Once celebrities have been photographed together in L.A., there’s no turning back. They’re dating. Officially. So it comes as a surprise that John Krasinski (Jim from “The Office”) and Emily Blunt (the English cutie from The Devil Wears Prada), two seemingly-down-to-earth, non-famewhore types would get caught out so soon into their relationship. I first heard the rumor of their romance just a few weeks ago… but here they are, publicly declaring their affection with a chaste closeness-of-hands.
We heard rumblings of a romance between John Krasinski and Emily Blunt a few weeks ago, and apparently the rumors are true. They stepped out Monday night for a movie date at the Arclight in LA, and it looks like John is putting a smile on Emily’s face already. Most of you picked Jim and Pam for Best TV romance of 2008, but we’ll have to wait and see if John’s new real-life relationship will be just as sweet.
John Krasinski is one of those guys that both mothers and daughters adore. My mother has taken to calling Krasinski “my future son-in-law” – of course, she said that about Matt Damon, and look how that turned out. Both Krasinski and Blunt have “dated famous” before – Krasinski had an on-and-off relationship with Rashida Jones (daughter of Quincy and former star of “The Office”) and Blunt dated singer (and another favorite of moms) Michael Buble for more than a year. I like the way these two look together, and I hope the relationship is for real. My mother’s going to be heartbroken, though.
