20 Of Emily Blunt & John Krasinski’s Cutest Moments
When John Said Emily Was The Reason He Directed A Quiet Place
John was approached for the lead actor’s role in A Quiet Place before taking on the role of director. The actor told Stephen Colbert that it was actually Emily who gave him the push to direct the film, despite his fears that he wasn’t ready.
He told the late-night host, “I went down to my wife and I said ‘I have this idea, I think that this could be the greatest metaphor about parenthood, I know how to do it if I could just make it all about the family.’ Emily turned to me and said, ‘no, you’re not going to rewrite and act in it, you have to direct it’ and I said, ‘no, I’m not ready to do that’ and she said, ‘yes, you are. I’m looking at your face right now and you’re ready.’ So she’s the reason why I directed the movie.”
