London Customs Agent Couldn’t Believe John Krasinski Is Married to Emily Blunt


-We love having you here, buddy. You are actually now
officially a New Yorker. -I am! I moved back.
[ Cheers and applause ] Yes!
Yes. I love it. -It’s official.
-It is official. -Does it feel good?
Do you like being a New Yorker? -Oh, God, it feels so good. You walk outside and it just —
the world starts right away. For your kids, they have
breakfast and they go out, and within a block,
they’re, like, playing checkers in the park
or something like that. My kids are 42. -Oh, wow.
Congratulations on that. -Yeah, yeah, yeah. -Did you ever have a
“Welcome to New York” moment where you go,
“Well, that happened”? -Yeah.
Everybody does, right? I had mine
a long time ago actually. It was probably —
I’m ancient. It was like 20 years ago. I was an intern
right here at 30 Rock. -That’s right.
-Yeah, yeah. That’s all I wanted to say.
Thanks so much, everybody! -There he is, John Krasinski!
No, no, no. -And I was going out
to have lunch, and I was young,
and I was ignorant, so I was wearing
a Red Sox jersey. [ Audience groans, laughter ] -Ooh, boy.
-I still do. I’m still ignorant.
-All right. -I was wearing
a Nomar Garciaparra Jersey. -Nomar!
-Nomar! -Nomar!
Yeah. -I got out of the glass doors,
took a left, and I was walking along,
about to get lunch and just — Something hit me
in the back of the head. [ Laughter ] I was like, “Oh, my God.”
-Oh, no. -And it was a full
cream-cheese bagel. [ Laughter and applause ] And I looked over
to see who it was. It was a taxi
going like 20 miles an hour. [ Laughter ] And I couldn’t be mad. A guy who was like,
“Oh. There we go,” and just, like,
the trajectory to hit — He must’ve
been drafted after that. -Yeah, seriously,
that’s good aim right there. -It was really good. -How are the girls doing?
-Fantastic. -Yeah?
How old are they now? -You know what it’s like to have
two girls, two daughters. -It’s the best thing
in the world. -It is the best thing
in the world. It’s just tea parties,
hair bands — for me. It’s not them.
-No, yeah, exactly. It’s you,
and then they catch you. They go, “Daddy, can we play?” -Can I get in on that tea party?
-Yeah. Do you do tea parties
with the girls? -I do, yeah.
You know how everybody says, like, “Wow.
My kid’s really smart.” We’ve so tried to not do that, ’cause everybody goes,
“Every kid’s smart.” But I think my oldest daughter
is like a Jedi. And it’s like a manipulative,
negative Jedi, because, one day,
we were going over colors, and she goes —
This is early on. Like, she was 1 1/2
or something, and she goes, “Daddy,
what’s your favorite color?” And I said, “Blue.” And I knew her favorite color
was blue, and she went, “Oh.
Your favorite color is purple?” And I went, “No,
my favorite color is blue.” And she went, “Oh,
your favorite color’s purple. There’s purple.”
[ Laughter ] And I was like,
“That’s so weird.” And after two years now,
I’m like, “My favorite color — purple.” [ Laughter ] -It actually worked, though?
-It worked! I totally —
Now she hands me things, and very sadly,
like two weeks ago, She’s like, “Daddy,
your favorite color can blue.” And I went, “No,
my favorite color is purple.” [ Laughter ] I was still —
I was still locked in. She’s like, “Good, good!” -She’s making a block
levitate around the room. A teacup pours itself, yeah. -Yeah, exactly.
-And how’s your wife, the beautiful Emily Blunt?
-Fantastic. -We love Emily.
-Fantastic. [ Cheers and applause ] -That reaction means I married
up, and don’t I know it. Don’t I know it. -I wouldn’t say
you married up, no. -Oh, no, no, no. Please, they don’t
have to tell me. The customs agent in London did. [ Laughter ] I don’t know if you know,
Emily just shot a movie, it’s a small indie
called “Mary Poppins.” [ Laughter, cheers ] And I went to visit her
all the time. I was shooting something else,
but I went almost every weekend, and it was going great,
the customs, whole experiences, whatever. -You got to get through customs.
-Yeah, yeah, yeah. And then I hit this guy
who’s about my age, and he looked like he was ready
to get a little surly with me, and he said, “It says here
that you’re an actor.” And I said, “Yeah,”
and he said, “Would I know you
from anything?” I went, “You know, we redid
the UK version on ‘The Office.'” Strike one.
[ Laughter ] He’s like, “Oh.”
-“I hated that version!” -“Oh, you took
what we did perfect.” And then I said, “Yeah.” And he says,
“Who you visiting here?” I said, “My wife,” and he says,
“Is she an actress?” I said, “yeah.”
He said, “Would I know her?” I went, “I don’t know, man.
Her name’s Emily Blunt.” He goes like this, he goes,
“You?” [ Laughter and applause ] And I went, “Yeah.”
And he goes, “You? You married Emily Blunt?”
And I go, “Yeah.” And he goes like this,
“Okay, go. Just go.” Like, the stamp was so hard.
I was like, “I’m so sorry.” -Not breaking eye contact,
like, following you out.

  3. John is really talented I wish people didn’t think of him as just jim from the office, don’t get me wrong I love the office but he can’t be defined by one role

  4. Hey New York was just amazing. But the liberal policies have destroyed life for non millionaires. Crime is up and so is homelessness. Taxes are tripling and still we say New York is amazing. It was people. Unless you’re loaded your life is shit in NYC. Oh and the other boroughs are just as bad. Long Island is awful also. Just sad

  5. A quiet place was one of the best movies. They should do a second. Although I guess he died in the end so maybe not oh well. Lol

  6. He defiled a British National Treasure. He might as well have wiped his ass with pages of The Beowulf Manuscript.

  7. Married up. Yup.
    Like when Bruce Willis married Demi Moore. He said I was a star, now I'm the guy holding Demi's purse at press conferences.
    Both men seemed to find humor in their spouses star status.
