“She’s a superhero. You could say she’s some sort of angel. She recognizes what people need, and she gives it to them, yet they discover something about themselves in the process. I don’t think she concerns herself with what she is. There’s nobody else like her—which she quite likes.” – Blunt for Vogue US, on Mary Poppins.
