When she was a teenager, Dame Judi Dench took her under her wing. A decade later, she's the toast of Hollywood – and married to actor John Krasinski. Life would be perfect, she says, if it hadn't made her so superstitious

Emily Blunt is describing her Ocd with a humorous wryness. "It's very weird. It's only happened in this past year. I've started getting very superstitious and fixating on things.

"And my dad would be like: 'What are you doing?' And I'd go, 'Sorry, I can't…" she clucks, "…stop."

She rolls her eyes and laughs drily. »
