What's new?

Don’t sell yourself short John!


You’ve probably heard the news. Or at the very least, you’ve probably seen the interview. Yup.

John Krasinski was a guest at Jimmy Fallon’s talk show, in it among other things… he plugged his latest directorial work (A Quiet Place) and gushed about his wife Emily Blunt. She also stars in a Quiet Place but something else about her was a topic of conversation.

He talked how the customs agent in UK didn’t believed him that he’s married to Emily and who he lucked out into marrying her. Some might think this is adorable, humble and cute but I think this is annoying to be honest. Because this is not the first time he’s done it. John has been saying this for years and years now and it has to stop really.

Why? Because as much as amazing, beautiful, talented and gorgeous his wife might be, he’s amazing, beautiful, talented and gorgeous too. They’re this celebrity couple that would leave you heartbroken if they were to ever split. But my point is… Don’t sell yourself shot John!

Look, I don’t know it he’s doing this to score positive points with his fans (or with Emily’s fans) or to protect his all-American good boy image or just not to look like a douche during these talk show appearances, but it’s not working.

Yes his wife is very attractive in a superficial and obvious sense, but so is he! He’s tall and gorgeous and smart. He went to Brown, so he’s educated, is accomplished writer and director and he was gorgeous even when he was on The Office. I know he portrayed mild-mannered Everyguy but to me he was gorgeous even in the buttoned up white shirts and Grey ties.
And don’t even get me started on the lust I had for the buffed John circa 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi. He was finneeeeeeeeee!

So, my point is…. I get that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but you should not look very hard to find John Krasinski’s beauty. I’m happy that he’s in a happy marriage and in a great career point, but he needs to drop the BS and stop selling himself short. He needs to start appreciating him for what he is, and demand the same appreciation form the public.
