It mustn’t be easy to see your partner in a steamy scene for the sake of a film but in the world of Hollywood, it’s a common occurrence. At the weekend Emily Blunt spoke to The Mirror in the lead up to her new film Disney’s The Jungle Cruise. When asked about the kiss she shares with co-star Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, she admitted husband John Krasinski is “immune” to her love scenes.
“Honestly, John is so used to me having to make out with other men,” Blunt said. “He’s immune to it at this point. That was part of the deal when we got married!”
The actress continued and admitted that she and Johnson did have great acting chemistry on set.
“It was there right from the start,” says Emily. “There were certain scenes where we could not get a straight take. Even the crew were like, ‘C’mon guys!’ It was such a joy to work with him. He’s wonderful.”
The Jungle Cruise follows Dr. Lily Houghton (Blunt) who enlists the aid of Frank Wolff (Johnson) to take her down the Amazon in his boat. Together, they search for an ancient tree that holds the power to change the future of medicine forever. And it seems an unexpected love interest is sparked. The film will release into cinemas from July 29 and on Disney+ on July 30.
Blunt and Krasinski have been married since 2010. The loved up couple share two daughters Hazel, seven, and Violet, five. In May the actress had the best response after one of her daughters asked if Blunt was famous.
“And I’d never heard her… We’ve never said that word in our house. We don’t talk about it,” Blunt said. “Someone at school had clearly said it. I was like, ‘Um…not really, I don’t think I am.’”
She continued, explaining she doesn’t want her children to know too much about her and Krasinski’s fame as she doesn’t want them to, “feel any more important or special or [feel like] there’s a glare on them any more than other kids.”
Couple goals right there.
