Donald Trump might actually be able to follow through on his promise to reduce immigration as he's already made British actress Emily Blunt regret her new US citizenship. "I became an American citizen recently," Blunt told the Hollywood Reporter when asked about Trump. "That night we watched the Republican debate, and I thought, 'This was a terrible mistake. What have I done?'" Blunt, who became a naturalized citizen in August, discussed other reservations with her new status last week on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Fox News reports

"I'm not sure I'm entirely thrilled about it," Blunt said last week on Jimmy Kimmel Live. "People ask me about the whole day. They were like, 'Oh, it must have been so emotional.' I was like, 'It wasn't! It was sad!' I like being British." The Into the Woods star said the hardest part was renouncing allegiance to the queen, especially because she's still a British citizen as well as a new American one. To Americans upset about Blunt's lack of enthusiasm (and there are many on Twitter), she may have been punished enough already: THR reports Ellen DeGeneres had Blunt dress up as the Statue of Liberty on yesterday's show and sing "Yankee Doodle," only to be scared by a man in an Uncle Sam costume.
