Emily Blunt gave fans a tiny bit of hope last week when she admitted that she’d be “down” for a Devil Wears Prada sequel. The 35-year-old has another admission to make about the film, however, and it’s one that won’t be nearly as popular: She’s actually hoping it doesn’t happen. Before you start jeering her with boos, hear her out: There’s pretty solid reasoning behind her stance.
The Mary Poppins Returns star, who recently met up with her former co-stars Meryl Street and Stanley Tucci on the red carpet, opened up about her experience filming the first flick to People. “We all just wept with laughter. I loved working with sweet Anne Hathaway and it was my first experience working with Meryl [Streep] and Stanley Tucci, who is now my brother-in-law.” (Tucci is married to Emily’s sister, Felicity.)
While one might assume she’d be chomping at the bit for the chance to relive those moments (and success — the film grossed more than 326 million worldwide) for round two, she says she thinks this might be one better left to memory.
“If everyone did it, I would be up for it. I almost hope it doesn’t [happen] because I think sometimes when you sequel everything kind of dilutes how special the original is.”
We’ve gotta’ admit… girl’s got a point.
