Justin Theroux quizzed Emily Blunt about pregnancy after fight scene

Emily Blunt’s The Girl on the Train co-star Justin Theroux guessed the actress was pregnant on set and cornered her after a fight scene.
The actress discovered she was pregnant while working on the thriller, but decided to keep the news from cast and crew for as long as possible, so no one would give her special attention.
But when she held back on some of the fight sequences with Justin, who plays her ex-husband in the movie adaptation of Paula Hawkins’ novel, he instinctively knew the Brit was hiding something.
“It turned out to be a much more physical role than I had anticipated,” Blunt tells The Hollywood Reporter. “She (character) gets in a fair few tussles and gets knocked around a bit by various characters.
“Justin guessed because we’re very good friends. We were going over the final sequence, and I was being a bit wussy about some of the stunts. He pulled me aside and was, ‘What is with you? Are you pregnant?’ And I was like, ‘Yes’.”
She then came clean with another fellow castmate, Welsh actor Luke Evans.
“I was one of the first people to find out,” the actor told Britain’s This Morning show earlier this month (Sep16). “There’s a little bit of a kerfuffle (fight) and just before, Emily leans into me and whispers, ‘I’m four months pregnant!’
“She decided to tell me at that moment… But she had to tell me, I was about to throw her around the room, I was like, ‘Cheers, Em!”‘
Blunt became a mum for the second time in June (16), when she gave birth to daughter Violet.
