Emily Blunt Doesn’t Want Her Daughters to Know Their Mom and Dad Are Famous
Emily Blunt is one of the most prominent actresses in the film industry. Ever since her debut in 2004, she has worked in over 35 movies to date. She has been married to fellow actor John Krasinski since 2010, and they share two daughters — Hazel and Violet.
In a May 23, 2021, interview with The Sunday Times, Blunt confessed she didn’t want her daughters to know that she and Krasinski are among the most dominant duos in Hollywood.
Blunt On Her Daughters And Fame
The 38-year-old's daughters are pretty young. Hazel was born in 2014 and is seven years old, and Violet was born in 2016, making her four.
The A Quiet Place stars do not want their daughters to be affected by their fame. Hence, they try their best to preserve their star status.
Blunt explained why she kept her status a secret from her kids — she doesn’t want them to feel more important or unique than other children. The actress doesn’t want the limelight to fall on them for their parents’ works.
The Devil Wears Prada star wants her daughter to “remain oblivious” for as long as possible. However, it is a lot easier said than done for the duo.
Blunt revealed that her daughters didn’t want to see what she does. They simply want to know the actress as their mother and nothing else. She also pointed out that they didn’t even like it when Blunt put on make-up.
Recently, the mother of two had a scare when her oldest daughter, Hazel, asked if she was famous. She took her mother by surprise since the word ‘famous’ had never been uttered in the Blunt-Krasinski household.
Blunt simply replied, “I don’t think I am.” She knew someone at her daughter’s school had mentioned it, so she asked the same.
The six-year-old just said “Yeah” and, to the actress’ relief, divulged little into it.
Not knowing about the couple’s stardom is one thing, but Blunt also doesn’t want her daughters to follow in their footsteps. When asked if she would like to see her children act, she was horrified.
She really doesn’t want her daughters to act and prayed to God to keep them off stage.
