Here’s another example of why Emily Blunt and John Krasinski are what you would call “relationship goals”:
In early July, ahead of the SAG-AFRA strike, the British actress participated in a press tour for the new film Oppenheimer. Her co-star Robert Downey Jr. documented it all while the cast attended photo ops in Paris, and Emily brought along John for the ride.
But unless fans paid close attention, they likely missed the funniest documented moment of all: In an Instagram clip of Emily and Robert chatting, John pops up behind them and mischievously smiles at the camera. Not wanting to stop her conversation, Emily proceeds to place her hand on her husband’s head and push him down to the ground and away from her activity.
While many didn’t necessarily catch the unexpected snafu, E! News saw it and immediately shared it on TikTok. “Emily Blunt is sending her husband John Krasinski to a quiet place for interrupting her chat with Robert Downey Jr. 🤫,” read the cheeky caption on July 14, referencing the couple’s hit A Quiet Place franchise.
Given how Emily and John often cause a tiny bit of chaos online, folks couldn’t contain their laughter. “I mean I feel like John is the all-time best troll,” one person wrote on TikTok. “she’s 100% had to do that to him in real life at some point,” another cracked up. “You don’t interrupt someone when they’re talking to Iron Man!” a different fan exclaimed, referencing Robert’s iconic Marvel character.
Despite the Devil Wears Prada star teasing The Office alum at his expense, she has John to thank for helping her get the role in the Christopher Nolan-directed film as Katherine “Kitty” Oppenheimer. As she explained to E! News, John ran into Christopher in an elevator while the director was seeing Matt Damon about being in the movie.
“[Christopher] bumped into John in the elevator,” she told the outlet. “And he said, ‘I was about to come to you for the part, but I didn’t want it to be offensive … Oh, by the way, while you’re here, give this to your wife.'”
Lol, these two.
