Emily Blunt Tells the Story of How She Met John Krasinski

100 Comments



-Your girls are 4 and 2?
-They are 4 and 2. -And, now, I’m assuming
they’re not gonna see this film, but have they seen you on film? And how do they react
when they see you? -My daughters, in general,
loathe to see me on-screen. -Uh-huh.
-In general, you know? I know, when I was
doing “Mary Poppins,” I’d even FaceTime my daughter,
and she’d be like, “Take that silly old
Mary Poppins wig off.” She was like,
“I like your blond hair.” -That’s lovely. -But, actually, we were having
a Super Bowl Party, and the trailer for
“Quiet Place” came on, which is terrifying. -Yeah. -And Hazel sort of wandered in
with a hot dog in hand. And she goes like this —
She goes, “Whoa.” That’s you, Mommy.” And I was like, “Yeah.” And then there was
a bit where I scream. I don’t know if
anyone’s seen the trailer, but I’m literally like [screams]
at the end of the trailer. And she — You could see
her brain exploding. But, instead,
she went, “Ha…cool.” And then, like, walked out
and never talked about it again. -Well, that’s the key
to parenting is — when a traumatic thing happens, just let them
deal on it on their own. -Listen, that’s how
I was raised. That’s like the British way.
-That’s the British way. They know something
painful’s happened to you. Give it 10 years. -Sweep it under the carpet.
Yeah. -Are you — You must be excited
for them to see “Mary Poppins.” -Well, they are in love with
Julie Andrews’ Mary Poppins. -Okay. And had they
been in love — I mean, I guess they’re not
old enough to have been in love with it for a long time,
but how long have they seen — -Well, I never
showed it to them during my shooting of the film, partly ’cause I just selfishly
didn’t want to be so distracted by how brilliant Julie Andrews
was in the role, already feeling that there was
this, like, iconic boulder that I had to, like,
move aside to play this part. -Were you worried that, like,
your kids will see this one and be like, “You’re our
second-favorite Mary Poppins”? -Oh, I’m not even on the list. They’re, like, creepy obsessed with Julie Andrews now, yeah. -That will be a terrifying
moment, then, for you. That will be scarier than
“A Quiet Place,” having to watch
your kids react to it. -Yeah, I just don’t even think
they should see “Mary Poppins.” Like, they should
never watch it. -This will be your third film
with Meryl Streep. -I know.
It’s like, “Get your own movie.” You know what I mean?
-Exactly. Thank you for saying that,
’cause I thought the same thing. -Stalker. Yeah, and we always play people
who sort of loathe each other in the films that we do. -Is there truth to the rumor
“The Devil Wears Prada” — There might be another
“Devil Wears Prada”? -I mean, I would love it.
-Yeah. [ Cheers and applause ] We all would. -Did you know Stanley Tucci
is my brother-in-law? -I did know that Stanley Tucci
was your Brother-in-Law. -He, like, wormed
his way into the family. -But he wasn’t during
the first “Devil Wears –” -No. So, we met on
the first movie. I’m talking about like
there is another movie. We met on the
first “Devil Wears Prada.” And I just loved him so much,
so he was at our wedding and then met my sister. -That’s unbelievable.
-I know. -And they’ve been married
for a while now, right? -They’ve been married —
I don’t even know how long. -Too long.
-Too long. Yeah. And when you met John, he was
already on “The Office,” yes? -He was, yeah. -And were you aware of
that show when you met him? -I was sort of aware that
he was vaguely recognizable, but I was a huge — -That’s so romantic.
-Yeah. It was like… “You look blurily familiar.” Yeah. But I was a big fan
of the British “Office.” -Uh-huh. That’s what the people on the
American “Office” love to hear. -Yeah, exactly. And then I sort of binge-watched the American “Office”
and loved it. -And how did you guys meet? -It’s, like,
kind of a sad, lame story. You know, not sad,
but it’s just kind of lame. I mean, I was in a restaurant.
He was in the restaurant. I was sitting with
a mutual friend. This is our romantic comedy.
This is it. Write it! -This is Paul and Meredith. -And my friend Gray goes,
“Oh, my God. There’s my friend John.”
And that was it. -Oh, really?
-Yeah. -And he came over to the table? -Guys, it’s golden.
It’s cinema gold. -It is really good. Did he — I’m sorry to ask
for the logistics to this. Did he then come over and
eat his meal with you? -No. He was actually sitting
with our friend Justin Theroux. -Okay. -And then he abandoned Justin and came over to come
and talk to us. He did not eat. He just stood there
and made me laugh. Yeah. -There you go.
And it’s worked out. -He just did a bit. -And all these years later…
And did you know right away? I’m sorry to dig in here.
-I kind of did. -Yeah.
-Yeah. -That’s good.
-Am I speaking to “Us Weekly”? I love you. I’m sorry. -I just want to make it clear
that you guys, as stars, are just like us. -I know.
I am just like you guys. Yeah.
-But I’m so happy. -It really is — I mean,
for waiting to see you guys work together, I never would
have predicted this film. And it just so wonderful
that you guys did it. -It’s so disturbing. -Yeah, it’s really disturbing,
but it’s really great. -It’s so good.
I’m thrilled you love it. It’s sort of been
overwhelming, actually, ’cause we were really nervous
to work together, and terrified —
John, in general, was sort of terrified of, like,
how people will view this film or whether they’ll accept it. And people have just been
incredible about it. They just love it.
-Well, they’re right. It’s really wonderful. And thank you so much
for being here. It’s just a delight to have you.
-Hey, anytime.

    Narration:
    Emily thought that day would be like any other day when she walked into the resturant with her friend, Greg.
    John was already there with his friend Justin Theroux.
    Greg: oh my god, there's my friend John.
    When John walked over to Greg's table, he never wouldv'e thought his life is going to change forever.
