Emily Blunt talks about Lucy, Promised Land
  • From an interview with Emily Blunt by Donna Freydkin at USA Today (photo is from the Critics Choice Awards in 2010):

    Even though Blunt and Krasinski pal around with George Clooney and Matt Damon and his wife, Lucy (Blunt has something of a girl crush on Mrs. Damon: "I'm kind of obsessed with Lucy. She knows it. Everyone is obsessed with Lucy. She's the coolest chick in the world, literally"), Blunt says her life is about far more than her career.

  • Promised Land is now confirmed to start filming in Pittsburgh in late April. Initial details, including a crew call, are at the Post-Gazette.

    Lucy is, without doubt, the coolest chick in the world. Everyone who know her, will agree with Ms. Blunt's comment.

    Re: Lucy.

    Could it be the talented Mr. Damon is reading this thread? Cute comment above. Don't know Lucy but she just always seem to look beautiful, composed and happy.

    Re: Lucy.

    It seems to me they are BOTH lucky. :)

    Re: Lucy.

    Lucy is a classy lady

    Emily on Lucy

    I think Emily is being disingenuous. I think she's more interested in Mr Damon rather than his wife.

    I LOVE Emily. She does always seem like she's trying to trade up though.
    Matt seems loyal and faithful though and I wouldn't say that in reference to 99% of men. He seems rare like that.

    Re: Emily on Lucy

    But can also be the two things: that Emily finds Matt attractive (who doesn't?), while she likes Lucy too.
    Lucy seems to be a lovely woman. So, that part of the comment, may actually be sincere.

    I think that Emily is a beautiful and smart woman and a good actress too, but from "The Bluntsinskis", I rather prefer John than her. I think he's adorable and seems to be good friends with Matt.

    The Sky Movies Face to Face long interview with Matt and Cameron is now up:

    Rosemarie DeWitt joins Promised Land:

    A very early interview after the Oscar group photo (very cute):

    Re: Various

    Interesting that in Emily's interview it mentions Rosemarie DeWitt as being a co-star of hers...maybe Emily recommended her to Matt for "Promised Land"?

    I like John and Emily, they both seem lovely.

    Re: Various

    Rosemarie is also in a recent movie with John Krasinski (Nobody Walks), and she was a co-star of Ben's in Company Men.

    Re: Various

    Matt is (briefly!) in the trailer for "All In - The Poker Movie" at JustJared:



    PS: Did anyone see that "Paparazzo" movie that Matt was in?

    Re: Various

    I didn't re-post the trailer because they've just re-cut it and Matt's part hasn't changed.

    In Adrian Grenier's movie, Matt was interviewed, possibly on the set of Entourage, and quoted a few times in the movie. Interesting film.

    I think Matt was at 'Sleep no more' in NY again last night.

    Once again you were spot on about Matt seeing sleep no more. Someone tweeted about seeing him there.

    A BBC news report on Zoo ahead of the UK opening this Friday (with remarkably little press, and no feature interviews yet with Matt).

    Re: Zoo

    There was a half page article in the Times on Sunday about Benjamin Mee and the zoo. No new info, but did state that things are still tough and how he will be able to to make the March payroll. The zoo's getting about 100,000 visitors a year though.

    Final word on Emily Blunt's comment about Lucy? As I don't know her I have to take her words at face value and she sounds sincere. I like her a lot as an actor, does really good work. She comes across as genuine fun and charming.

    In general I cannot understand why people get so worked up about someone they've never met and know nothing about, genuinely baffles me! Marcia

    Eastwood movie

    There was a Facebook post by an Athens Georgia radio station that Matt was part of a new film starring Clint Eastwood and Amy Adams currently filming in Athens called 'Trouble with the curve'.

    It's false - Matt is not in the film (or it has not been announced or previously rumored).

    Radio Times Interview

    A nice interview with Matt in the magazine on sale yesterday (weekly TV guide published by the BBC, I'm a subscriber). Double page spread and a really lovely photo. Keep forgetting his eyes are so blue :)

    Matt talked about wanting to take his daughters to the Occupy Wall Street camp, but felt his presence would trivialise it, his mother took his girls instead and he also mentioned that she volunteers once a week at the Boston camp.

    A spirited defence of actors salaries, stating that no one gets $20m dollar deals anymore since the collapse of the DVD market. The majority get a salary and are only paid a bonus after everyone else gets their money back.

    He also mentioned that filming the Bourne Ultimatum was so stressful it took years of his life! He has mixed feelings of the reboot. The Elysium production offices were located in the same building as the Bourne movie during filming in Canada.

    You may already have mentioned the above previously but I have memory like a sieve and don't recall seeing this before.

    At work at the moment, if you would like direct quotes let me know. Marcia

    Re: Radio Times Interview

    Thanks very much Marcia, I hadn't heard of this interview, and the quotes are definitely new.

    Here's a photo of the article via ebay:

    And with great timing, here's a summary of the Bourne-related part of the article:

    Re: Radio Times Interview

    Sounds like a good interview. I would love to hear more quotes.

    Matt was sighted in ga, la, & ny yesterday. He really gets around. Lol. I think I believe the ny sighting as it's the more reasonable one.
    mattdamoncolumn From: mattdamoncolumn Date: March 15th, 2012 12:48 am (UTC) (Link)

    Re: Radio Times Interview

    He's definitely not in Georgia (or LA) with more sightings in NY today.

    Re: Radio Times Interview

    Sounds like an interesting interview. I had been a bit suprised that Matt never showed up at Occupy Wall Street, but I understand his reasons for staying away.

    Promised Land

    The crew sign-ups are steadily increasing on the IMDB site for Promised Land. The cinematographer is an unusual choice - a young Swedish guy with little feature experience.

    Re: Promised Land

    No Rodrigo Prieto?

    Changing subject; do you know when this picture was taken? I found it in Pinterest (don't know if you have already posted it). It's from one of the Nigel Parry's portfolios. I JUST LOVE IT.

    Re: Promised Land

    I think the photo was for a magazine profile.

    No Prieto as Matt's not directing, I presume.
