Emily Blunt discussed her childhood battle with a stutter as she hosted the 13th Annual American Institute for Stuttering Gala in New York.

The Quiet Place actress, 36, has been vocal about her own problems with stuttering as a child, and revealed she overcame it by observing television actors and practicing in a mirror. 

‘Because I couldn’t speak fluently, I watched and listened… I’d be on the Tube, and I’d wonder about people and invent back stories for everyone,’ she told Harpers Bazaar.

”There’s always been a natural desire to walk in the shoes of others… It started quite young, because it was the only tool I had to speak properly. 

‘I was that kid, upstairs in my room, trying out stuff in the mirror. But I’d never tell anyone about it. It was always very private.’ 

Emily hosted the charity event, which provides universally affordable speech therapy to people who stutter.   

The star amped up the glamour in a pink dress as she showed off her impressive style in the decadent frock, which consisted of a pleated skirt with lace detail and a pussybow neck.
