John Krasinski Cried Watching Wife Emily Blunt in “Mary Poppins Returns”


Most men wouldn’t boast of the fact that they not only cried, but they couldn’t stop once they started. But for The Office alum John Krasinski, the fact that the tears fell so fast and so hard is actually a very good thing, considering it happened as a result of his wife’s performance in her new movie.

As fans know, Krasinski’s wife Emily Blunt plays the lead character in the much anticipated movie Mary Poppins Returns. Recently, Krasinski was able to take a moment and screen the movie for the first time.

“Twenty-five minutes into the movie, I stood up and I walked to the back of the room,” he said. “She said, ‘Oh my god, you’ve never done that before. Do you want me to stop the movie?’ and I was just in the back at the concessions table and I just said, ‘No I’m looking for napkins!” beacuse I needed anything to stop crying and to blow my nose, because I had blown through an entire box of tissues in 20 minutes.”

The movie is set for release on December 19.
