Emily Blunt: Sicario character must stink!

Sicario star Emily Blunt worried about her character's hygiene in the movie with only two tops featuring in her wardrobe.

(Cover) - EN Star Style - Actress Emily Blunt thought her Sicario alter ego must reek as she only wore two tops throughout the entire movie.

The British beauty's latest role as FBI agent Kate Macer in the thriller flick is a far cry from her previous characters, especially the fashionable assistant she portrayed in 2006 feature The Devil Wears Prada. Emily's same-named character worked at a high-end glossy magazine and her wardrobe was full of countless designer pieces, but Kate’s wardrobe was extremely basic.

"I think I had two blue T-shirts for the entire film," Emily laughed to Britain's Metro newspaper of her Sicario costumes. "They did get a wash, I promise you, but I often thought, 'She must reek!'"

The 32-year-old star is currently busy promoting the feature with fellow cast members Josh Brolin and Benicio Del Toro. Various events require her to dress up, such as premieres and press conferences. Although she looks fabulous whenever in the spotlight, the footwear has taken a toll on her.

"I've been wearing so many heels recently that by big toes are really strained," she sighed, wiggling her feet. "Too much gallivanting around."

This isn't the first time Emily has commented on stilettos. During Cannes Film Festival in May (15) she was quizzed on the footwear rules of the prestigious event. Some guests were denied entry to a screening of Carol as their shoes weren't smart or high enough.

"Yeah, that’s very disappointing," Emily said at the time. "To think there are these waves of equality and waves of people discovering that women are so fascinating and interesting to watch and bankable (on-screen).

"Everyone should wear flats to be honest. We shouldn't be wearing high heels anyways. That's my point of view. I just prefer wearing Converse sneakers."
