Emily Blunt might have *the* role of the year playing the beloved Marry Poppins in its 2018 remake but, in real life, shes just like the rest of us.

The 35-year-old actress grew up listening to the Backstreet Boys and knows every lyric off by heart, so when she got the chance to duet with the manband earlier this month, it was kind of a big deal.

As in, best-day-of-my-life big deal.

Indeed, Emily isnt quite over the spectacle that was AJ McLean, Howie Dorough, Nick Carter, Kevin Richardson and Brian Littrell singing 1999 hit I Want It That Way with her on The Ellen DeGeneres show two weeks ago, and says it ranks up there with her top #LifeGoals.

Come on, it was kind of the only hashtag life goals moment for me, the mum-of-two explained to Entertainment Tonight at the Hollywood premiere of Mary Poppins Returns on Thursday.

They were so charming and so lovely and I grew up, of course, listening to them obsessively. It was a major moment actually, up there with one of the best days of my life.

No judgement here, Emily!

The actress looked stunning in white as she hit the premiers red carpet with husband John Krasinski outside the El Capitan Theatre earlier this week.

The couple looked adorable as they posed for paparazzi, with John looking every bit the proud spouse after admitting watching Emily in Mary Poppins for the first time made him weep like a baby.

The first time I saw it, they give you a tissue box in the screening room, and I thought, “Oh, thats very nice. I dont have a cold”, he told Ellen DeGeneres on Wednesday.

And they started screening the movie and 25 minutes into the movie, I stood up and went to the back of the room.

He continued: Emily said, “Do you not like it? Ive never seen this happen?”. I was pushing through all of the muffins and bagels that were in the back looking for napkins.

I was like, “I need anything to stop this crying!” I was crying so much I blew through the tissue box in 20 minutes, had to go to the napkins, and then when I ran out of napkins it was all sweater.
