A tabloid claims John Krasinski has been acting “weird” while prepping for the sequel to A Quiet Place, and those involved with the film hope Emily Blunt will get him back to normal when she starts shooting. Gossip Cop can debunk the phony story. We’re told it’s completely made-up.
According to OK!, the actor has been going out of his way to become a “country bumpkin” while on location in western New York, where he’s gearing up to shoot A Quiet Place 2. Krasinski, who’s directing the follow-up to the hit 2018 thriller, has been busy scouting locations in town for the past couple of months. The outlet maintains that his bid to impress the locals is getting “excessive.”
An alleged insider tells the magazine, “He’s just been trying too hard. He’s doing weird stuff like shaking people’s hands wherever he goes and saying, ‘Howdy.’ He’ll wear lumberjack shirts so he can fit in and is going to bars to chow down on wings and beer. It’s becoming pretty gluttonous.”
The anonymous source goes on to say that Krasinski’s colleagues wants his wife to “give him a wake-up call” when she arrives in town for filming. “Hopefully, she can calm John down a bit before he really embarrasses himself,” adds the supposed tipster.
The tabloid’s story is based on claims from an unidentified and possibly fictitious “insider,” but Gossip Cop reached out to Krasinski’s spokesperson, who tells us on the record it’s “completely untrue.” The actor hasn’t been acting bizarrely or going to extreme lengths to “fit in” with the residents of the small town where he’s shooting. We’re also assured that none of Krasinski’s colleagues are expecting Blunt to put a stop to his imaginary antics.
Just last month, Gossip Cop called out OK! for falsely claiming Krasinski and Blunt were having marriage problems because they’ve been spending an increasing amount of time apart. The tabloid didn’t realize at the time that the spouses would be spending the summer shooting A Quiet Place 2 together. It’s highly unlikely the outlet knows what’s happening on the film’s location, considering the magazine wasn’t aware last month that it was going into production. This latest article also makes no mention of the couple’s marriage being in trouble, which isn’t the case.
It’s also worth noting, back when the spouses were filming A Quiet Place in 2017, Gossip Cop busted the publication for making up a story about Blunt bossing around Krasinski on set. That narrative was equally phony. The untrustworthy tabloid has zero insight into the couple’s marriage or careers.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
