“It’s one of those things that back in the day, us elderly people used to channel surf. Nobody does that anymore. It’s just one of those movies that whenever you’re going through the channels, you just stop and you look.”

Blunt added that her spouse was really invested in the film, and how one day when she returned home she saw him watching the montage scene in the film, where Hathaway was trying out different outfits in the sequence, and he says out loud “That’s my favorite outfit.”

Stephen Colbert Rejects Dinner Invitation From His Good Friend John Krasinski

Being a talented actor has its advantages and disadvantages, but having a wife who is more talented and renowned than them brings nothing but disadvantages. One such disadvantage is that when one invites their friend to a dinner, they would reject the offer as their famous half will not be at the event. Such was the case with Krasinski when he visited The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

In a hilarious conversation between the two, the Free Guy actor shared that he had invited his good friend Stephen Colbert for dinner but he rejected the offer because Blunt would not be present. 

“Krasinsiki: I invited him to dinner tonight.

Colbert: And I said…

Krasinsiki: No.

Colbert: No! I first said, ‘Is his wife going to be there?’”

While the two had a hilarious exchange, John Krasinski mentioned that it was horrifying, to which the actor joked, “By the way I would only go if it was my wife, too.” Colbert jokingly replied that he did not want to act as a third wheel between them, as his wife is the draw, not him. The host looked at the camera and ensured that he was just joking, leading to one of the funniest conversations ever.

The Devil Wears Prada can be streamed on Hulu.
