Hollywood actress Emily Blunt has confessed that once upon a time she used to think that acting was a ridiculous career choice. The

Devil Wears Prada

star used to think she had chosen a "silly" job and almost thought about quitting acting to do something "worthwhile" instead, Femalefirst reported.



"A movie can change your life. I used to be very British about it all, 'This is a lot of silliness. I should be doing something worthwhile'," Blunt said.


However, the 26-year-old Golden Globe award winning beauty's opinion changed after a distraught fan told her how much better she had felt in herself after watching her critically-acclaimed comedy film.



"Then this woman came up to me and said, 'I have to tell you, I had the worst day. My husband divorced me, my kid got expelled from school. Then I watched

The Devil Wears Prada

and I laughed and thought how marvellous it was that a simple comedy could have that effect on someone," Blunt said.
