After admitting she's "never bloody danced before," Blunt spends six weeks training for her role as a ballet dancer opposite Matt Damon in the action-thriller The Adjustment Bureau. "It was actually an extraordinary experience, because I don't think I've ever had to do something that frightened me to that degree, day in and day out," she said. "I had to combat those fears of excruciating embarrassment that I couldn't do these moves."
Blunt tickles her funny bone alongside Jason Segel in The Five-Year Engagement, a romantic comedy about a couple's delayed journey to wedded bliss. "I was surrounded by the funniest people in the world," Blunt tells EW. "It's very funny, it's bawdy and there's a hint of the grotesque but it's got a lot of heart."
A rep for Blunt confirms she and husband John Krasinski, who wed in 2010, will welcome their first child in a few months. "Meeting John really changed my life," she told InStyle in April. "When I feel the support I have from him, I feel invincible. There's someone behind you on your good days, and someone in front of you on your bad days."
Krasinski takes to Twitter to announce the birth of the couple's daughter, Hazel. "Wanted to let the news out directly. Emily and I are so incredibly happy to welcome our daughter Hazel into the world today!" he writes. "Happy bday!"
