Gasp! John Krasinski just admitted that his low-key obsession with The Devil Wears Prada nearly ruined his relationship with Emily Blunt.
In a recent interview, Krasinski recalled the first time he hung out with Blunt and revealed that she stopped him before he could tell her how much he admired her work.
He said, “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.’ 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 Office star went on to say that it allowed them to get to know each other without focusing on the Hollywood curse. He added, “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.”
Krasinski and Blunt started dating in 2008 and tied the knot in 2010 in Lake Como, Italy. They are parents to two daughters, Hazel (4) and Violet (1).
Welp, we love this so much.
