Emily Blunt in L.A.

Posted on May 02, 2013

Oh, hey Ems! Could you pick us up a couple of those vegan chocolate chip cookies and some of the Brazilian rice and beans salad while you’re there? That shit’s like crack to us.


Emily Blunt shops at Whole Foods market.


On second thought, you look kinda pissed right now. We’re sorry. We’re going.

But hey, you look cute! Say, how come you don’t pay someone to do this for you? We sure as hell would. After all, you pay people to pick out your dresses and do your ma-




Right. Going now.

  • What? She doesn’t bring her own bags? Pffft….

    • Aaaaaand one of them is double bagged. In SF where I live, you have to pay for bags now.

      • OneBonBonIsPoison

        If that’s the West Hollywood Whole Foods (hard to tell, they all look basically the same), we have to pay for bags now too. But $0.10 probably isn’t a huge hardship for Ms. Blunt.

        • Jecca2244

          They make you pay for them in Europe too. Although when I was working in northern italy i would use the bags as trash bags so i guess it worked out.

          There would be a revolt in the streets if they did that here in Boston.

    • Maybe she reuses those bags in others ways. I often forget mine, and we reuse both plastic and paper in our home.

      • raininmai

        I’m guilty of not bringing my bags to the store. But we reuse every last one of them in cleaning up after the dogs, for example. The paper ones get used too for other things.

      • JasmineAM

        I always keep the plastic bags in my car for trash bags. I’m a lazy, dirty college student. They do come in handy.

      • I reuse grocery bags instead of buying garbage bags.

      • MartyBellerMask

        I need to get the paper ones every once in a while. Otherwise our bananas would never get ripe.

    • 3boysful

      That was my first thought, too! Maybe that’s why she looks pissed–left the bags in the car.

      • I shop at the Venice Whole Foods. Not bringing your own bags will get you slut-shamed for sure.

        • Bringing your own bags should be the admission ticket to the parking lot at the Venice Whole Foods; it might actually cut down on the volume of cars.

    • Mona_819

      I was thinking the same thing!

  • I could comment if I liked or not her outfit, but I wished I could look that good on my shopping trip to the supermarket.

  • SewingSiren

    But what about the TREES!!

    • K9 dr

      Maybe she’s like me and every once in a while asks for bags for recycling newspaper.

      • There you go! Help destroy the forest so you have a container for your paper recycling!

        • Whee! It’s fun feeling superior!

          • anotherkate

            I know! What’s better is that most paper grocery bags these days are made from 100% recycled paper, therefore killing no trees. But she’s terrible! And I’m not envious of anything about her life, I swear!

          • SewingSiren

            Just to be clear I was joking about the trees. I do bring my bags to the grocery because if I don’t they charge me a nickel. VEry Pavlovian. I don’t have problem with brown paper bags , unless they have sermons printed on them. I do use plastic bags from Wal-Mart to make gloves to pick up my dog’s doo-doo. So now you know pretty much everything about me.

          • Oh man, this made me cackle way too loudly! 😀

          • MilaXX

            mi gente!
            Except I use Target bags for Stormie’s poo. They are much sturdier and NOTHING is worse than a flimsy poo bag that burst before you can make it to the trash.

          • I would never dare enter a Whole Foods or Trader Joes without my own bags. But for some reason, I always take the plastic at Walmart. However, last week they charged me 10 cents for a bag!

        • Kimbolina

          Aren’t paper grocery bags usually made from recycled paper? So it’s sort of like you’re using a recyclable to hold your recyclables to be recycled into new recyclables.

          And it’s better than throwing a stack of newspapers out on the sidewalk for recycling only to have them strewn all over the place from wind, animals, etc.

        • Sarah

          I like to take paper bags and fold them, origami-style, into little endangered animals, and then place them in the forest. It’s my way of giving back to the trees. Don’t worry, I’ll tell them you’re looking out for them.

          • Qitkat

            Snort! You’ve just given me an idea for an artists book 🙂

          • Sarah

            Haha. I don’t even use paper bags. I don’t USE BAGS AT ALL! I am the MASTER!! I go the the club store and just place loose items in my trunk! I make a mockery of snooty cloth bag-havers! Carry with your bare hands! Plants had to DIE to make fabric for your cloth bag! (I kid. But I really don’t use bags.)

          • capybara_cafe

            That’s what a giant purse is for, amirite?

          • SewingSiren

            YEs! And skip the blasted check out all together!

          • Sarah

            Hey, I think that’s a misdemeanor! But I’m not mad at skipping the checkout. They should figure out a way to scan all of your goods at once and charge it to your checking account as you walk out the door.

          • jetpackdino

            That is the most awesome thing I have read, ever.

          • Sarah


          • formerlyAnon

            I bow down. I will look anxiously for your every posting for weeks, fearing to miss another such gem. In, of course, an entirely well-balanced, non-stalker way.

          • Sarah


  • Love her. Love her (totally understandable) bitch face. Love that she is so down to Earth.

  • Joanna Thomas

    Where are those shoes from? I want some.

  • VeryClaire

    I bought those sandals at DSW last week. Super cute.

    • Lesley

      are those michael kors?

      • Heather

        I have some very similar ones from Franco Sarto – from Nordstrom. I like that her outfit is cute and normal.

  • She looks mad that she can’t show the label on her bag. I mean, that’s the only reason I can come up with other than maybe the leather on her sandals is starting to chafe her feet.

  • Pants_are_a_must

    That’s a “celebrities! They’re just like us!” moment if there ever was one. She’s got the “ugh REALLY? Just when I’m carrying my own bags in this admittedly cute outfit?” expression down pat.

    • Maybe she knew she’d be vilified for daring to use the store’s bags.

  • maggiemaybe

    I wish I could look that cute when I’m pissed off at the grocery store.

  • jackie cohen

    Those 2 bags of groceries cost her $300.00

    • Winter_White

      But the paper bags make excellent cat toys. So, there’s that little bonus.

    • MilaXX

      nah I can get two bags for around $100. The trick is the loose bins.

  • Love those sandals – strappy without being too fussy.

  • MilaXX

    Are you guys talking about the American Baking Company cookies? Dang they are GOOD! I treat myself to one every time I am there. They sell online too.
    She looks cute, but ready to seriously kick some butt.

    • No, they’re these massive, individually wrapped cookies with a store deli label on them. They’re sold in the South Street store in Philly, right next to the salad bar. To die for.

      • MilaXX

        I go to Callow Hill store. If I’m on South Street I’m hitting Essene. I may make a trip to South Street to check them out. So far nothing compares to the ABC cookies. The espresso one was so good I had the shakes from the caffeine.

      • I’ll need to try those plus that Brazilian rice and beans salad! Love her. Used to have a dress made out of a like textile except they were Scotties instead of teardrop shapes…was sad when it finally fell apart from wear…

      • Sunraya

        My daughter goes to school in Philly. I am going to have to check out those cookies when I visit next week. Yum.

  • That is January Jones-caliber bitchface, that is.

  • Qitkat

    tsk tsk. Where’s your recyclable shopping bags, my dear?
    Cute top though.

    • Plastic bags are not actually recyclable. But many animal shelters accept them.

      • Qitkat

        So what’s happening to all of them that the grocery stores are collecting? I’m disillusioned if they are sending them to the landfill.
        ADDED: I think you are quite mistaken. Look at plasticbagrecycling dot org.

    • capybara_cafe

      Every once in a while I “forget” my bags if it’s a store that has good thick paper ones, and I just suck it up and pay for them. I’ve been using an apron pattern I cut out of a Trader Joe’s bag for over 2 years now. That’s sturdy stuff! I also live them for draining if I know I’m going to be making home made fries.
      I really didn’t know that there were still areas where you don’t get a big plastic bin for recycling stuff like newspapers. Wow. We actually get a separate full sized trash can for stuff.

      • Qitkat

        We have 3 bins for single-stream recycling that Waste Management picks up every other week, newspapers, scrap paper, cans and bottles. No bags but several grocery stores have a barrel for plastic bags that go to recyclers. I live south of Denver.

        • capybara_cafe

          Ahhh, all of our stuff can go in together. We can put plastic bags in as well, but not single ones. We have to have a minimum of 3, then tied up inside of another one, otherwise they clog up the sorting equipment. I think the only thing we still can’t recycle is styrofoam. I wish more electronics manufacturers would use that weird recycled cardboard stuff to hold things in their packages, instead of giant blocks of foam. It takes up the whole trash can!

  • I don’t like any of it together, but I do adore those sandals.

  • crash1212

    SO cute!

  • Cute outfit and all, but I can’t seem to come to terms with her blonde hair. I don’t think it suits her.

  • Are you sure that is her? Those sunglasses are so big her face is unrecognizable.

  • Adding up how much she must have spent to get 2 bags-worth is a more impressive display of star-power than loaner diamonds on the red carpet.

  • rainwood1

    I love those sandals and that she looks like a normal person. And I’ll have to try that salad, T Lo. I’m not crazy about WF baked goods, but Brazilian rick and beans sound like a winner.

    • SewingSiren

      I love rice and beans. I want to try the rice and beans from every country in the world.

  • msdamselfly

    MAN, She’s in good shape!

  • travelgirl28

    I saw Ellen Pompeo shopping at my Whole Foods once. It is amazing how small (and thin) these people are in real life!

    • Heather

      I saw George Stephanopolous at the Chelsea Market once. He’s so wee that my first thought was, “damn, that’s a really short dude.” THEN I was like, “oh my, that’s George Stephanopolous!”

  • lobsterlen

    Emily looks pissed because the paparazzi caught her using paper bags and not the reusable.

  • mmc2315

    SUPER cute sandals, and love the jeans with them.

  • jetpackdino

    I thought they did some study showing that those reusable bags we all bring with us to Whole Foods (I use them too) are laden with dangerous bacteria. Eh. Can’t win.
