The actor started spending time with Felicity Blunt, a literary agent and Emily Blunt’s sister, around 2010. As a story has it, they were first introduced to each other at the premiere of The Devil Wears Prada in 2006. They reconnected once again in July 2010, at Emily and John Krasinski’s wedding. The ceremony was held at George Clooney’s house in Lake Como, Italy.
“After Kate died, I saw [Felicity] at her sister Emily’s wedding. I went to England to do a movie, and then we started dating,” Stanley told The Guardian in 2017.
“We started eating out a lot, and then she came and stayed with me in America, and we started cooking together, and it was great,” Stanley said on The Queen Latifah Show in 2013.
Stanley proposed during a romantic getaway to Berlin, Germany, in 2011. But the beautiful experience came with unexpected downsides.
“I panicked instantly afterward,” Stanley told The Times in 2015, per ABC News. “It was very hard to go on vacations at first, really hard to go with Felicity someplace. I felt guilty. It’s horrible.”
Stanley and Felicity overcame the initial obstacles together. They tied the knot in 2012 in London.
