Emily Blunt has apologized for slamming her American citizenship during a recent interview, saying that she meant it as a joke.
As ENTmania! reported, the British actress slammed her recently acquired American citizenship, calling it ‘a terrible mistake’ and describing the day she got it as a ‘sad’ one. This pissed off a good number of people, including hosts of Fox and Friends, with one of them saying that she should leave Hollywood.
But on Thursday’s Today show, Blunt clarified her remarks, saying, ‘It was so not the intention to hurt anybody or cause any offense, so I really apologize. It was just an offhand joke. I think I’ll probably leave the political jokes to late night or something.’
She then made a complete U-turn, saying of her American citizenship, ‘It’s really meaningful. My two favorite people in the world are American, my husband and my daughter. It was kind of a special day. It was great.’
