When you’re shooting a movie called Into the Woods and you need to disguise a baby bump, there’s only one thing to do. “I was hiding behind every tree in that wood!” Emily Blunt joked in an interview with Disney fan club magazine Disney twenty-three. “Colleen Atwood, who’s the most remarkable costume designer, as everybody knows, was so accommodating,” says Blunt, who is married to actor John Krasinski.
Is Meryl Streep a good witch or a bad witch? Streep’s Into the Woods character isn’t quite so easy to categorize, but she certainly looks frightening in this newly unveiled poster. The Witch, a role originated on Broadway by Bernadette Peters in 1986, is much more demanding than Streep’s last musical performance in 2008’s Mamma Mia! Nonetheless, the 65-year-old actress has been ecstatic about the dark fairy-tale adaptation in interviews, gleefully boasting that composer Stephen Sondheim wrote a new song just for her.
