Hollywood star Emily Blunt, who hails from England, recently became an American citizen. Blunt’s husband, fellow actor John Krasinski, is an American.
During a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Blunt said she was regretting her decision after watching the first Republican Presidential Debate.
“I became an American citizen recently, and that night, we watched the Republican debate and I thought, ‘This was a terrible mistake. What have I done?'”
She also said that being an American citizen was a “strange and alarming experience.”
In regards to renouncing her British citizenship she said the following:
“The thing that’s weird is I do get to keep both my British citizenship and this, but you have to renounce her [Queen Elizabeth II.] So, it’s kind of typically American — not to be rude — but I had to renounce her in the room but I don’t actually, technically renounce her.”
“They were like, ‘Just say it. You don’t have to mean it, but just say it.’”
“It is the hardest test I ever had to take. I guarantee most Americans would have no idea how to answer any of these questions.”
