I have to apologize to him for that at some point. It was just one of those things that we all vowed and had to protect. Look what happened — it was the best. The 'that's what she said' was the perfect use of Steve." Very true — it was so lovely . Krasinski also mused and gushed about the series being over, saying, "Not only has it given me every opportunity in the business, but I wouldn't have met Emily [Blunt, his wife] . In a very big, existential way it's the most important thing in my life." Awww! //
