Emily Blunt dresses up as Lady Liberty on Ellen

Posted on

Becoming a U.S. citizen is hardly easy. Not only do you have to take a test — a really tough one — but apparently, you then have to dress up as Lady Liberty to sing “Yankee Doodle” and be terrified by a strange man dressed as Uncle Sam. 

Well, at least if you’re Emily Blunt. The British actress, who recently became a U.S. citizen, stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Monday. Watch the scene in the video above.

Just last week, EW caught up with Blunt and her Sicario co-stars Josh Brolin and Benicio del Toro at the Toronto International Film Festival, where she talked about how the Denis Villeneuve-directed drug-trade thriller “doesn’t shy away” from depicting the brutality of the Mexican drug cartels. 

“I think it reveals how cheap life has become for everybody,” Blunt said. Check out more from that interview here
