The Burger King Menu Item Emily Blunt Used To Eat Every Day

Emily Blunt has impressed audiences with her acting talents over the years. Notably, she found a wide audience when she starred opposite Anne Hathaway in "The Devil Wears Prada” back in 2008, per Us Weekly. The actress went on to star in a number of other movies and television shows — eventually marrying John Krasinski in 2010 — and her intense work schedule required her to keep her energy up.

Blunt expounded up her dietary habits in a recent episode of the podcast "River Cafe Table 4," a program dedicated to chats with politicians, artists, activists, and other celebrities about how food plays a central role in their life and worldview. In the episode, Blunt talked about how she loves cacio e pepe more than any other pasta, gave out a recipe for roast chicken, and recalled how she would constantly visit a Burger King at the age of 18 before hitting the theatre stage alongside established celebrities like Judi Dench.

A deep love of Burger King's double cheeseburger

In a recent episode of "River Cafe Table 4," Emily Blunt stated that during her youth, she needed to have four or five small meals throughout the day in order to stay active. Blunt even recalled during her early days of acting in the theater, she would go to the Burger King at Piccadilly Circus and order a double cheeseburger with fries at 6:15 p.m. every night before going onstage at 7:30 p.m. Blunt also mentioned that she felt a touch of embarrassment about eating so many burgers before performing, but the big-name stars she worked alongside in her early days never commented on this habit.

No matter how famous you get, you can take a page from Blunt and always have a soft spot in your heart for your favorite fast food menu items. While the actress later spoke about her experience going to fine dining establishments, few memories sparked such joy as the rush to the local Burger King before hitting the stage in the first days of her career.
