Two prominent figures in the industry, they have been married for over eight years now. But, they have always kept their careers separate. They say that they did it to keep each other's careers more distinct. But, recently they changed their decision to keep their careers separate. When John wrote the script for A Quiet Place, he wrote a part that he meant for Emily. But, he was afraid of keeping it in as he didn't want her to say no to it or of her saying yes to it just because John asked her. But after reading the script, Blunt claimed that she could not imagine anyone except her playing the role. Emily said that she had a rule for movies, that she waited a minimum of five months between projects. But, she only broke that rule for A Quiet Place, because it was John's film.
