Emily Blunt Thought Her Daughter Was ‘Going to Faint’ While Meeting Taylor Swift: ‘She’s the Nicest’

Two generations of Blunt women are officially Swifties. In a Tuesday (April 30) interview with Howard Stern, Emily Blunt gushed about her family’s shared love for Taylor Swift, recalling the time the pop star left her oldest daughter breathless with a single compliment.

“She’s the nicest,” the actress told Stern of introducing her children, 10-year-old Hazel and 7-year-old Violet, to the “Anti-Hero” singer. “She was so nice to my kids.”

“My oldest kid had just cut all of her hair off, this very short haircut that she was very self-conscious about,” continued Blunt, who shares the girls with husband John Krasinski. “And Taylor Swift, goes, ‘God, look at you, you’re just this ’60s Beatnik cool kid. I love your style.’”

“I thought my child was going to faint,” added the Oppenheimer star. “It was the best thing anyone’s done for my child. She’s very cool.”

The interview comes a couple weeks after Blunt revealed her favorite Swift song alongside her Fall Guy costar, Ryan Gosling. “I’d say ‘Cruel Summer’ is pretty up there for me,” she told Fandango at the time, confirming that she 100% identifies as a Swiftie, while the Canadian actor answered, “‘All Too Well’ right now has a real soft spot in my heart.”

A few days later, Blunt and Gosling did a spoof cover of the Red ballad on Saturday Night Live, dedicated to the latter’s Barbie character, Ken. Swift praised the performance on social media shortly afterward, writing on Instagram, “All Too Well (Ryan and Emily’s Version)!!! Watch me accidentally catch myself singing this version on tour. This monologue is everything.”
