‘I felt like a nobody’: Emily Blunt talks about not being able to audition for Andrei Konchalovsky

Oscar nominee Emily Blunt shared her impressions of working with Andrei Konchalovsky. According to the Hollywood star, she met the director at the age of 19. The girl is King Charles II, played by Sir Patrick Stewart in the movie The Lion in Winter. She auditioned for the role of Henry’s young lover. But in the end, instead of Emily, they got Andrei Sergeevich’s wife, Yulia Vysotskaya.

As Emily admitted, she felt serious pressure from the director. The actor accused Konchalovsky of misogyny and called him “despicable”. “He was very cruel. He liked to put me in an uncomfortable position. I remember the experience very well. It was terrifying, I felt like nothing at the time,” Blunt told The Sun in an interview.

According to the artist, Andrei Sergeevich communicated with him disrespectfully. As Emily noted, she felt humiliated because she was not mentally prepared for such a “blow.”

Blunt had previously revealed details about filming the suggestive scenes. Among the lucky ones who managed to portray the actor’s lovers, there were many. But he felt a special connection with only one of them.
