Emily Blunt keeps grounded by doing her own dishes

Monday June 25, 2012

Emily Blunt has joked that she plans to stay grounded by always doing her own washing up.

The British actress has found fame in Hollywood in films such as The Devil Wears Prada, The Young Victoria and Salmon Fishing In The Yemen, but is determined to keep her feet firmly on the ground.

"I have great friends," she said. "And I think you'll always remain grounded if you wash the dishes every day and buy your own toilet paper."

Emily will next be seen in comedy The Five-Year Engagement and indie film Your Sister's Sister, and upcoming projects include the sci-fi war flick All You Need Is Kill alongside Tom Cruise, and futuristic thriller Looper, with Bruce Willis.

With such a busy schedule, she values her down-time with husband John Krasinski, star of the US version of The Office.

"At the moment I get chunks of time off, which we spend together," she said. "It's also nice to have a shared understanding of what each other does." 

The Five-Year Engagement is in cinemas now. Your Sister's Sister is released on Friday, June 29.
