NEW YORK—Claiming it would be totally fine by them, the nation’s girlfriends assured reporters Tuesday that if a new BBC miniseries remake of Emma starring Jon Hamm and Emily Blunt somehow got thrown their way, there would be no complaints from them. “All we’re saying is, if they decided to film a classic tale of tangled romance set in Regency England starring those two actors, by all means,” said Denver-area girlfriend Eva Mazula, who added that tossing in a little Ryan Gosling as Mr. Elton wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world, either. “And certainly don’t hold back, on our account, on squeezing in a scene where two characters in gorgeous period costumes exchange furtive glances across a ballroom while Judi Dench talks about her daughter’s dowry. Honestly, feel free.” A spokesperson for the nation’s girlfriends confirmed that none of them would put up a fight should a back rub occur during one of the film’s commercial breaks.
