Emily Blunt has a ''complicated'' relationship with Los Angeles.

The actress - who has 20-month-old daughter Hazel with husband John Krasinski - currently lives in Los Angeles with her family, but has mixed feelings about the American city.

She said: ''It's complicated. I love so much about LA and I hate a lot about it too.

''I hate that it's a one-industry town and that the quest for success emanates from every corner of it. It can be suffocating in some ways.

''But I love my friends there, I love the weather and it's a very easy place to raise a child.

''A lot of time we lie outside of LA in the countryside, in a place called Ojai, which is lovely and offers more respite than the city.''

Meanwhile, the actress also revealed being a mother has changed her life in dramatic fashion.

Emily, who stars in the movie 'Sicario', told Radio Times: ''It changes you infinitely in a rather overwhelming way.

''The best way I can describe it is that it's like this lovely distraction that I always have. It's always there and I love that feeling.''
