Emily Blunt Covers 'Elle UK' May 2012

Emily Blunt strikes a pose in Fendi on the cover of Elle UK‘s May issue, on sale Wednesday (April 4).

Here’s what the 29-year-old British actress had to share:

On meeting the Obamas: “I was so starstruck … we were at the White House having cocktails and this woman said, ‘Would you like to meet President Obama?’ They introduced me and then he turned to me and went, ‘Oh. Oh. You are a wonderful actress.’ And I laughed, screechingly and hysterically, I couldn’t stop. They had to usher me away. I fell apart. I don’t know what happened to me. He looked 9-feet tall. I think my eyes rolled back in my head. I gave Michelle a hug and she had skin like silk.”

On having a stutter as a child: “It was hard. I’d want to ask to go to the toilet but couldn’t get the words out.”

On her style: “I like to mix it up, but I don’t care what people say about what I’m wearing on the red carpet, because there’s inevitably going to be someone who hates it, even if you wear something that a lot of people like. I don’t care. I know what I like and what I feel good in and I like to take a few risks. They’re not huge strides.”

You can check out Emily in a behind-the-scenes video on!
