On Wednesday night’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Emily Blunt revealed how daughter Hazel reacted to seeing her mom as Mary Poppins. The actress, who plays the starring role in Disney’s upcoming sequel Mary Poppins Returns, told Kimmel that the 4-year-old seemed to be either shocked or underwhelmed, watching the trailer “with a completely impassive expression.”
“She just gave me nothing. And she was just holding [my iPhone] and she goes, ‘Play it again. Play it again. Play it again,'” the Quiet Place actress laughs, mimicking her daughter’s monotone voice. “It was as if she was checking like, ‘Do I like it? Do I think it’s good? What am I supposed to do?'”
But Hazel’s reaction may be less disinterest and more shock, Blunt admits. As she told Kimmel, “it must be so strange” for the young girl to see her mom as such an iconic character.
It’s not the first time that the mother of two (and wife to actor John Krasinski) has shared how her daughters feel about her latest role. “My daughters, in general, loathe to see me on screen,” she confessed on Late Night with Seth Meyers back in April, adding that Hazel and Violet, 2, are “creepy obsessed” with Julie Andrews, who played the original Mary Poppins. She also joked that when she FaceTimed Hazel from set, her oldest daughter would say, “Take that silly old Mary Poppins wig off.”
Regardless of how the two toddlers feel about the movie, though, they won’t have to wait much longer to see it. Mary Poppins Returns is set to come out in theaters on December 19, 2018.
