It seems that love at first sight is certainly still very much a thing, even in Hollywood. Actress Emily Blunt recalled meeting her husband, John Krasinski for the first time and immediately knowing “that was it!”
Blunt had been talking to a friend of hers about how much she enjoyed being single and her friend interrupted her when she noticed Krasinski who was a friend of hers.
Blunt says she knew “disarmingly soon” that Krasinski was the one for her.
It turns out that he had similar notions before the two even officially met. He admits that he had a huge crush on her before they even formally met.
After meeting they began dating right away and after just 10 months, they were engaged.
The couple has been married for seven years and have two daughters together.
Their relationship experienced some uncharted territory recently when Blunt was directed by Krasinski in the new film A Quiet Place.
Blunt admits that this role was the most personal one she’d ever taken on. She revealed that typically there is a huge divide between the characters that she plays and herself.
With this film, that wasn’t really the case.
The two play a married couple in the horror film where they attempt to keep their kids and each other safe from a villain that hunts based on sound.
The two had a bit of trepidation regarding working together only because of their personal relationship and the wondering assumption if they’d be able to act, direct and be directed by and alongside their spouse.
It went off without a hitch and the film has been doing amazingly at the box office.
Krasinski is often asked what it’s like to be married to such a bonafide movie star. He continually jokes about hitting the jackpot in that way.
Even recently at the airport, an attendant didn’t believe that the two were married and told Krasinski what a lucky guy he is.
With both of their stars rising after the success of this film, more and more people will likely believe they’re a Hollywood match made in heaven.
