Last night on the Late Show with David Letterman, Blunt revealed that she is getting sick of her characters being treated terribly by Streep, especially after the British actress came to the Oscar’s winner’s rescue on-set—while pregnant!—essentially saving Streep’s life. “She owes me big time,” Blunt said.
Blunt told Letterman that she even proposed to Streep that the two reverse power roles for a future collaboration. “I think at some point I should play the Queen of Versailles and she could be my lonely dressmaker,” Blunt said of her peer. After the audience applauded, Blunt continued, “I think it’s a great idea and I mentioned it to her.” Sadly, Streep did not seem as enthused about the power dynamic change-up. “Her response was, ‘Dream on,’” Blunt confided.
