Emily Blunt recently made headlines when she announced that she would be taking a break from acting to spend more time with her family. However, the actress wants to clarify that this break is not a permanent departure from Hollywood.
In a recent interview with Deadline, Blunt addressed the rumors and explained that her break has been blown out of proportion. She stated, ‘Honestly, that story got so sort of overblown. I’m just taking a little downtime, I’m not quitting Hollywood. I was just taking some months off to be with the kids.’
Blunt shares two daughters, Hazel and Violet, with her husband of 13 years, John Krasinski. She emphasized the importance of being present for her children during their formative years, stating, ‘There are cornerstones to their day that are so important when they’re little. And it’s, ‘Will you wake me up? Will you take me to school? Will you pick me up? Will you put me to bed?’ And I just need to be there for all of them for a good stretch. And I just felt that in my bones.’
Blunt’s decision to take a break from acting is not uncommon among celebrities. Many A-list actors have taken temporary hiatuses to prioritize their personal lives and recharge. Tom Holland and Chris Hemsworth are just a few examples of actors who have recently taken breaks from their busy schedules.
While Blunt is taking a break from acting, she is not completely stepping away from the industry. She has several projects in post-production that will be released in the next two years. Fans can look forward to seeing her in the highly anticipated film ‘Oppenheimer’ and the film adaptation of the hit TV series ‘The Fall Guy.’
Blunt’s dedication to her family is evident in her decision to prioritize her children’s well-being. She wants to be present for all the important moments in their lives and ensure that they have a stable and nurturing environment. While she may be taking a break from Hollywood, it is clear that her passion for acting and her talent will continue to shine in the future.
