According to Page Six, actress Emily Blunt is under criticism for an unearthed interview in which she called a Chili’s waiter “enormous”.
The 40-year-old actress decided to share a story about her dining experience at one of the chain restaurant’s locations in Louisiana while making the movie “Looper” while appearing as a guest on the UK’s “The Jonathan Ross Show” in September 2012.
“The girl who was serving me was enormous,” Blunt told the namesake host. “I think she got freebie meals at Chili’s.”
According to Page Six, though Ross, 62, chimed in to note that there’s “nothing wrong with that,” he had previously quipped that “when you go to Chili’s, you can see why so many of [their] American friends are enormous.” Mimicking the server’s Southern drawl, Blunt said the woman asked her, “Did anyone ever tell you you look a lot like Emily Blunt?”
“And I said, ‘I have heard that, yes,'” she recalled responding, to which the staffer then asked, “Are you Emily Blunt?”
The ‘Devil Wears Prada’ actor claimed that after the woman verified her identity, the woman exclaimed, “What are y’all doing here?!” with enthusiasm.
he ‘Oppenheimer’ star has since released a statement, telling Page Six her “jaw was on the floor” when she watched a video of her appearance.
“I’m appalled that I would say something so insensitive, hurtful and unrelated to whatever story I was trying to tell on a talk show,” Blunt lamented, reported Page Six.
