The Adjustment Bureau costars Matt Damon and Emily Blunt were the lucky ones chosen to be the first-ever cover stars of both Men's and Women's Heath, which hit newsstands today. Emily has been doing double duty promoting their collaboration as well as Gnomeo and Juliet, and we had the chance to learn all about her former gnome fears while at the recent junket for the animated picture. Emily and Matt are on the March editions of the Health magazines to chat all about their upcoming film, their close friendship, and how she got into shape to play a ballet dancer. Matt also shared a few choice words about movies he feels are made just based on a star's power at the box office — projects that he strives to avoid. They said:
- Matt on Emily's acting abilities: "There are a lot of great actresses her age right now, but Emily is just f—king unbelievable."
- Emily on having fun with Matt: "I met Matt and he was lovely and very funny, and instantly, I thought, 'Oh, we could be like teenage boys together. Just be weird and stupid and silly.'"
- Emily on getting in shape to play a ballet dancer: "I looked like an aerobics teacher. My shoulders puffed out, my back looked like there was a barrel of snakes in it and I had an eight-pack!"
- Matt on movies that are just star vehicles: "That’s like watching someone jerk off, really. It’s just absolutely not at all interesting, and not something I want to spend any time doing."
