Are Emily Blunt and Dwayne Johnson Friends in Real Life?

When Dwayne Johnson Agreed to Star in “Jungle Cruise” in 2015the film had been mulling over in the minds of Disney producers for at least a decade, The Hollywood Reporter noted. While finding his male lead was a cinch, Johnson’s counterpart turned out to be a different story. Disney and Johnson knew they were Emily Blunt as scientist Dr. Lily Houghton wanted to play. “I had always admired her as an actor, but even when I watched her on talk shows, she had a personality that was bubbly, cool and very, very charming,” Johnson said. But Blunt wasn’t interested.

The producers spent most of 2017 trying to get the British actor to read the script — without success. But desperate times call for desperate measures, so director Jaume Collet-Serra flew to New York to give her a script in a package that included a video shot by Johnson himself. She read the script and fell in love. In early 2018, Blunt’s recording was a foregone conclusion, Variety reported.

She also watched the clip, but Blunt apparently ghosted Johnson. †[The video] was great. And I… I actually never heard from Emily again. Didn’t respond at all,” he said. Blunt looked at it and enjoyed it. She just didn’t think she should answer. “I didn’t know you’d be that sensitive,” she laughed. Maybe started off on the wrong foot, Johnson and Blunt came in a different way from “Jungle Cruise”.

Emily Blunt and Dwayne Johnson love each other

How much in common do a classically trained British actor and a former American wrestler have in common? If those two groups are represented by Emily Blunt and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, then a lot. The pair developed a deep bond while filming the 2021 adventure film ‘Jungle Cruise’, which they are both grateful for forging. “I think it’s rare that you take someone out of a movie who becomes a real, kind of friend for life,” Blunt said. entertainment tonight† “And he has. He is my biggest buddy and will always be my biggest buddy.”

In interviews, Blunt and Johnson can’t help but tease each other constantly. In particular, Blunt seems to point out that despite his size, Johnson wouldn’t do well in rugged locations. “You’d be lost without your lip balm!” she said during a sit-down with Procession† “And you wouldn’t have your soap. [Johnson]is the fairest man alive.”

Aside from that, Johnson and Blunt sincerely admire each other. “No sexton of mine has ever put in a harder work—with more tenacity, stamina, charm and eloquence than this chic British bird, Emily Blunt,” Johnson enthused. Instagram† Also, Blunt has learned a valuable lesson about never judging a book by its cover. “I imagined him as a larger-than-life person with a personality to match…I quickly realized he was a gentle soul. He’s also wise and funny,” she told Parade.

Dwayne Johnson is also friends with Emily Blunt’s husband

After coming aboard “Jungle Cruise,” Dwayne Johnson made sure she bonded with Emily Blunt’s husband, John Krasinski. “I was a fan of John’s and had a few conversations with him,” Johnson said Procession† As his affection for Blunt grew, so did his friendship with “The Office” alum. And the feeling was mutual. Krasinski soon found a way into Johnson’s private gym traveling with him, what a… big problem, as The Rock protects his training room very well. †[It’s] so neat. He’s such a germaphobe,” Blunt told entertainment tonight† But Johnson made an exception.

Krasinski was unaware and just bluntly asked him while filming “Jungle Cruise”, and Johnson was cool with it. “I met the producer for dinner the next night and he said, ‘You know, there’s never been a human in that gym. Will you report and tell me what it is?'” he said on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” in 2018. Indeed, it was not as he expected. “I walked in and it was like spaceships had landed. He has about 40 devices that I had never seen in my life,” he told DeGeneres.

Johnson and Krasinski continued to share their mutual interest for years afterwards. In May 2020, the two even partnered for the Murphy Challengea training-inspired Memorial Day fundraiser, an experience that Johnson thanked “Brother John” for introducing him to Instagram
