming thriller The Girl on the Train, and she had to confide in her co-star Luke Evans before they worked on some of their more violent scenes together.

Joining her on the ITV talk show, Luke explained: "Emily told me just before I had to throw her around her kitchen! It was going to be a stressful and intense day anyway so we gave each other a little hug before we did the first take and as she leant in she whispered, 'I'm four and a half months pregnant.' No one really knew at that point and so we kept it quiet and managed to get through that day."
