Emily Blunt plans to indulge her taste for fattening foods over Christmas.

The British actress has been looking forward to the festive period for months because she plans to ditch her healthy eating plan and treat herself to some calorific treats.

She said: "I'm going to eat as much as I want and get off this diet I've been on!"

Emily has been monitoring her calorie intake for months while filming her latest movie, 'The Adjustment Bureau', in which she portrays a slender ballet dancer Elise Sellas.

The 26-year-old actress stars alongside Matt Damon in the sci-fi thriller about an affair between the dancer and a politician, who are kept apart by mysterious forces.

Emily has trained hard to lose weight for the role, and even went to a "dance boot camp" to tone up and pick up dance tips.

She recently said: "I'm going to dance boot camp. I'll never be at the same standard as a professional, but hopefully I'll be able to do a little bit. I didn't do ballet when I was a child. I gave it up in some sort of bratty rage, claiming it hurt my feet."

'The Adjustment Bureau' is due for release next year.
