Emily Blunt Flies Away as Mary Poppins on 'Vogue' Cover!

Emily Blunt dresses up as Mary Poppins and flies away with help from her magical umbrella for the cover of Vogue‘s December 2018 issue, on newsstands nationwide November 23.

Here is what Emily and Mary Poppins Returns co-star Lin-Manuel Miranda had to share with the mag:

Blunt on Mary Poppins: “She’s a superhero…You could say she’s some sort of angel. She recognizes what people need, and she gives it to them, yet they discover something about themselves in the process. … I don’t think she concerns herself with what she is. There’s nobody else like her—which she quite likes.”

Miranda on filming in the wake of the 2016 presidential and Brexit: “I couldn’t believe that, given all that was going on, this is what we got to put into the world…It’s so clichéd, but we got to make this enormous present, this beautiful, uplifting, joyous family movie that makes you cry, that made even my stone-hearted-scientist wife cry when she saw an early rough cut of it. I feel really grateful that that’s what we spent our year doing.”

FYI: Emily is wearing a Dior skirt, jacket and hat on the cover.

Lin-Manuel Miranda Reveals Funny 'Hamilton' UK Audience Response on 'Late Show'!

Lin-Manuel Miranda hit Stephen Colbert‘s couch on The Late Show last night (October 16) and dished about bringing his hit musical Hamilton to London!

The 38-year-old entertainer revealed the particular parts of his hit Broadway show that get laughs in London where they don’t in the United States.

“They are super hung-up about sex, they giggle at sex stuff,” Lin expressed.

Lin said a line in the song “Wait For It” about “keeping the bed warm while her husband is away” had “never gotten a reaction in the U.S. before” – but “when they sing that in London, people are like, ‘Wooo. It’s super Eric Idle, wink, wink, nudge, nudge,’” he added. “It’s really funny.”

Lin also read an excerpt from his book “Gmorning, Gnight!” that helps him cope with the loss of Anthony Bourdain – Watch the interview below!
