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."
