John Krasinski's new body

John Krasinski Beefs Up For New Role, Wife Emily Blunt Is Not Into The New Look

The Office star John Krasinski is turning heads for his outrageous body transformation. Krasinski recently went from Office hottie to a muscular babe, and going from all the retweets of his Men’s Health spread and the Instagram likes, the world is in agreement that this is a great look for Krasinski.

However, there’s one person who’s not into John Krasinski’s new buff look, and that’s his wife, Emily Blunt. Krasinski got buff for his new role in 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi, in which he plays CIA contractor Jack Da Silva. The actor told Stephen Colbert on The Late Show that Emily isn’t a fan of his new look.

“She hates it. She would way prefer to have doughy guy back.” Colbert replied, “Doughy is a strong word.” Krasinski jokingly corrected himself, “No like sweet-faced.” Colbert argued that John is still sweet-faced, and we’re betting that most would agree with him.

Still, fans had a ball when his Men’s Health shoot was revealed.

So what’s all the fuss about? Take a look.

Colbert noted just how lucky Krasinski is, and this body has been just the icing on the cake. Even though John was being humble, Colbert jokingly gave him some gruff about his life.

“You have a great career, you’ve got that, you’ve got Emily Blunt. Are you trying to make people resent you?”

So, how did Krasinski get in such great shape? The actor didn’t go easy on himself. Although Krasinski said he thought it was going to be an easy task, Bradley Cooper’s trainer, who he worked with, really put the pressure on when it came to getting in shape for the role. Krasinski said that it went beyond doing a few push ups and eating a few power bars, and that the experience was intense.

Of his trainer, Krasinski said that his time with him was “a living hell” for six to eight weeks. His regimen entailed two-a-days, pulling sleds, pushing weights, and 80 push ups on a daily basis. The actor said that he wasn’t in the best of shape going into his body transformation. “I couldn’t do one pull-up. I was like, ‘How hard are these pull-ups, really?’ ”

Although the married couple couldn’t agree on his body transformation, they do have other things in common — notably, they share the same girl crush. As the Inquisitr reported, after working with Charlize Theron in The Huntsman, Blunt said she has a girl crush on the actress. “I loved working with all those people and Charlize is my new girl crush, for sure.” Krasinski agrees, “She’s my new girl crush, too. She said I’m allowed to say that.”

It isn’t strange for a couple to have celebrity crushes, but seeing as these two are celebrities in their own right, it’s pretty comical. That said, unlike “regular” couples, Krasinski and Blunt don’t have a “pass,” which is a good thing because either one is more than likely to run into their “pass” celebrity, since they’re both in the industry.
