Emily Blunt is messy

London: Actress Emily Blunt loves cooking but says it is a struggle to clean up afterwards because she is a messy person.

The 29-year-old actress, who is married to actor John Krasinski, relaxes away from work by cooking but said that she finds it impossible to indulge in her hobby without making a mess, reported Contactmusic.

"I love to cook - I`m a real foodie. The problem is that I`m also quite untidy, so when I do cook, it looks like a bomb has gone off in the kitchen. I`m trying to get better at being tidy and organised, but it is something I struggle with," Blunt said.

"The Young Victoria" star is now based in Los Angeles, and though she returns to the UK a lot, she said that she misses British pubs.

"There are parts that I miss, like afternoons in the pub, the irreverent sense of humour, and I do have a group of British friends in LA that I sort of cling to. But, like most actors, I`m used to a rather nomadic existence. And I still work in England an awful lot and my family are there, so I end up going back to visit a great deal," she added.
