Emily Blunt and John Krasinski are one of Hollywood’s most famous and talented power couples. While Blunt’s career began with roles in films such as The Devil Wears Prada and Young Victoria, Krasinski rose to fame playing Jim Halpert on the long-running US version of the comedy series The Office. In a 2016 appearance on Larry King Now, Krasinski explained that he did his best to keep his cool when he was first introduced to Blunt. This meeting took place while Krasinski was dining with a friend of his at a restaurant. “I was incredibly nervous because I was a huge fan, and probably too huge a fan of ‘The Devil Wears Prada,'” Krasinski said. “So I tried to contain my excitement when I met [Blunt].”
After that encounter, the couple dated for almost two years before getting married in 2010, according to Brides. Krasinski loudly praised his wife’s extraordinary acting talent. “The air in the room changes when [Blunt] starting to do what she does,” Krasinski told Vanity Fair in 2018 about Harper’s Bazaar. “For me, I love acting and I’m so happy to do it. But she’s on a different plane.” Blunt has also expressed admiration for Krasinski’s influence as a cast member on The Office.
Emily Blunt has praised The Office
Emily Blunt has revealed she’s a huge fan of her husband John Krasinski’s The Office. In a 2018 interview on “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” Blunt described the first time she met Krasinski and said she wasn’t very familiar with his work at the time. “I was kind of aware that he was vaguely recognizable,” Blunt said. “But I was a big fan of the British ‘Office’.” However, after meeting Krasinski, Blunt took the time to watch the US version of the comedy series. “And then I looked at the American ‘Office’ and loved it,” she added.
For a 2018 cover story with Vanity Fair, Blunt went on to talk about how “The Office” helped her see the impact acting can have on an audience. “I always feel like I have a silly job to make a living. But occasionally you meet someone who deepens your sense of it,” Blunt said. “Sometimes people say they have cancer and ‘The Office’ was the only thing that made her family laugh at that time. Blunt and Krasinski have not only completed impressive projects individually, but have teamed up to create some memorable films together.

After the couple met and fell in love, Emily Blunt and John Krasinski have decided to work professionally in recent years. The couple, who have been married for over a decade and have two children together, first starred side by side in 2018’s A Quiet Place. The horror film later became a smash hit (via Rotten Tomatoes). Krasinski also co-wrote, directed and executive produced the film. When she and Krasinski spoke to Deadline in 2018, Blunt said she didn’t initially think she would take a lead role. After reading the script, Blunt changed her mind.
“I think all my protection ended because I realized that of all the projects we were sent to do together – and there were many – it would really benefit this film that we were in the real were married for life,” Stumpf said. The actor added that the “secret language” she and Krasinski shared ultimately served their on-screen performances. Her acting later earned Blunt a Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in 2019, per Metro. In 2020, the duo returned to their roles of Evelyn and Lee when they appeared in A Quiet Place 2. Krasinski also announced the third installment in February 2022 via the Hollywood Reporter. Fingers crossed that these two talented stars will perform together again!
