While visiting Howard Stern this week, Emily Blunt answered the question on exactly one person’s mind: Why wasn’t there any nudity in Sicario? As it turns out, Blunt explained, there was supposed to be — but she vetoed it. “It came out because we didn’t agree with it,” she told Stern, later explaining that “we” was “my tits.” She wasn’t alone: Her co-star Benicio Del Toro, who would have also appeared in the scene, backed her up. Blunt’s remarks come just a day after Jessica Chastain argued that Hollywood over-sexualizes its female action stars, which is just more proof that Jessica Chastain is right about everything.
