John Krasinski Talks About Daughter Hazel, Continues to Melt Hearts Everywhere
Look out, Hollywood — Hazel Krasinski is coming for you. Just kidding! John Krasinski hit up the Sundance Film Festival on Saturday to promote his directorial debut, The Hollars, during an indie actors panel, and not only did he talk about The Office, but he also joked around about the possibility of his and Emily Blunt's daughter becoming an actress.
When asked whether he would want her to be in the industry, the witty actor said, "She's 2, so we talked about it yesterday. It was a really intense conversation — she made a lot of good points. She said, 'I want to get it out of my system' — must have talked to your daughter." (Referring to an earlier answer that Diane Ladd had given about her daughter, Laura Dern.) "No, I definitely feel like this is a tough business for sure. I know I won the lottery. I was a waiter before I got The Office, and after the pilot, I went back to waiting tables because I just thought, 'This will never be real.' It's still not. I think it's all about supporting what she wants to do. If she understands what she wants and why she wants it, then that's great."
And that's why Krasinski is the best dad ever.
