Emily Blunt Reveals Who Told Her Not to Become a Pop Star

So you’re telling us Emily Blunt could have become a pop star?

Almost Becoming New Britney Spears?

In a recent episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, Emily Blunt talked about how she almost didn’t become an actor.

She told the host Jimmy Kimmel that she wanted to be a pop star instead.

“I could have been Britney [Spears],” she joked. Her dreams were short-lived because of one small detail. “I realized I wasn’t good at dancing and I didn’t want to be Britney…I don’t know.”

Ultimately, she found out that being a musician wasn’t her destiny. However, the Edge of Tomorrow star confessed that she had recorded some songs and even tried dance lessons before that.

“I don’t want to tell you too much because I feel like someone is going to find these songs,” she said.

“Do you want to know the name of one of them? ‘Ring It Up.’ It will never see the light of day.” Now, that sounds interesting.

Always Listen to Your Elders

While the Devil Wears Prada star was still pursuing acting, she got an advice from one of her A-list co-stars. This is what helped her make the right decision in the end.

“I was doing a play…my first job was with Judi Dench—yeah, the Dame,” Blunt started recalling. According to her, she “was incredible and she was wonderful to me. She was nervous about the career that she now knows doesn’t suit her. That’s why she went to the Dame for advice.

“I didn’t think was right for me—and she was like, ‘Oh no, darling. You can’t do both. You can’t act and do that.’ She talked me out of it.”

Blunt also discussed her upcoming movie, which is a sequel to a major box office hit Quiet Place. After its release in 2018, the movie grossed over $340 million worldwide. A Quiet Place 2 hits theaters on March 20th.
