John Krasinski reveals what happens when you lose a bet to Emily Blunt

John Krasinski learned the hard way that you should never bet against Emily Blunt. The actor revealed during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! that he's been spending a lot of time perfecting his culinary skills, all thanks to a friendly wager with his wife of six years.


John is busy in the kitchen after losing a bet to his wife Emily Blunt.

"We made a stupid bet and I lost," the actor told the late night host. "The bet was, Emily said something about Leonardo DiCaprio being 41. And I said, 'How dare you! That cherub of a talent can't be more than 28!'"

The couple argued over Leonardo DiCaprio's age.

The 36-year-old continued, “I said he's not over 40. She said, 'If I'm right, you have to cook for me every Sunday. If you're right, you get to play Call of Duty once a week.' So I thought, 'Here we go! This is the good stuff.’”

After a little research, the couple discovered that the Revenant star is in fact 41-year-old. Now John, who “just started cooking,” will be making up for lost time in the kitchen. He told Jimmy, “It only took me 36 years to learn how to cook for myself.”

John and Emily are the proud parents of two daughters - Hazel, 2, and two-month-old Violet. While on the show, the director admitted that his firstborn is "absolutely" enjoying having her sister around. John gushed, "Every single night I say I can’t believe these two amazing girls are mine.”

Speaking with Entertainment Tonight, the Hollars director added, "[Hazel] really loves the baby and I think there is this idea of, 'Oh my God, she is adorable.' I mean when a two-and-a-half-year-old hugs a newborn baby it's one of the cutest things you will ever see."
