It may be difficult to determine the most loved couple in Hollywood but if there is one serious contender for that title, it is the duo of Emily Blunt and John Krasinski. Prior to getting together, both had already established themselves as promising stars with some notable projects to their names. Since getting together, they have supported each other’s career growth and have gone on to establish themselves as some of the biggest names in the industry.
Blunt and Krasinski have also collaborated professionally on the 2018 horror film, A Quiet Place, which fetched them several awards. While most people shy away from working with family, the couple has no such problems and this has helped them build up a massive combined net worth. They also have handsome individual fortunes to their respective names.
Emily Blunt and John Krasinski are Worth $80 Million apiece and $160 Combined.
Prior to becoming the big movie star that she is today, Blunt got her career start by appearing in several stage productions such as The Royal Family, Romeo and Juliet, and Vincent in Brixton in the early 2000s. She gave a good account of herself and many predicted that she was one to watch out for. Their predictions would eventually come true with her breakthrough performance in the 2005 British television drama, Gideon’s Daughter. Blunt’s portrayal of the troubled child of the titular character fetched her a Golden Globe award for best-supporting actress in a TV film and announced her to the top echelons of Hollywood.
Since then, her profile has continued to rise in Hollywood and she has featured in a diverse body of work including The Devil Wears Prada, The Young Victoria, The Adjustment Bureau, and The Five Year Engagement. She is now one of the most popular faces in Hollywood as well as one of the highest-paid actresses. Blunt previously collected six and seven-figure paychecks but her pay is now in the eight-figure realm. She is set to get $8-$10 million for the 2021 movie, Jungle Cruise, while A Quiet Place II earned her $12-$13 million. Other sources of income for Emily Blunt include her endorsement deals with Yves Saint Lauren and the watch company, IWC Schaffhausen. She is now worth an estimated $80 million and this is the exact same figure that her husband has been able to achieve as well.
Krasinski primarily owes his fortune to his acting career. He appeared on the hit sitcom, The Office, for nine seasons. He reportedly collected about $20,000 per episode for the first four seasons which works out to $1.76 million. His pay was then bumped to $100,000 per episode for the last five seasons which works out to $11 million. In addition to his Office paychecks, Krasinski also pocketed six and seven-figure checks for his performances in movies such as Promised Land, Aloha, Something Borrowed, Leatherheads, License To Wed, and Away We Go.
Another veritable source of income for Krasinski is his budding career as a director, writer, and producer. The actor has performed these roles on several projects but his most notable work is the 2018 horror film, A Quiet Place. Revolving around a family who has to maintain absolute silence lest they be killed by noise-sensitive creatures, Krasinski directed and executive-produced the movie. He also wrote parts of it and all his labor paid off as it went on to become a critical and commercial success, grossing $341 million on a budget of $24 million.
John Krasinski is Four Years Older than his Wife
John Krasinski was born on the 20th day of October 1979 in Boston, Massachusetts. This makes him four years older than his wife, Emily Blunt, who was born on the 23rd of February 1983. Both movie stars hailed from middle-class backgrounds and so, had a pleasant childhood. There was however some difficulties for Blunt as she had a major stuttering problem as a child. The problem persisted from age seven to fourteen and one of Blunt’s teachers advised her to try drama as a form of remedy.
The young girl was initially reluctant to try out the idea but later figured that she had nothing to lose. She thus delved into drama headlong and it ultimately helped reduce her stuttering. Most importantly, it also enabled her to discover her talent and love for acting and this marked the humble beginnings of her journey. Today, Blunt is a movie star but she has not forgotten the challenges she overcame. She has dedicated herself to helping others who might be in a similar shoe and is now a board member of the American Institute for Stuttering. She regularly attends their event and also offers financial support periodically.
Krasinski and Blunt Began Dating in 2008 and Tied The Knot Two Years Later in 2010.
The love story between Emily Blunt and her husband, John Krasinski, goes back to the year 2008 when they happened into each other at an L.A. restaurant. They were there with different pals but John, who was presumably smitten, took that opportunity to come over and chat with Blunt for some minutes. He made her laugh through it all and so, she couldn’t help falling for him. The couple began dating in earnest and by the next year, specifically August 2009, John popped the big question. Emily said yes and nearly a year later, specifically July 2010, they tied the nut.
The wedding took place on George Clooney’s estate in Lake Como, Italy. As at the time of getting married, Blunt was 27 years old while her husband was 31 years old. It has been a decade since the wedding and the love between the couple keeps on waxing strong. Krasinski never tires of gushing about his wife online or in interviews. The equally-smitten Emily has described her husband as supportive as well as a vital anchor. The couple is not hogging all this love to themselves but has expanded their family as they have welcomed two daughters namely Hazel Grace (b. February 2014) and violet (b. June 2016).
Blunt and Krasinski are determined to leave a good legacy for their kids and one of the ways through which they are doing this is their joint projects. The couple worked together on the 2018 horror movie, A Quiet Place. Blunt portrayed the female lead while Krasinski wrote, produced, directed, and starred in the movie. Their efforts paid off as the film fetched Blunt the SAG award for best-supporting actress. It also scored numerous other award nominations and did well at the box office. Such success has inspired a sequel and Blunt and Krasinski will once more make magic happen.
