'The Five-Year Engagement' Star Emily Blunt Gives Relationship Advice: "Empower the Other One"
Sure, Emily Blunt stars in the new romantic comedy, The Five-Year Engagement, with Jason Segel and off-screen she's married to John Krasinski so it's no surprise she dished some relationship advice at a press conference for the movie.

She told reporters, as pointed out by Celebuzz, "Life is complicated and shake shifting all the time and you have to be willing to roll with the punches. The main thing that I find hard to learn as a British person is communication."
Emily also mentioned it's important to talk to each other and "you have to be forever generous." Instead of clipping each other's wings, she added, "You have to really empower the other one to be everything they can be."

It looks like she and John have been able to make their two-year marriage work in the pressure cooker of Hollywood. She explained, “Some kind of self-fulfillment is really important even if it means you have to spend some time apart and you make sacrifices in other ways. I think both people have to have some kind of purpose, some kind of identity. You don’t want to end up defining yourself by association with someone else.”
The Five-Year Engagement opens nationwide in theaters on Friday, April 27.
