Is John Krasinski cheating on Emily Blunt with Lake Bell?

John Krasinski is the guy every mother wants her daughter to bring home. He’s got his pick of all of the “nice” girls in Hollywood and beyond, but I’m struggling to see his type. First, he had that on-and-off relationship with Rashida Jones, daughter of Quincy and former star of The Office. Then as soon as English cutie Emily Blunt dumped Michael Buble, Blunt and Krasinski were a couple and have been ever since. Now reports are indicating that John might be dumping Emily for his costar, Lake Bell.

John and Lake met on a Nancy Meyers film that is yet untitled. Meyers wrote and directed that film with Diane Keaton and Jack Nicholson, Something’s Got To Give, so she usually knows how to pick a cast. But John Krasinski and Lake Bell? Lake Bell is like the budget version of Amanda Peet. John could do better – and has with Emily Blunt.

Looks like The Office’s John Krasinski has a workplace crush! Although he’s been dating The Devil Wears Prada’s Emily Blunt, 26, since November, John, 29, has gotten very close to Lake Bell, 30, his costar in the upcoming untitled Nancy Myers film, an insider tells Star.

“John and Lake have been flirting like crazy on set. In between takes, they sit next to each other, giggling and whispering like teenagers – he’ll play with her rings or she’ll rest his head on his shoulder.”

While other cast members are bussing about the obvious chemistry between the two even when cameras aren’t rolling, “I don’t think they care,” says the insider.

“But it’s almost uncomfortable to watch.” Let’s hope Emily doesn’t pay a surprise visit to the set!

Let’s hope Emily does pay a surprise visit to the set and dumps Krasinski. What am I saying? I adore John Krasinski, and I so don’t want to believe this story. Could it be that the guy every mother loves is just the same as all of the other up-and-coming Hollywood womanizers? This is what happens when an actor is so identifiable with one particular character – Jim Halpert would never do this. I can’t believe it.

    It’s true, Jim Halpert would never do such a thing.

    Dwight maybe, but only if Lake Bell could carry her weight in beets.

    at first i thought this was about camille bell, and then I was going to say it was alright because camille belle is stunning-more so than emily. but then I saw that it was this peasant-faced mannish creature, and I dont see what John could be thinking.

  3. Annie says:

    Nony!! LOL. I was thinking the SAME thing!!!

  4. Lizzy says:

    Oh please. This is from Star magazine. Whenever anything is written about your precious Angelina in Star you laugh at its absurdity and don’t take it seriously for one second. A little biased?

    nony! haha that was so awesome.

    i dont think lake bell is a godod actress at all and shes not very attractive. she looks like the masculine version of jennifer connolly.

    First off, it’s from “Star” magazine, who is more wrong than right. They seem to be getting stuff out of nothing since John and Emily haven’t been seen together in a while. (Psst… it’s because she’s filming in England.)

    Secondly, since when exactly is “sitting next to someone, giggling, whispering, playing around, and resting a head on a shoulder” cheating? I’m happily engaged and I do this sort of stuff with my guy friends all the time and there’s no way I’m cheating on my fiance with them.

    Lastly, if worse comes to worse (since I love John and Emily together), they couldn’t have broken up a while ago, thus John’s free to “flirt” with anyone he wants.

    it was the same star mag which was the first to report that emily and john were dating before anyone else reported it,so star mag do get it right sometimes; it remain to see if this one is true

    I don’t know who either one of those girls are, but I sort of wish he’d get together in real life with Jenna Fischer. They make such a cute couple (sorry my Office nerd just came out).

    I adore him, I hope he doesn’t turn into a douchey womanizing star.

  9. TinaWithPom says:

    Maybe he’s going to turn into a John Cusack kind of womanizer, playing off on his “good boy” looks.

    lol nony you’re hilarious!

  11. RaraAvis says:

    Who? Who? And who? Must be a network show.

  12. Carena says:

    He’ll always be Jim to me. I can’t help it, Jim is so adorable! And on the last episode…yay Jim and Pam!! So cute!

    Anyone who would leave a total godess like Emily Blunt for that man faced tranny looking bitch is insane.
