Emily Blunt Talks Obama Crush, Fashion with Time Style & Design

Posted Sunday March 18, 2012 12:05 PM GMT

She has numerous movies set for release this year including "The Five Year Engagement" next month, but Emily Blunt was able to make time in her jam-packed schedule to put together the cover story featured in the Spring 2012 issue of Time Style & Design.

With the publication back from a three-year hiatus, the 29-year-old English actress donned a black Balenciaga hat for the Peter Hapak shot front page while sporting an array of designer ensembles from top names in fashion such as Stella McCartney, Yves Saint Laurent, Prada and Chanel for the inside spread.

Highlights from Miss Blunt's interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to Time Style & Design!

On meeting her 'crush,' President Barack Obama, at the Kennedy Center Honors:
"I just laughed hysterically in his face. That's all I could do. I got ushered away gently by someone, removed from his presence. John [Kraskinski] said he'd never seen me fall to pieces in the way that I did."

On her 'sex kitten' scene in "Charlie Wilson's War":
"I was embarrassed. There was something about it being in front of Tom Hanks. There was a grownup watching."

On why she took on her role in "The Five-Year Engagement":
"It was something I don't think has been done before, where the girl is not playing the pill of a girlfriend. She's got as many hilarious set pieces as the bloke."

On her fashion preferences:
"In general, I like more edge rather than something too girly and straight. I don't like flouncy, and I don't like boring. I'd prefer to go for something a little sleeker and more defined. I'm not necessarily someone who goes to fashion shows. But something weird happens to you when you put on clothes like these [for the Time shoot]. It's very visceral."
