Emily Blunt: I tailed Hopkins

Emily Blunt followed Sir Anthony Hopkins around "like a bad smell".

The British actress has established herself as one of Hollywood's brightest talents, but she still feels star struck around famous faces. Emily had the opportunity to work with Anthony on 2010 movie The Wolfman and she made no secret of her admiration for the Oscar winner.

"I followed him around like a bad smell... I loved him so much," she told Total Film. "Everything is just simmering underneath and you can't take your eyes off him. That ease he has is something I've really tried to adopt."

Emily has worked with a host of big names, including Meryl Streep, Ewan McGregor and Matt Damon.

She has revealed that teaming up with Matt for The Adjustment Bureau was thrilling because she had a crush on him when she was younger. Emily says working with Matt was a breath of fresh air - because he was so polite.

"He's one of the most naturalistic actors you'll want to work with, and he's also just a blast. He's disgustingly nice to people," she quipped. "I've grown up watching Meryl and Anthony, and I was a big fan of Matt. When I was in school Good Will Hunting was coming out, and I was like, 'Oh my God, Matt Damon is so cool!' I was still in that teenage stage."
