  • - I'm actually time traveling.

  • - Are you really?

  • - [Anne] I'm actually like time traveling.

  • - I know! - And I'm on the set with you,

  • and the take's just about to go

  • and you've just said something really, really funny.

  • - Yeah!

  • - I'm just sitting on top of like this bubble of giggle.

  • - Or we'd make like fart noises.

  • They'd be like, "Rolling, rolling," and I'd be like:

  • (imitating passing wind)

  • (Anne laughing cheerfully)

  • (upbeat jazz music)

  • (upbeat jazz music continues)

  • All right, yeah, we're back!

  • - We're back.

  • - We're back! - Hi, honey!

  • Hello. Hello.

  • So... - Yes?

  • - I'm sure everyone is curious. How did we meet?

  • - We met...

  • Did we meet before the table read of "Devil Wears Prada?"

  • Was it at the table read?

  • - This is so embarrassing

  • because I remember every second of the first time I met you

  • and you're like, "Did we?"

  • - No, because I also am very blurry on most memories.

  • - I'm just so much more into you than you are into me.

  • It's fine. (Emily laughs cheerfully)

  • It's fine. - How did we meet?

  • - I remember because I joined the cast just before you.

  • - Yeah.

  • - And I was like, "Oh, who's gonna play Emily?

  • Who's gonna play Emily?"

  • And he said-

  • - They were like, "Some random who no one's ever heard of."

  • - No, you hadn't been cast yet.

  • And so, no, no. What I mean is that was a bad joke.

  • What I mean is I was hearing that your name came up

  • and they said, "It's this amazing girl out of England

  • and she's so funny."

  • - Aw!

  • - And then I remember David calling and saying that

  • you'd gotten the part and I remember walking into the room

  • and like turning and meeting you.

  • And I just remember going like, "Hi, Buddy" in my head.

  • - Oh.

  • - And instant thought, I was like, "What a movie star!"

  • - What?

  • - First thought.

  • You were like shedding stardust.

  • It was crazy.

  • - Are you getting this?

  • - And I just remember thinking to myself,

  • "Emily Blunt is going to be the biggest deal."

  • And then we just chatted and we went for coffee

  • and I took you for a walk around where I live.

  • - So I will say

  • I was just talking to our mutual friend this morning,

  • to Jen, and I was saying,

  • "You know, I was so green coming into that situation."

  • And I said, "She was so kind to me."

  • And I didn't know New York, I didn't know anyone,

  • and you were like the warmest embrace

  • and you were so good to me.

  • And even though you were a colossal movie star at that time,

  • you treated me like a complete equal to you always.

  • You were one of the people I've known longest.

  • We've known each other for 18 years.

  • What?

  • - What? - [Emily] 18 years.

  • - Our relationship is the age of an adult.

  • - It really is!

  • - We have an adult relationship.

  • Crazy! Grown-up!

  • - That is a grown-up age!

  • A drinking age. - [Anne] In some countries.

  • - In England. (laughs)

  • In England.

  • - We're so drunk in England right now.

  • - Exactly! Exactly.

  • It was the wildest thing

  • and I know we just had a joy bomb of a time on that movie.

  • It was so wild.

  • I don't know if any of us knew

  • it was gonna become what it did.

  • I mean it's quoted to me every week.

  • I don't know about you.

  • - Yeah.

  • - It will be the movie that changed my life

  • and you couldn't have been kinder to me.

  • - Oh.

  • - Truly. Truly 'cause it was nerve-wracking.

  • And I mean we were both absolutely terrified.

  • - We were.

  • - La Streep, but. (laughs)

  • - I was so grateful to you, your gift of a personality,

  • but also like your Britishness.

  • Because I found the more nervous you get

  • the funnier you are.

  • (both laugh cheerfully)

  • - Yeah, that's how I get myself in trouble.

  • I make stupid jokes.

  • - But thank God for them because I mean

  • I love what you said.

  • It was like a joy bomb.

  • - Yeah.

  • - Just of non-stop "Mrs. Doubtfire" references.

  • - Yeah!

  • Which now my children love.

  • - Stop!

  • - So much.

  • - Oh my gosh! Time is so different.

  • - They quote, "A run-by fruiting" to me.

  • I'm like, "Oh!" (Anne laughing cheerfully)

  • And they try and do the voice and everything.

  • - Go on, do it for them.

  • - Oh, I saw him, Dear. It was a run-by fruiting.

  • (both laugh cheerfully)

  • - I love that. - It's the best.

  • It's the best.

  • - Oh, the terrorists they ran that way.

  • It was a run-by fruiting.

  • - So we are in "The Devil Wears Prada" club together.

  • - [Emily] Yes! - Which is incredible.

  • And now we're in another club together,

  • the Christopher Nolan Club, so.

  • - Oh yeah.

  • - Oh yeah.

  • - Oh! - Oh yeah!

  • - Captain Extraordinary.

  • (somber music)

  • (baby crying)

  • - I have been going to him all fucking day.

  • - When we did "Interstellar,"

  • Matthew McConaughey noted that

  • when we were up in the glacier, like the colder it was

  • and the harder the conditions were,

  • the bluer Chris's eyes got and the blonder his hair was.

  • And he just-

  • - Yeah. I always feel with Chris's hair,

  • I can tell when he's very happy with a take

  • 'cause his hair starts to dance.

  • He has quite expressive hair I noticed.

  • And I can tell it's almost like

  • he sort of vibrates a little bit

  • when he's really happy with the take.

  • He's not gonna tell you that he's that happy

  • because he's very English and so his version is like,

  • "Happy? Yeah. Moving on. Okay. Yeah. All right, let's go."

  • And you're like, "Was it good?" You know?

  • I remember when I first met Robert Downey Jr.,

  • I said, "You're gonna just love it so much

  • and the screws are gonna get tightened on you so much,

  • and it's just the most focused wonderful unchaotic set."

  • I said, "But you're going to get

  • some very British compliments.

  • There will be no smoke blown up your ass

  • and you're gonna have to be all right with it."

  • But he is extraordinary.

  • He's like a tempest of a talent

  • encased in this completely calm, authoritative person.

  • But he's fun isn't he?

  • - So fun! - And warm and accessible.

  • And it's all those things that people kind of

  • don't assume about him.

  • I think everyone's very intimidated.

  • - I think very, very, very intimidated.

  • And it's so exciting when you talk to him

  • and you realize he's still a human being.

  • - Yeah.

  • - [Anne] Having a life.

  • - And a dad.

  • - [Anne] That is very real. - Like a good dad.

  • - And, yeah.

  • - Like we've all been on those sets

  • where the director is like a bad dad.
