"He said, 'Would I know her?' And I said, 'I don't know man, her name's Emily Blunt.'" Apparently, the agent was shocked by the news, and immediately dismissed Krasinski in frustration!
The actor told Jimmy Fallon on "The Tonight Show" Tuesday that while Blunt - with whom Krasinski has two children - was filming "Mary Poppins", he flew to London numerous times to visit her.
It's no surprise that protecting family seems to be at the forefront of The Office US star's mind. Not only has he had bagels thrown at him in NY, but he also gets stick from random customs agent who refuse to believe he's married to Emily Blunt.
The Office actor recently sat down for an interview with Vulture to discuss the film, in which he and wife Emily Blunt star. "Would I know you from anything?' And I went, "You know, we redid the United Kingdom version of 'The Office"," Krasinski told Fallon.
The actors have their new horror movie, A Quiet Place, debuting this week where the pair were asked about tackling Fantastic Four. "If someone laughs, that's up to them, you just deliver the truth of the moment, and I applied it here".
The actor is now promoting his new horror film A Quiet Place, which he co-wrote and directed, and features himself and Emily, 35, in the central roles. But it was sort of daunting to take it on because we've never worked together before. To be honest, when I signed "I loveyou" to her in the movie, it was because of her. "You just want to protect them at all costs".
Although Krasinski was "anxious" about using minimal dialogue, he soon realized it complemented the film's vibe: "Her gestures were so much more cinematic than saying the words would've been".
