Emily Blunt working out with kids

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.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Capricorn:

It feels like friends are few and far between. If you're not getting the help you need, ask why. It may be because you have been so preoccupied with work. Skipping special occasions and failing to return phone calls causes resentment. You have to be more engaged to sustain loving bonds. Call someone you've missed. It may take a few tries, but it's worth the effort. Be forthright about why you have been out of touch. Communication is the cornerstone of every healthy relationship.More
