Emily Blunt & John Krasinski Open Up About Their First Date!

Emily Blunt & John Krasinski Open Up About Their First Date!

Emily Blunt and John Krasinski are on the cover of The Hollywood Reporter‘s 2018 Rulebreakers issue, out now.

Here’s what the married A Quiet Place couple had to say…

On John almost not asking Emily to be in A Quiet Place: “I decided the safest thing to do was just have this experience on my own. I didn’t want this to be the one job that she was like, ‘Listen, I don’t know if I love this, but I love you, so I’ll do it.’”

On who asked out who on their first date: “‘Probably me, I think,’ Blunt says. At this, Krasinski pivots from his wife to me, affecting the look of Jim deadpanning to the camera in the offices of Dunder Mifflin after someone has said something stupid. ‘Yeah, right,’ he counters. She insists: ‘I think it was me.’ ‘No,’ he fires back. ‘It was me asking for a while and you took some time, and then we finally had a date.’”

Emily, on deciding to take on the iconic role of Mary Poppins: “I was waddling around the house trying to figure out how she moved and spoke. What’s the point of playing Mary Poppins if you’re just going to try and do an impersonation of Julie Andrews? Friends of mine, they almost started to well up talking about her and what the film had meant to them, and that’s when I was like, ‘Oh, f–k. What have I done?’ I had no option but to Zen it out, because I’d taken this on.”
