ICYMI: Emily Blunt is Marie Claire's March cover star! (opens in new tab) The actress sat down with the son of MC's former Editor-in-Chief, Anne Fulenwider, to openly discuss a topic close to their hearts: stuttering. Blunt has been working with the American Institute of Stuttering to raise awareness about the misidentification of stuttering, a speech impediment she has dealt with throughout her life.

"My stutter really started to take hold around six or seven and then kind of got progressively more challenging for me, and as I reached about 11 or 12, it was pretty ingrained. It wasn’t the whole part of me; it was just a part of who I was," Blunt explained. "There were certain people who liked to define me by that. That was tough. I decided not to really spend time with those people. I’ve probably only now come to realize that everybody has something growing up. That just happened to be my thing."

After the interview, Blunt played a game of Pop Quiz, where MC asks cover stars to answer fun, random questions about themselves. During the game, Blunt revealed she can play the ukulele (badly), prefers chocolate over cheese (who doesn't?), listens to Billie Eilish's "Bad Guy" on repeat (same), and worked at a catering company to make her first dollar (for "rich people parties!").
