Jenna Fisher just revealed the secret of the on-screen chemistry of Pam, her character in The Office, and Jim, played by John Krasinsky.
The 41-year-old actress told Watch What Happens Live that she and John Krasinsky have real chemistry. The magic happened because there was “a real part of me that is Pam and a real part of him that’s Jim and those parts of us were genuinely in love with one another,” said Fisher.
The Office’s love team of Pam and Jim have been one of the most favorite on-screen couples in America. Some might dispute the top would be Ross and Rachel from Friends, but Pam and Jim could still be at the top five, according to Refinery29.
Though it would be ideal to have this sweet, adorable couple date in real life, Jenna Fisher made it clear that they were just work spouses. The Jenna Fisher-John Krasinski duo would not really work in the real world.
“…in real life we aren’t totally Pam and totally Jim so in real life we’re not the perfect match. So it’s a really complicated thing but he was like a type of spouse that I had for a long time. He was my partner and we will always be close because of it.”
Real Life, Real Love
Though they did not work, the two have outstanding marriages. John Krasinsky married Sicario actress Emily Blunt, while Jenna Fisher married writer Lee Kirk.
Interestingly, the two have Hollywood-related partners. Lee Kirk is Jenna Fisher and John Krasinsky’s co-star in The Office. Kirk starred as Clark in 2010. Kirk has been known for his works including Pants on Fire, The Man Who Invented the Moon, and The Giant Mechanical Man. He has just finished a 2016 project called Geezer.
On the other hand, John Krasinsky’s spouse, Emily Blunt, has also been busy. She appeared on the Edge of Tomorrow, Looper, and the romantic comedy film The Five-Year Engagement with Jason Segel.
Emily Blunt has been taking more action roles these days. In Sicario, she is a badass police officer who has been invited to join a joint-agency task force built to pin down a big mafia boss.
She has just finished shooting The Huntsman: Winter’s War together with Jessica Chastain and Charlize Theron.
While their real life partners are busy with work, John Krasinsky and Jenna Fisher are also taking matters into their hands—separately.
Jenna Fisher has been involved in the TV series, You, Me and the Apocalypse.
She has also finished shooting the 2016 film Kiss Me. Kiss Me was written by Elizabeth Sarnoff and was directed by Jeff Probst.
Meanwhile, John Krasinsky has been all over the place. From awkwardly congratulating Leonardo di Caprio during the Golden Globes to getting on multiple covers of men’s magazines, the actor has been enjoying 2016 so far.
At the same time, John Krasinsky has been focusing on supporting his daughter, Hazel, who was reported to be diving into acting too, according to Popsugar.
When asked about their daughter’s Hollywood inclination, the actor said: “She’s 2, so we talked about it yesterday. It was a really intense conversation — she made a lot of good points. She said, ‘I want to get it out of my system’ — must have talked to your daughter.”
John Krasinsky said they know the reality that acting is a “tough business,” but they will still support Hazel to do what she wants.
“If she understands what she wants and why she wants it, then that’s great.”
