Emily Blunt Explains Why Julie Andrews Is Not in 'Mary Poppins Returns'

Emily Blunt poses for a photo with Lin-Manuel Miranda at a SiriusXM Town Hall event on Monday afternoon (December 3) in New York City.

The actors were joined by their Mary Poppins Returns co-stars Emily Mortimer and Ben Whishaw for the conversation.

In a recent interview, Emily opened up about why original Mary Poppins star Julie Andrews does not appear in the new film.

“She was very hands-off with the whole thing,” Emily told Variety.

“There was discussion about, you know, that maybe she would come and do a bit in the movie and she was so generous actually,” she added. “She said to Rob [Marshall], ‘Do you know what this is? This is Emily’s version of her and I don’t want it to be that she’s playing Mary Poppins the whole way through but then I come in and there’s like oh, but there’s the real Mary Poppins, you know?’”

FYI: Emily is wearing a Carolina Herrera dress and a Josie Natori tank.

At the press conference, Emily admitted that she “loves” that her husband John Krasinski revealed to Ellen DeGeneres on her show that he uncontrollably cried during his first screening of the film.

“[He's an emotional guy] but in a sort of cool way,” Emily expressed (via ET). “I love that, when guys cry. I think it’s a beautiful thing, [when they're] not so tough, yeah! Ben Whishaw’s first song is so gorgeous when he’s talking about the loss of his wife. I think he sort of cried from then on wards, you know. He’s still crying now. He kept saying, ‘What’s happening to me?’ when he was watching it.”

FYI: Emily is wearing Miu Miu.
