Actor John Krasinski was blown away by wife Emily Blunt’s performance in A Quiet Place, a film he co-wrote and directed. “I’ve always been [her] biggest fan, but not until you’re in the room when she does what she does do you know why she’s so phenomenal,” he raved. “She’s unbelievable!”
The couple — who will celebrate eight years of marriage in July — admitted they were a little cautious of co-starring in the hit horror film together, but they’re thrilled with the results. “Everyone was like, ‘You’re gonna be divorced by the end,'” Emily, 35, joked, “[but] actually, we’re closer.” John, 38, added of his on-and-offscreen leading lady, “It’s the best collaboration I’ll ever have.”
John and Emily are also are parents to two daughters, Hazel, 4, and Violet, 1, together, “She makes everyone around her better,” John has said.
And Emily feels the same about her hubby. “Meeting John really changed my life,” Emily gushed. “When I feel the support that I have from him, I feel invincible.”
In a recent interview, John told the cute story of how he fell in love with The Devil Wears Prada star (he’s seen the movie 72 times, by the way). “When we first met, I was like, ‘I just want to get it out of the way — I’m a huge fan of yours,'” John remembered on The Graham Norton Show. “I was full stalker-status. I was like, ‘Hey, you want to go out on a date with me?'”
And Emily’s story is just as adorable. She was out at a restaurant with a friend when The Office star walked in. “We were discussing how much I was enjoying being single. And then [my friend] goes, ‘Oh, my God, there’s my friend John.’ And that was it,” Emily recalled during a recent episode of The Jess Cagle Interview . “We were engaged within 10 months, but I think we probably knew before that.” Here’s to many more years of happiness for the couple!
