Emily Blunt Did Her Most ‘Stressful’ Stunt in Mary Poppins Returns

May 5, 20242 Mins Read

Emily Blunt is revealing what movie she did her most “stressful” stunt in, and her answer may surprise some fans.

The Oscar-nominated actress may have been surrounded by death-defying stunts in her latest movie, The Fall Guy, but she recently told People magazine that her scariest stunt was actually in 2018’s Mary Poppins Returns.

“That entrance was very stressful for me,” she recalled of the scene.

Blunt, who took over the memorable Julie Andrews role for Disney’s musical sequel, explained that her character’s entrance “had to start in the clouds and come all the way down toward the ground while holding an umbrella aloft. And I’m supposed to walk effortlessly into my close-up as if it’s nothing.”

The Oppenheimer star added, “I did three takes — and then I felt my tolerance go, ‘Pfft!’ And that was it. I was done.”

However, Blunt said she noticed that director Rob Marshall wanted to go for a fourth take but she immediately shut it down.

“I did three takes and I could see Rob gearing up to do another one,” the actress remembered. “I was like, ‘Nope, no, no, no, I’m done.’ It was over.”

While Blunt also does a fight scene in The Fall Guy, where she stars opposite Ryan Gosling, some fans may have guessed her scariest stunts would have been sci-fi action movie Edge of Tomorrow with Tom Cruise, but that wasn’t the case.

“I did some wire stuff in Edge of Tomorrow, which was probably more dangerous, because I took some spills,” she said. Her performance in the 2014 film also earned her a Critics Choice Award for best actress in an action movie.
