The facts expressed in the article “No career stutters for stars who stammer” were spot on. Emily Blunt was correct in stating that many people who stutter face discrimination in the job market. Her own personal story of transformation from a stuttering kid into a famous actor is compelling. The website of The Stuttering Foundation has many in-depth profile articles of famous people who stutter, included many actors. In addition to Emily Blunt, there are articles on Marc Anthony, Sam Neill, Bruce Willis, Noel Gallagher, B.B. King, Dominick Dunne, Eric Roberts and many more. The story of Emily Blunt and all of these other famous people prove that people who stutter are much more than their stuttering.
