John Krasinski Responds To Amy Schumer Saying His Marriage To Emily Blunt Is Fake
John Krasinski has responded to claims made by Amy Schumer that his marriage to Emily Blunt is a sham.
The comedian took to Instagram this week to heap praise on the couple's new release, A Quiet Place Part II.
However, while she was full of admiration for the movie, she didn't seem to be as convinced of their relationship.
Writing in a now-deleted post, the 40-year-old said: "I loved every second of @aquietplacemovie even better than the first one which blew me away. Amazing to be in a movie theater.
"Although I've said for a long time I think Emily and John have a pretend marriage for publicity. But I still think you should see it this rainy weekend."
But after spotting the comedian's remarks, Krasinski replied in kind.
Appearing to take it in good spirits, the 41-year-old joked: "Thank you Amy!...for blowing up our whole marriage spot."
The former US Office star and Blunt are known for being incredibly close and generally just loved up.
But he recently revealed that one scene in A Quiet Place Part II made him worry for his marriage
A sequence in the horror sequel sees a flashback to when Krasinski's character Lee Abbott - who died in the first film - was alive.
With the monsters starting their attack, Lee's wife Evelyn (played by Blunt) attempts to drive a car with her kids in the back through a busy street as a bus comes speeding straight at them.
Speaking about the shoot, Krasinski said that the stunt team had planned it out for weeks, but at the last minute Blunt decided she wanted to improvise.
Recalling a conversation with his wife, he told USA Today: "I said, 'Do you want to rehearse this once?', to which she replied, 'No, I want you to get the real reaction.'
"So that shot is what's in the movie. That was the first time she was ever in that car, and that bus is actually coming at her at 40 miles an hour.
"Right as I closed the door and before I called action, I thought, 'Did I just put my marriage on the line? This could go very badly for a lot of reasons.'"
In a separate conversation on Cinemablend's Reelblend podcast, Krasinski explained how he managed to convince the guardians and families of the young actors who played the kids to agree to the stunt.
He said: "Emily's [stunt] is so real, I think I put my marriage on the line when I put her in the car. That's true.
"When I was explaining to her on-set all of the things that were going to happen, I said, 'You're going to hit this stuntman. That car's going to come three feet from you. And then this bus is actually going to clock at 40 miles an hour.'
"Her face fell and she went, 'But not really.'
"And I went, 'No, no, the bus is coming at you at 40 miles. That's a real bus. And that bus hits that car, and all that is totally real.'"
