Emily Blunt has revealed the challenges of acting in front of a green screen.

The British star found out how difficult it is to act with CGI (computer generated imagery) on Gulliver's Travels, in which she stars opposite Jack Black and Jason Segel.

"[It is] hell, I find it really tedious and confusing - you're like begging a tennis ball on a pole for help and crying!" she told Access Hollywood.

"I think that's [the moment] when you're like, 'Oh wow. This takes a lot of imagination!'," she added.

While the green screen may have been a nightmare for Emily, working with her co-stars was completely the opposite.

"Heaven - they're so much fun," she continued.

"I mean, they're too much fun! It almost ruins you for other actors, you know? They're really delightful and sweet, and it was just like a comedy fest on that set."

:: Gulliver's Travels opens in cinemas on Boxing Day (December 26).

It's time to put plans into action. Don't wait for anyone's permission. Just move forward as if you've been given the green light. Before long, others will recognise the merit of this idea and lend their support. It will be especially helpful to get the approval of an educational leader. Making resources more readily available to the public is a worthwhile mission. You especially enjoy seeing children benefit from your hard work. Thanks to you, they'll have better opportunities for advancement.More
