Emily Blunt says she felt like crap filming The Girl on the Train, but for good reason. The actress was a few months pregnant when production started and told HipHollywood that she was so exhausted it was almost like she had narcolepsy.
“I became the queen of power naps,” laughed Blunt, who had her second child with hubby John Krasinski this summer. “They’d be like, ‘Emily you have 10 minutes,’ and I’d be like, ‘OK, I’m going to my trailer for, like, 8 minutes,’ and I could go to sleep like that!”
Thankfully, Blunt, who plays Rachel Watson, an alcoholic woman who becomes entangled in a missing persons case, said the state of exhaustion helped her performance. “I was just drained and fragile,” explained Blunt. “I kinda looked like crap anyway … there was no reason to beautify how I was feeling with this role.”
The Girl on the Train, which also stars Haley Bennett, Edgar Ramirez, Justin Theroux and Rebecca Ferguson, hits theaters October 7.
