Emily Blunt Tells the Story of How She Met John Krasinski


-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.

  1. I really love Emily Blunt but when I see her and John together I feel like he is betraying Pam bc JIM AND PAM SHOULD BE TOGETHER

  2. So all you need to do is find friends who have attractive friends and then you just need to make them laugh. Seems easy enough.

  3. 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.
    Emily thought: THIS IS IT

    Though how lame this writing is… but just make a movie people! 😊😍

  5. Shes so cute and hot. I restrain myself because I like John too. What a cute couple. I've loved her for a while. Wild hunt was great. Edge of tomorrow is awsome. Full metal cutie!

  6. I think she should have been captain marvel instead of Brie Larson. Nothing against her, I think Emily would have been pretty good though

  7. So she was a receptionist at this company where John also worked. But Emily was already engaged to another man. John confessed his love to her and she Called off her engagement to marry John.

    Oh wait. That’s something different
