Emily Blunt stopped by today's GOOD MORNING AMERICA to talk about her upcoming role as the Baker's Wife in the highly anticipated film INTO THE WOODS. The actress shared that while preparing for the role, her vocal teacher had her do some peculiar singing exercises.
"I mean the craziest vocal exercises," shared the actress, "from lying on the gournd and singing the song, I mean really embarassing. He made me go 'goo goo gaa gaa'!"
INTO THE WOODS, hitting theaters on December 25th, is a modern twist on the beloved Brothers Grimm fairy tales, intertwining the plots of a few choice stories and exploring the consequences of the characters' wishes and quests.
This humorous and heartfelt musical follows the classic tales of Cinderella (Anna Kendrick), Little Red Riding Hood (Lilla Crawford), Jack and the Beanstalk (Daniel Huttlestone), and Rapunzel (MacKenzie Mauzy) - all tied together by an original story involving a baker and his wife (James Corden & Emily Blunt), their wish to begin a family and their interaction with the witch (Meryl Streep) who has put a curse on them. Rob Marshall, the talented filmmaker behind the Academy Award-winning musical "Chicago" and Disney's "Pirates of the Caribbean: OnStranger Tides," helms the film, which is based on the Tony-winning original musical by James Lapine, who also penned the screenplay, and legendary composer Stephen Sondheim, who provides the music and lyrics.
