She’s kissed many a heartthrob in her box office hits including Cillian Murphy, Matt Damon and most recently Ryan Gosling.

But Emily Blunt has revealed she wanted to be sick after smooching some of her co-stars.

Asked whether she ever “wanted to throw up” after kissing an actor, the actress replied: “Absolutely, absolutely ... I wouldn’t say it’s extreme loathing, but I’ve definitely not enjoyed some of it.”

Ms Blunt, 41, said that she has developed techniques for kissing co-stars she’s not attracted to and is well-versed in creating “chemistry”.

She told American radio host Howard Stern: “I think my feeling is I’ve got to find something I love about everybody. I have to find something — even if it’s one thing. It might be like they have a nice laugh or I like how they speak to people, they’re polite. I mean, it might be something random.

“But find something you love about that person or something you love about them as the character and then kind of lean into that.”

The Oscar-nominee, who is married to US actor John Krasinski, added: “I have had chemistry with people; I have not had a good time working with them ...

“Chemistry is this strange thing. It’s an ethereal thing that you can’t really bottle up and buy or sell. It’s there or it’s not. And you can manufacture it.

“I’ve been doing this long enough. I could have chemistry with this water bottle at this point. You know how to conjure it. But it’s just easier when you have a natural rapport with someone.”

But Ms Blunt reassured listeners that her connection with Gosling, who plays her love interest in new action movie The Fall Guy, was genuine.

She added: “I love his wife, Eva. I love their children, and I feel like I’m very lucky to be friends with a gem of a person like him.”
