Dressed in luxe outfits of black and white, Emily Blunt looks gorgeous in the latest issue of Net-a-Porter's digital magazine, The Edit.
The 31-year-old British beauty, who posed in a Herve Leger crop top and Lanvin skirt for the Dec. 18 issue, got frank about two "industries" in her cover story: parenting and Hollywood.
“[Raising children] is such a fear-based industry,” Blunt, who gave birth to daughter Hazel in February, told the magazine. “There used to be one book that everyone read, now there’s How to Raise a Gluten-free Baby, How to Raise a Scientific Baby ... It’s insanity! So I haven’t read anything, I’m just letting her do her own thing.”
As for life as an actress, Blunt -- who is nominated for a 2015 Golden Globe for her role as the Baker's Wife in Rob Marshall's "Into the Woods" -- admitted it can be an affecting vocation, noting the deaths of Philip Seymour Hoffman and Robin Williams this year.
“This can be an industry that thrills and tortures people at the same time,” she explained. “And it depends on who you are as to what extreme that goes to. It’s such a loss that Phil [Seymour Hoffman] and Robin [Williams] aren’t here anymore. I think it is a job that can be very affecting. For me, my only experience I can speak of was in [the upcoming] 'Sicario,' with Benicio Del Toro and Josh Brolin. I remember doing one scene and I couldn’t sleep for four days after it. I was very affected by it and I’m a pretty even-keeled person, so I think if you aren’t naturally that way, this job can have a very big impact on you.”
