Emily Blunt has joked that it takes three hours of hair and make-up to get her "looking real" now she's a mother.

Emily Blunt lactated on designer clothes she was modelling for a magazine photoshoot.

The British star and her actor husband John Krasinski welcomed daughter Violet in June (16), a sister for two-year-old Hazel.

While the 33-year-old is now busy promoting her new film The Girl on the Train, she admits to British Vogue magazine in a new interview that juggling family life with work commitments isn’t always easy.

“It took three hours of hair and make-up to get me looking this real!” she laughed to the fashion publication. “Earlier I started to lactate on these designer clothes and I was like, ‘I need to go and pump!’”

Emily stars on the cover of the magazine’s November “Real Issue”, in which none of the fashion is shot on models. Photographed by Josh Olins, the actress poses with her hands on her hips in a beautiful black dress covered in printed white tulips and tied at the waist with a black gem-encrusted belt.

In the accompanying editorial, the Sicario actress also spoke candidly about her reputation for playing relatable women in films, and the challenges she experienced in playing a depressed alcoholic, Rachel Watson, in movie The Girl on the Train, based on a bestselling novel by Paula Hawkins. But while Emily feels she’s been lucky to have been able to tell the stories of such strong women throughout her career, she feels there’s still a lack of powerful female roles in Hollywood.

"There’s such a shortage that when they do arise there’s a bit of a feeding frenzy among my peers," she shared. "It’s a very good thing that we keep talking about the issue. It’s a conversation that needs to continue. Although I would prefer that we actually go in a direction of producing and creating more jobs for women in the film industry as opposed to talking about it."
