Emily Blunt: Why I Passed on 'Iron Man' & 'Captain America'

Emily Blunt and Ewan McGregor premiere their new movie, Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, on Monday (March 5) at the Directors Guild of America in Los Angeles.

The 29-year-old actress recently opened up about why she passed on parts in two blockbuster films, Iron Man 2 and Captain America.

“Usually the female parts in a superhero film feel thankless: She’s the pill girlfriend while the guys are whizzing around saving the world. I didn’t do the other ones because the part wasn’t very good or the timing wasn’t right, but I’m open to any kind of genre if the part is great and fun and different and a challenge in some way,” Emily told NYMag‘s Vulture.

“I would love to do a comic-book movie or a science-fiction film that would scare the bejesus out of me. Maybe I need to be James Bond!” she added.

FYI: Emily paired her Naeem Khan dress with Gianvito Rossi shoes and Chopard jewelry. Ewan suited up in Dolce&Gabbana.
