John Krasinski is known for playing very iconic roles from the get-go of his career in the entertainment industry. Coming to his most famous role as Jim Halpert alongside Steve Carell’s Michael Scott in the American Adaptation of The Office, he has seen a lot of success from playing that role. After its end, he pursued his career, entering the film industry and making a name for himself in various successful projects like A Quiet Place, Monsters University, and most recently, Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness in the form of Reed Richards, a.k.a, Mr. Fantastic.
Though he is this well-known and loved by his fans from all around the world, it’s not always easy to visit another country, especially when the people don’t like you that much.
In an interview on The Graham Norton Show, John Krasinski revealed that he was saved during the customs check due to Emily Blunt, where Blunt also reveals that people in England don’t like him.

During an interview with Graham Norton, John Krasinski and Emily Blunt were talking about how they managed to stay in touch with each other despite their busy work schedule, working on different projects. As they were talking about it, he revealed that he was stuck in a tight situation once at the airport with the Customs Department and the only thing that saved him from getting into trouble was Emily Blunt’s name.

He said that when he was en route to meet his wife and kids in London, the Customs officer was in a grumpy mood, which spelled a not-so-smooth pass for him. The officer asked him a bunch of questions that didn’t impress the officer at all. But when he asked about whether his wife was an actress and what her name was, Krasinski replied by saying Blunt’s name, which instantly shocked the officer, and he was all ready to give him a pass after that.
Emily Blunt said that the reason why most British people didn’t like Krasinski that much was that he looked a little too American, especially when he wore his baseball cap in the public. She had advised him that if he could cut down on wearing that cap in public, the people of Britain might accept him after all.
