British actress has defended her decision to swap independent movies for big budget blockbusters - insisting she doesn't need to "atone" for her career choices. After a supporting role in hit fashion film "", Blunt has made her name with a string of smaller films, including "", "" and "".

She's now set to hit cinemas with blockbusters including "" and "", but insists she's not chasing big money movies. Blunt says, "I knew what I was signing up for. Really I did. People were, like, 'Why have you strayed away from independent films?'. I thought, 'Give us a break! I've hardly done anything but independent films.'"
