John Krasinski almost blew it with wife Emily Blunt. In an interview with Playboy magazine, The Office star admitted that his relationship was “saved” after the Devil Wears Prada actress stopped him from gushing over her career.
“I remember being at my house and saying to her, ‘So I just want to have this really honest conversation. I think you’re one of the best act’ — I didn’t even get out ‘actress’ [out],” John recalled. “She went, ‘No, no, no, no!’ Very loud. We didn’t have that conversation again for a really long time, and it saved our relationship.”
The funnyman explained that it allowed them to focus on each other outside of their Hollywood bubble.
“We got to have a very removed existence, because we just looked at it as though we were two people who had fallen in love, rather than two Hollywood celebrities who’d met each other,” John added.
The couple, who recently worked together for the first time on horror film A Quiet Place, started dating in 2008 and got married in 2010 in Lake Como, Italy. They’re now parents to daughters Hazel, 4, and Violet, 1.
