Emily Blunt has admitted learning ballet was the toughest thing she has had to do.
The Wild Target actress – who had “never danced” – had to study it for her new film, The Adjustment Bureau, where she plays a ballet dancer who falls in love with a congressman, played by Matt Damon.
“It was really tough, the hardest and scariest thing I’ve ever had to do – I was in boot camp for a long time,” she told Total Film.
Emily was thrilled to star alongside Matt.
“It’s a real experience; I’ve admired (him) for so long,” she said.“The magic of the job is the camaraderie that you have on those film sets and the accelerated friendships.”
While the 27-year-old openly talks about her ballet experiences, she is more tight-lipped about the film’s plot, which is loosely based on Philip K Dick’s short story Adjustment Team.
“Like all of Philip’s work, it’s about creeping under people’s paranoia,” she added.
