British actress Emily Blunt rose to prominence after her role in ‘The Devil Wear Prada’ alongside Meryl Streep. In 2020 Forbes ranked her as one of the highest-paid actresses as well. As the success of ‘Oppenheimer’ made the headlines, Blunt’s series of upcoming projects stirred up excitement among the cinephiles.
