John Krasinski's Daughters Don't Know He's An Actor & Think Emily Blunt Married Him For 'Charity'

John Krasinski is revealing that his daughters actually don’t know what he does for a living.

In a recent interview on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, the 43-year-old Jack Ryan star talked about how a recent run-in with a fan confused one of his daughters, who he shares with Emily Blunt.

John explained that the fan run-in has daughters Hazel, 8, and Violet, 6, thinking he works in an actual office.

“The reason I think that is because I was walking them to school one day, and this guy came up, and he was very nice, he went, ‘John! From The Office!,’” he shared. “I went ‘Yeah,’ and he said, ‘Oh my god, it’s so good to see you,’ and I said, ‘Thanks’ and he kept walking.”

After that, one of the girls had asked, “‘So, you work with him?’ I went, ‘No.’ And she goes, ‘Why are you lying to me?’ I went, ‘I’m not lying to you.’ She goes, ‘No, he just said he knows you from the office.’”

John revealed that while Hazel and Violet have seen a few episodes of the show, they still just think he works in an office.

“My 6-year-old kept asking, ‘Is that you?’” he said. “And she says, ‘You look very different.’ I was like, ‘I’ll try not to take that as a hurtful thing,’ but sure, I say, ‘No, that’s me, I was just playing a character, and she went ‘Pfff, that’s not you.’ Then we watched two more episodes, and she goes, ‘That’s not you. That guy looks a lot like you though!’”

John added that his daughters do know that Emily is an actress, and joked that they think “she had married me out of charity, like, ‘You’re so nice to marry an accountant’ because they don’t know what I do.”
