EXCLUSIVE: Emily Blunt Talks ‘Looper’

Emily Blunt talks about playing the mysterious Sara in Rian Johnson's Looper, arriving in theaters September 28

Emily Blunt is an actress whose career I've admired for some time, mainly because she's always striving to do something new. After breaking out with the 2006 hit The Devil Wears Prada, she has taken roles in essentially every genre imaginable. She has played a queen (The Young Victoria), an "angel" (Charlie Wilson's War), a gnome (Gnomeo and Juliet), and even a bossy pig's secretary (The Muppets), just to name a few of her memorable roles. The versatile actress steps into the sci-fi genre as Sara in writer-director Rian Johnson's Looper, arriving in theaters nationwide September 28.
