Emily Blunt wants something pretty much no other woman wants — to get fat.
… for a movie.
"I'd love to get fat. I'd eat everything in sight! Matt Damon said for 'The Informant' he was in heaven every day eating fried chicken and burgers and carbonara. That idea sounds very nice to me. It would be worth having to lose it afterwards for four months of eating like that."
Emily says that she’s very much peeved that female actors are held to impossible weight standards while men are not:
"I think actresses still think they have to be super-thin. There are actors who can turn up on the set 30lbs overweight and no one bats an eyelid. If a girl did that they'd tell you to get in the gym, so I don't think it's changed that much. Actors can get away with a lot more because they can cover it up more."
While we totally agree with Emily on the double-standard with men and women’s weight, we DON’T recommend gaining a ton of weight for a movie unless it’s absolutely necessary. Even if you lose the weight afterwards, it’s still hard on your body to put on weight!
