EMILY BLUNT has been filmed attempting to pour a pint of Guinness in a Co Mayo pub this week and, from the looks of it, her bartending skills need some work.
Blunt is currently over in Ireland filming her new film Wild Mountain Thyme alongside Jamie Dornan, Jon Hamm and Christopher Walken.
With filming taking place at Crossmolina, Co Mayo, Blunt and her co-stars have been busy rubbing shoulders with some of the locals.
For Blunt that included a trip to a traditional Irish pub, where she posed for photos and even turned her hand to a spot of pint-pulling.

Unfortunately, her efforts left a little to be desired, bringing to mind Eric Trump’s infamously awful attempt during a recent visit to the family’s Doonbeg golf and hotel resort.
In something of a rite of passage, Donald Trump’s son earned negative reviews for his attempt, which was mostly head and very little of the actual black stuff.
It was a bafflingly bad attempt and one that earned him plenty of guffaws among those of us with an intimate knowledge of Guinness.

Blunt and the younger Trump aren’t the only big names to try their hand at a bit of Guinness pint-pouring though.
Former President Barack Obama and Meghan Markle were previously snapped pulling pints in Ireland with considerably more success.
Unfortunately, both are a little to busy to put their pint-pulling skills to good use.
Blunt may want to just leave it to the professionals.
