Normal Sister Emily Blunt

Emily Blunt doesn't want her family to "lay out the red carpet" at home.

The 'Wolfman' actress admits her loved ones are very proud of all she's achieved in her career, but would hate for them to treat her any differently because of her success.

She said: "There's an element of being really proud then an element of being mildly embarrassed because they know me as their sister. I've grown up with them squabbling over the Sunday roast.

"So, if they see me out there being admired, then they can see it's all a performance. They're very proud but I'm sure they roll their eyes about it too, sometimes. I certainly don't want anyone to lay out the red carpet when I get home."

'The Devil Wears Prada' star also admitted she sometimes feels like a bit of a fraud and finds it difficult to accept praise because she is never sure how long she will sustain her success.

She told Stylist magazine: "It's hard to accept the nice things that people say about you because I'm the one that has to live with the fear. I constantly feel like, 'oh my god, am I going to be able to do this?'

"If you buy into all of the hype then you're in trouble. Don't limit yourself. You always have to push yourself to do more and not settle for anything just because someone says something nice about you."
