John Krasinski Hid His ‘Devil Wears Prada’ Obsession From Wife Emily Blunt
If shame has stopped you from copping to a million viewings of The Devil Wears Prada, consider John Krasinski — who's married to one of its stars — your ally in indignity.
The 2006 comedy, which stars Emily Blunt as the assistant to an Anna Wintour-type fashion editor, made an instant superfan out of Krasinski. Nowadays, he feels free to relish his obsession in front of Blunt (whom he began dating in 2008) but he told E! News that in the early days of the couple's relationship, he wouldn't dare expose his true fandom.
"We had just started dating and she had come over to my house," he recalled. "She popped by in between some things and I was watching it. She opened the door and I flipped the channel and she looked at me like, 'Were you just watching porn?' I think it was better for me at the time for her to think I was watching porn than watching The Devil Wears Prada for the seventy-fifth time."
A full calendar year later, Krasinski came clean about his addiction.
"There was one day when it was on and I said it was so good and Emily said, 'Have you seen this movie?'" he said. "I said, 'A lot of times.' She said, 'That's so sweet, but how many times?' Luckily, we had been dating for about a year so there was a lot of trust built up and I said, 'Like 75.'"
