    Emily Blunt's Daughter Almost Found Out That She And Husband John Krasinski Are Famous

    "If they can remain oblivious for the longest time I'd be thrilled."

    Emily Blunt doesn’t want her kids to know how famous she or husband John Krasinski really are.

    During a recent interview with The Sunday Times, Blunt explained why she wants their kids to remain “oblivious” to her and Krasinski’s fame.

    "If they can remain oblivious for the longest time I'd be thrilled,” she said. “They don't even want to see what I do. They don't even like it when I put on makeup.”

    "Someone at school had clearly said it. I was like, 'Um…not really, I don't think I am,” Blunt continued. “Did someone say that to you, Haze?' She said, 'Yeah,' but then she wouldn't divulge much more, you know, but it's weird. It's weird.”

    Blunt noted that she doesn’t want her daughters to know about her or Krasinski’s fame because she doesn’t want them to "feel any more important or special or [feel like] there's a glare on them any more than other kids."
