Emily Blunt has been quite busy — she'll be tearing up the big screen this year — but apparently she still had time to go house shopping. She and husband John Krasinski have spent $2.575 million for a home in Hollywood Hills West.
Built in 1965, the house sits on more than a third of an acre with a courtyard entry, stone patios, a lanai, a swimming pool and spa and a flat lawn. Within the 3,483 square feet of living space are a media/family room, an office, four bedrooms and four bathrooms.
Blunt, 31, will star in the upcoming films "Edge of Tomorrow" with Tom Cruise and "Into the Woods" with Johnny Depp. She starred in the 2012 films "Arthur Newman," "Looper" and "The Five-Year Engagement."

Jason Priestley, who made a name for himself playing Brandon Walsh on "Beverly Hills, 90210" in the 1990s, has sold a home in Toluca Lake for $2 million.
The Mediterranean-style house, reached by flagstone walkways, has arched windows and garage doors. Double doors open to an airy two-story foyer with a staircase in the 3,266-square-foot home, which was built in 1990 and has since been refurbished.
The house has living, dining and family rooms, a loft and a kitchen with an island and breakfast area. There are three bedrooms and four bathrooms. The master bedroom suite includes a stone fireplace and a wooden cathedral ceiling.
The less than a quarter of an acre lot holds a swimming pool, a spa and a covered patio.
Priestley, 44, has starred on the Canadian sitcom "Call Me Fitz" since 2010. His acting credits include the films "The Last Rites of Ransom Pride" (2010), "Love and Death on Long Island" (1997) and "Tombstone" (1993). He also has directed for television and the Web.
He bought the property in 2007 for $2.14 million.
Craig Strong of John Aaroe Group handled the transaction.
Where he can let guard down
Steve Nash of the Los Angeles Lakers bought a house in Manhattan Beach for $4.8 million.
Built in 1992, the three-bedroom, four-bathroom home has 4,175 square feet of living space. The long, narrow house features a two-story entry, an indoor waterfall and a three-stop dumbwaiter.
All that will soon be changing, however. The point guard plans to tear down the dated-looking house and build new.
Nash, 40, started with the Phoenix Suns in 1996 as a first-round draft pick. He moved on to the Dallas Mavericks and returned to the Suns before landing with the Lakers two years ago.
An apt free-throw and three-point shooter, he has received multiple Most Valuable Player and All-Star honors from the National Basketball Assn. Injuries sidelined Nash for much of the 2013-14 season.
