Film fans may fear Emily Blunt will be off screens for the entirety of 2024 after she revealed she was taking a year off to spend more time with her family.
The 40-year-old British actress is married to American actor, writer and director John Krasinski, 44, and together they are the proud parents of daughters Hazel, nine, and Violet, seven. And while Emily said she’ll be taking a year off to spend more time with her girls, she’ll still be appearing in theaters throughout 2024.

Both films will be released in May, and Emily is poised for awards success as she is nominated for a Golden Globe, Critics’ Choice, Satellite and Saturn Award for her role as Katherine “Kitty” Oppenheimer in Oppenheimer; Nominations for the Oscars, Baftas and Emmys are expected to be announced in the coming months.
Last year, while promoting Oppenheimer, Emily explained why she stepped away from the world of acting as she found it difficult to balance acting and parenting. She told the Table For Two podcast: “It’s one of those things where people ask, ‘How do you balance it?’ You know, I never feel like I’m doing everything right.
“I worked quite a lot last year and my oldest child is nine, so our last year is in the single digits. And I just feel (as if) there are cornerstones to their day that are so important when they’re little. And this: “Are you going to 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 around all of them to have a good time. And I just felt it in my bones. I had a great time on the projects I worked on last year. Some were more intense than others, some were harder than others. Some took longer than others.
“The ones that take a lot of time, I think for me, they become fewer and farther apart because of the emotional toll it takes on me, the kids, in general. And I am very prone to feeling guilty, I think all mothers are prone to this. “I just tend to feel bad that, God forbid, I want something other than motherhood.”
Emily and John have been praised in Hollywood for their parenting skills in the past, with a source telling Us Weekly back in 2018: “Their careers may be busy, but they have a great family life… Most of the time, they’re just normal parents taking their kids on days out.” birth and games. On weekends they all have lunch and play in the park.”
The couple also opened up about their approach to parenting and their love for their two daughters. In May 2021, Emily told the Sunday Times: “I don’t want my children to feel more important or special or to be looked at more than other children. If they can stay in the dark as long as possible, I’ll be thrilled. They don’t even want to see what I do. They don’t even like it when I wear makeup. They don’t like it! They just want me to be their mom.”
Emily has previously discussed her children’s accent changes when she and John moved from the UK to the US. Appearing on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon in 2016, Emily said: “Hazel had my accent for a very long time and she said things like ‘water’, which I was very proud of… (but) the other day (she switched dictation). I was like, “No!”
However, an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! In 2020, the actress explained that the girls’ accents changed after they moved to the UK and attended a British school. She said: “They actually went to a real school in school uniforms… Miraculously, they sound quite British, which I’m absolutely delighted with.”
