Emily Blunt: Motherhood has changed me

EMILY Blunt says motherhood has changed her.

The 'Devil Wears Prada' star insists she is more selective of what film roles she takes on since giving birth to two-year-old daughter Hazel, who she has with husband John Krasinski.

She said: "Too racy would be one thing I wouldn't go for now. I'm not so keen on doing nudity, because I'm not 22 any more. And actually it's not so much a moral thing as 'I've done it before and do I really want to do it again?'

"Does it serve the film or is it gratuitous and seeing someone's t**s for the sake of it? Because I don't think it's necessary most of the time. Also playing violent or racist characters would be hard for me now.'"

The 33-year-old actress used to find it hard to be away from her little girl but has learned to deal with it better because she's "in love" with her job.

She added to The Telegraph newspaper: "I feel so completely fulfilled. I'm in love with this job so I come home enlivened and emboldened by the work I've just done.

"And although life is a juggle and I have to spend a few days away from Hazel here and there, when I'm not working I'm with her all the time. I do think it will get harder to leave her as she gets older, but a friend once gave me a good piece of advice. Instead of saying, 'Mummy has to go,' I say, 'Mummy has to go, but I love what I do. I just love it!'"
