Emily Blunt had a blast portraying Mary Poppins, but she does admit that the magical nanny is very strange.

The 35-year-old actress stopped by The “Late Show” on Thursday to discuss her latest role in “Mary Poppins Returns” with host Stephen Colbert. If they took a look at the upcoming Disney movie poster, Blunt made a comment about how Mary Poppins had a twinkle in her eyes, and looked a “bit sinister.”

“I always thought that Mary Poppins seemed a little sinister,” Colbert equipped with Blunt answers, “Well, I find them creepy.”

“She is, because she comes unannounced, takes the house,” Colbert agreed. Blunt laughed and joked that “Disney now just like ‘Noooooo!'”

“But I loved doing it, it was just the best. It was really great,” she added.

Meanwhile, Blunt also stars in “A Quiet Place,” co-starring and directed by her husband John Krasinkski.

“When he beat me the one-liner, because he had been offered, to use as an actor, I was like, ‘Oh, well that is a great idea. You should direct that movie,'” Blunt recalled. “When he wrote this, I previously suggested a friend of mine for the film. And then I read his script and I was like, ‘You should fire her now. You should call her and fire her!'”

ET recently caught up with the British actress, where she opened up about working with her husband, and also admitted that the filming of the “Poppins” flying sequence was: “horrible.”
