What do you get when you combine a new mother, a sex club, a birthday party, and a gaggle of celebrities? The weirdest night out ever. Or maybe the awesomest — we’re not sure yet.
Anyway, that’s the combo that Emily Blunt, our favorite sharp-tongued Brit from The Devil Wears Prada, says happened in London when she, her husband John Krasinski, Tom Cruise, and Matt Damon all got together to celebrate Matt’s 43rd birthday at The Box, a fetish burlesque nightspot known for its sexually explicit cabaret.
Emily, mother of 3-month old daughter Hazel, revealed to Jimmy Kimmel that she was in London filming the action movie Edge of Tomorrow, when Tom flew out to celebrate Matt’s big day. Husband John decided that Tom’s trip to London warranted doing “something crazy” to celebrate, so they decided on a night at The Box, a club opened by Simon Hammerstein, grandson of the famous Broadway producer Oscar Hammerstein. Apparently “theater” runs in the family.
The club’s website bills itself as a “Theatre of Varieties,” but according to the The Daily Mail, it’s basically a really, really, expensive (tables start at £1,000) live porn show not for the faint of heart. The 30-year-old new mommy did admit in the interview that the performances seen at the club are meant to “make you cringe and run for your life,” so there’s a glowing endorsement. The club is a draw for celebrities and A-listers, reportedly attracting the likes of Prince Harry, Zara Phillips, Emma Watson, and Keira Knightley.
The Brit says that she and her hubby kind of blindsided Tom with their plans for the evening. 'He thought it was going to be a nice, civilized dinner,' the actress said. 'So I emailed him and was like, "Tom, change of plan. We're now gonna go to this club called The Box.” Tom’s response? “Well just don't let me walk out of there alone!"
Em capped off the awkward convo by admitting that they didn’t let Tom leave alone, but doesn’t reveal any info about who the 51-year-old action star may have left with. What’s worse? Jimmy didn’t even try to ask for the deets, which left us wanting him demoted from host to cue card holder. You don’t not ask who Tom Cruise left a sex club with, Jimmy. Fail.
What do you think of Em and Tom’s wild night in London? Sound off in the comments.
