    “I’ve Definitely Not Enjoyed Some Of It”: Emily Blunt Says She “Absolutely” Felt Like Throwing Up While Kissing Some Of Her Co-Stars

    Hollywood is not the most convenient place for women as has been often clarified by many outspoken actresses. Be it instances of sexual assault or gender discrimination, the women in Hollywood face it all. However, the issues don’t necessarily have to be so dire. Sometimes, even doing intimate scenes on camera becomes a problem because of the level of comfort the co-actors share.

    Anne Hathaway recently opened up about some of her “gross” auditions during the 2000s when she had to kiss random strangers to check the chemistry with them. Bringing forth another similar experience, Oppenheimer‘ actress Emily Blunt has opened up about the extreme discomfort of having to kiss some of her co-actors on screen. Here’s what she said.

    Emily Blunt didn’t hold back while opening up about her on-set chemistry with some of her co-stars during a recent interview on ‘The Howard Stern Show’. The 41-year-old British actress revealed how it often becomes an issue to navigate relationships with fellow actors while doing intimate scenes with them on screen.

    Blunt told Stern that she has managed to generate some chemistry with actors she didn’t necessarily enjoy working with. “I’ve had chemistry with people I haven’t liked,” she confessed during the show.

    Though she refused to reveal the names of the co-actors she is talking about, Blunt further reiterated her point, stating, “I have had chemistry with people who… I have not had a good time working with them.”

    Opening up more about how difficult it can get to bring on romantic chemistry on screen with her co-actors, Blunt said, “Sometimes it’s a strange thing. Sometimes you could have a rapport that’s really effortless, but it doesn’t translate onscreen,” she said.

    Blunt also opined that developing a chemistry with someone on screen is a rather strange thing  that is “either there or it’s not.” Describing it as an “ethereal thing that you can’t really bottle up and buy or sell,” Emily said that is easier to establish when there is “a natural rapport with someone.”

    Further speaking about the approach she takes while building chemistry with someone on screen, Blunt revealed that she often searches for something she admires about her co-actor. It could be anything like their laughter or their demeanor.

    It might be that they have a nice laugh or I like how they speak to people. They’re polite. I mean, it might be something random,” she said. “But find something you love about that person or something you love about them as the character and then kind of lean into that.”

    However, she admitted that some on-screen romantic scenes had made her feel nauseous. “Absolutely. Absolutely,” she responded when asked if she had ever felt like throwing up while kissing a co-star. “I wouldn’t say it’s sort of extreme loathing, but I’ve definitely not enjoyed some of it,” she added.

    During the interview, Blunt also took some time to especially praise her ‘The Fall Guy’ co-star Ryan Gosling. “I love his wife, Eva. I love their children, and I feel like I’m very lucky to be friends with a gem of a person like him,” she said of Gosling.
