‘Sunshine Cleaning’ Star Emily Blunt Tries To Resist Gag Reflex

Both Amy Adams of Enchanted fame and Emily Blunt from The Devil Wears Prada hardly look like they would be comfortable cleaning up blood and guts. But that’s exactly what their characters are charged with doing in their new comedy Sunshine Cleaning.

At a screening of the indie film at The Grove Pacific Theaters, Blunt said that the crime scenes she and Amy pretended to clean up for the movie were fake, but her reaction to the gore was very real.

“Particularly the trailer park one–that was gag-making. We walked on set and I felt myself heave, as it really did smell,” Blunt confessed. I hope no one explains to her that every red carpet is dyed using the blood of all the starlet hopefuls who never make it onto the big screen. Little known piece of Hollywood nostalgia.
