Critics are hailing Blunt and the former Office star as the golden couple of this year’s award cycle. Even as celebrity couples like Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan or Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux break up, the A Quiet Place stars remain each other’s biggest fan.
On the Ellen DeGeneres Show, Krasinski would say it was love at first sight when he saw Blunt. “I met her and I was so nervous. I was like, ‘Oh god, I think I’m going to fall in love with her.’ As I shook her hand I went, ‘I like you.'” When he saw Mary Poppins Returns, he told DeGeneres that he lost control of his emotions. “I was pushing through all the bagels and muffins that were in the back looking for napkins. I was like, ‘I need anything to stop this crying!’ I was crying so much! I blew through the tissue box in 20 minutes,” he said. “I had to go to the napkins, and then when I ran out of the napkins, it was all sweater.”
The couple will attend this year’s Golden Globes together on Sunday. Blunt is up for best-supporting actress in a musical or comedy. As for Krasinski, he’s currently working on a sequel to A Quiet Place.
