While award season is an exciting time in Hollywood, this year's annual pre-Oscar event, unite4:humanity, was more somber for some, including Amy Poehler.
Just hours after learning of "Parks and Recreation" executive producer Harris Wittels' untimely death, the actress attended the event, which is meant to celebrate the entertainment industry's commitment to philanthropy. She was being honored for her work with "Worldwide Orphans," but was having a hard time smiling for the cameras.
Showing some love to their English fans, Emily Blunt, James Corden and Meryl Streep showed up at the Curzon Mayfair in London for a special screening of “Into the Woods” on Wednesday (January 7).
Following a successful launch in the States, the film now begins making its international rounds and co-producer Marc Platt told press there are big things ahead. "It's been a great journey and from a business perspective we're delighted that it is reaching a very, very broad audience.”
Showing some love to their English fans, the stars of “Into the Woods” attended a photocall at the Corinthia Hotel in London on Wednesday (January 7). “The Devil Wears Prada” actress Meryl Streep was lovely as she posed alongside James Corden and Emily Blunt while fans and shutterbugs snapped up pictures.
Ms. Blunt told press that although she has worked with Meryl in the past, it was still exhilarating to star with her in the new flick.
They spent the holidays in Mexico with Jennifer Aniston, Justin Theroux, Jimmy Kimmel and Howard Stern, and on Thursday (January 1) Emily Blunt and John Krasinski wrapped up their vacation and flew back to Los Angeles. The “Adjustment Bureau” babe and her “Office” hunk showed up at LAX International Airport and looked to be in good spirits following their relaxing trip.
Meanwhile, Emily recently told press that while she hasn’t been offered the part of Captain Marvel in the forthcoming flick, she has turned down two big Marvel roles in the past.
She’s happily married to “The Office” hunk John Krasinski, but Emily Blunt still has plenty of love for her LGBT fan base. In a new interview with “The Advocate,” the “Adjustment Bureau” actress discussed her desire to be known as a friend to the gay community.
Blunt explained, “I know that’s my demographic. That’s been made clear to me by my fans. I love it. I think it’s so cool, because one day I hope to be a gay icon.”
