Emily Blunt Opens Up About Se-S-Secret Stutter Past

| Filed under: Emily Blunt


Can you believe at one point, The Devil Wears Prada star actually stopped talking!?

Emily Blunt revealed to The Daily Beast that at age 10 she began suffering from a debilitating stutter that by the age of 12 had forced her to stop talking!

In high school, a teacher offered her a spot in the school play which she initially refused but later accepted and required her to use a Northern British accent.

Blunt credits the role as being "somehow liberating. I wouldn’t say that I ceased to stutter after that, that it was some huge revelation. But for the first time in five years I was able to speak fluently—and in front of 200 people."

This week, the actress was an emcee for the Freeing Voices Changing Lives gala to benefit the American Institute for stuttering.

Good for you, bb!! Way to support such a great cause!!

    Good grief, Perez, are you 12? Have to take a pun pot-shot at stuttering? Real classy.

    So, Perez slanders people with stuttering problems but then turns and demands an apology from someone that slanders homosexuals. That my friends is the definition of a hypocrite!

    Northern British… really?! I'm assuming this means northern English accent. North Britain being Scotland. Good on Emily Blunt though.

    her voice carries so much emotion and nuance, it's her distinguishing feature, another case of weakness becoming a strength

    You are a complete idiot. Your headline is so terribly insensitive it sickens me. I'm embarrassed that you are a gay man and I hope everyone knows that you don't represent the gay community at all.
    Also, Xtinas album got a rave review in USA today. And the Alejandro video is SUCH a rip off of Madonnas Like a Prayer but you don't mention that. How SHOCKING to mock the catholic church.
