Emily Blunt Held Out For A 'Classy' Beauty Sponsorship

The wait was certainly worth her while — Emily is the face of Yves Saint Laurent’s ‘Opium’ fragrance.

Emily Blunt tries to put up a confident front when telling the UK’s Telegraph about her new YSL sponsorship, saying, “I’d been asked to do a couple of things but none were as classy as this. And I got to work with a leopard.” But her true humble personality shines through when she admits that she has no idea how she got so lucky as to be chosen for the coveted role.

When asked why she thinks she was picked, Emily jokingly responds: “There was no one else? They made a mistake, a terrible mistake.”

It’s nice to know that celebs pick and choose their spokesperson roles carefully, not taking the first thing that comes along with a paycheck. Emily definitely held out for an excellent position — previous YSL Opium spokeswomen include supermodels Kate Moss and Linda Evangelista!
