Jenna Fischer is a well-known American actress who rose to prominence by starring in the NBC sitcom The Office. The Office is a mockumentary sitcom with a total of 9 seasons that aired between 2005 and 2013. The sitcom was a tremendous hit and was adored by fans who enjoyed the daily depiction of work life. Two of the central characters of the story were Pam Beesly and Jim Halpert, played by Jenna Fischer and John Krasinski respectively. The duo played each other’s love interest in the story and portrayed one of the loveliest couples on screen. The duo may be the couple on screen but were only close friends in real life.
The duo never sparked any off-screen dating humor as Fischer was married at that time to filmmaker James Gunn, whereas Krasinski was dating Rashida Jones. The time changed and both the celebs moved on from their unsuccessful relations of the past and took a step forward to meet their respective partners. Jenna Fischer married Lee Kirk and John Krasinski married Emily Blunt. Both marriages took place in 2010 and ever since, none of the couples has ever looked back. Despite their friendship, Fischer revealed that she never watched the hit horror movie A Quiet Place which starred Krasinski and Blunt.

The duo became close friends who had to play each other’s love interest on-screen. The Lollilove star revealed that it was strange and weird when the duo would perform intimate scenes for the camera.
“It is the strangest thing to have a long-term fictional love interest. It’s a type of relationship that is very intimate, and it’s very powerful, but it’s fictional. I mean, there is a part of me that is Pam, and there’s a part of him that is Jim, and that part of me is in love with that part of him. But in real life, we are just friends.”
The duo was last seen together on-screen nearly a decade ago, but both celebrities still maintain a good relationship with each other.

So I’m going to see it.”
