SHE is one of the most sought-after faces in Hollywood these days, but Emily Blunt has revealed that her career nearly took an unwanted path when she signed a recording contract and cut a demo in her last year at school.
"I got terrified and pulled out because I felt they were wanting me to be like Britney Spears," she said in an interview with The Sydney Morning Herald. "And I was like, 'I can't dance, and I don't sing like Britney Spears'. I just felt it was snowballing too fast and it wasn't ultimately what I wanted to do."Emily Blunt Talks Mary Poppins

While she might not have been destined to become a pop star, Blunt has put her musical prowess to good use in some recent roles - she sang in the film adaptation of Stephen Sondheim's Into The Woods in 2014 and will show off her vocals again in the title role in the much-anticipated Mary Poppins Returns, slated to hit screens next year.
