Emily Blunt is no Jessica Alba

March 8, 2009

Uh, first question Ms. Blunt– How’d you get your name?

Someone needs to bring British actress Emily Blunt into the loop: Albuquerque is the most wonderful place in the world, if you’re doing an interview for your new film.

Poor Blunt dangerously toes well established Jessica Alba territory in an interview with NY Daily News:

That trailer park was a real location in Albuquerque. How did you like filming on location?

It takes some getting used to. We actually were given great accommodations to live in, but we also got a real sense of Albuquerque. It is a bit of a shock on the system – it’s rather a bleak place, and everything was beige. I ate a lot of Mexican food, though, so I was happy.

So, the food was good. Better than Applebee’s?  And, when in New Mexico try the Mexican. Got it.

Bleak, huh? Shock on the the system.  Hmm. Let’s try, “a broadening experience.”

Being fair, Ms. Blunt isn’t saying anything an out-of-towner hasn’t said before. Fine. Her quote is a 1.7 on the Richter Scale. But really, did she have to say beige? Why not “earthy heather?”

    Beige is earthtone. This city is the antenna to mother earth in its truest fashion. No synthetic culture here, just the “bleaklish” beautiful turquoise truth.

    They don’t film here for nothing.
