If it were up to their fans, Hollywood actors Emily Blunt and husband John Krasinski wouldn't be a couple. Even though the series that made Krasinski famous ended ten years ago, »The Office« fans are still attached to the relationship between his character, Jim, and his great love Pam, played by Jenna Fischer.
Blunt ("Oppenheimer") told a podcast of the US magazine "Variety" that fans of the US sitcom still prefer to see her husband with his colleague from the series. Do you know how many people still shout 'I wish you were with Pam' when I walk next to him?" the 40-year-old asked her interviewee in the podcast. From 2005 to 2013, Krasinski played Jim, an office worker who gets together with his colleague Pam, in the comedy series »The Office«.
Long after the series finale, fans continued to ask her and her husband in public, "Where's Pam?" Blunt said. And I say, 'She's not here!'" But Pam actress Jenna Fischer is one of her "dearest friends," Blunt said. We love Jenna."
Fischer has been married to actor and director Kirk Lee since 2010. Blunt and Krasinski have also been married for thirteen years and have two daughters; Hazel and Violet were born in 2014 and 2016.
Just recently, Blunt announced that she wants to take a little time off from work to spend more time with her children. She has not always been able to reconcile career and children well, the actress said in the podcast "Table for Two" . When people ask me how to balance, I always think I'm not doing it right." She now wants to change that. "There are so many milestones in their lives that are so important when they're little," Blunt said. "I need to be there for her for a while."
