Emily Blunt working out with kids

Emily Blunt

Emily Blunt is taking a gymnastics class with four-year-old children.

The British actress is preparing to film stunt scenes for her new movie All You Need Is Kill. In order to get in shape, Emily is participating in a class to learn some basic movements - and admits her skills are lacking.

"I'm going to my gymnastics club. It's me in a room with a bunch of four year olds running around, as I'm learning to do a cartwheel," she laughed to Total Film.

"It's full on. There's lots of wire work and weapons training."

In order to look convincing in the fight sequences for the action movie, Emily has also been mastering a form of self-defence. She claims her new skills have made her husband John Krasinski rather uncomfortable.

"I'm learning this martial art called Krav Manga. I think it is intimidating my husband."

All You Need Is Kill has shown a tougher side to Emily.

The 29-year-old star has joked that she may consider carving out a path as Hollywood's latest action hero.

"I don't know if I'm any Bruce Willis, I think I'll do this one and maybe mix it up again, I don't know if I can put myself through this again!" she laughed.

Horoscopes

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Leo:

Trust your intuition about a domestic matter. If you think it's time to get a new place, start looking for one. You could find a home that cultivates tranquillity and relaxation. Escaping the fray will be a relief. Although you enjoy socialising, you also crave private time. Being able to watch movies, read books and listen to music replenishes your batteries. A needy relative could request help. This would be a good time to establish some healthy boundaries. Stop dropping everything for this relative's benefit.More
