Emily Blunt Jokes Her Kids Will Be 'Traumatized' If They Watch Any of Her Movies (Exclusive)

By

Emily Blunt admits it's tricky for her daughters to see their mom on-screen.

ET spoke to the 35-year-old actress on Wednesday about her new film, Sherlock Gnomes, when she talked about hoping to make films her two daughters with husband John Krasinski -- 4-year-old Hazel and 1-year-old Violet -- will be able to see.

"I inevitably would like to have aimed stuff that I'm doing now with them in mind," she tells ET's Carly Steel. "Other than the film that I have coming out with my husband [horror film A Quiet Place], which they shouldn't see until they are 40. But yes, maybe it is a subconscious thing .... I'm sort of drawn to doing projects that I know that they hopefully would one day watch."

Blunt shares that at her kids' current ages, they actually don't like watching her in movies.

"Neither of them want to see me on screen at the moment because they are just traumatized by the idea that I'm not quite theirs," she explains. "I think it is an odd thing. Yeah, it is a strange thing if it is your child watching you."

Blunt's new film, Sherlock Gnomes, has she and co-star James McAvoy reprising their roles as garden gnomes Juliet and Gnomeo from their 2011 hit Gnomeo & Juliet, this time, recruiting renowned detective Sherlock Gnomes to investigate the mysterious disappearance of other garden ornaments. In the film, Gnomeo is the more romantic one, while Juliet is more work-obsessed. Blunt says in real-life, Krasinski is also the more romantic of the two.

"He is a kind of the all or nothing type," she says of former Office star. "He puts me under pressure because he does such fabulous sort of surprises and gifts that I just feel mine are, like, 'I got you a shirt.'"

Sherlock Gnomes hits theaters on Friday.

ET also talked to Blunt about the highly anticipated Mary Poppins Returns, and she admitted filming the iconic flying scene was "terrifying."
