British-born actress Emily Blunt apologized on Thursday for an "off-hand joke" that she regretted becoming an American citizen after watching the first GOP debate.

"It was so not the intention to hurt anybody or cause any offense, so I really apologize to those that I caused offense," Blunt told NBC's "Today" show. "I think I’ll probably leave the political jokes to late night or something."

Story continues below video.



Blunt said she actually enjoyed learning about American history while studying for her citizenship test and now knows more about American history than British history.

"It’s really meaningful," said Blunt, who is married to American actor John Krasinski."

"You know, I mean, my two favorite people in the world are American — my husband and my daughter. It was kind of a special day. Yeah, it was great!"
