Serious question: would you rather catch your husband watching porn or The Devil Wears Prada over and over again? We know, it's a tricky one. But for Emily Blunt and John Krasinski, the answer is The Devil Wears Prada, but not after some serious "I think he's watching porn" confusion.

"Say whaaaat?" you might ask. Well here's the deal: the actor shared that when the couple was first dating, the actress, now 33, walked in on Krasinski, 36, watching something on TV, and upon realizing she was in the room, he quickly changed the channel, according to E! Online. The quick channel change is something we're pretty sure all couples can relate to, usually meaning one thing: porn. However, Krasinski had a dirty little secret: He is obsessed with his wife's 2006 movie, The Devil Wears Prada, and was actually watching it at the time she walked in.

But he wasn't so open about what he was watching as she broached him with the question that has graced many wives' lips: "Are you watching porn?" And The Office actor, not feeling close enough to his new girlfriend to spill the beans on his rom com obsession, didn't deny it out of sheer embarrassment. "We had just started dating and she had come over to my house. She popped by in between some things and I was watching it," The Office star said. "She opened the door and I flipped the channel and she looked at me like, 'Were you just watching porn?'I think it was better for me at the time for her to think I was watching porn than watching The Devil Wears Prada for the 75th time."

And 75 is actually actually a pretty legitimate estimate of the number of times the actor-turned-director has watched the flick. "There was one day when it was on and I said it was so good and Emily said, 'Have you seen this movie?'" he shared with E!. Finally, he answered truthfully. "I said, a lot of times," and when she asked for an actual number he said "Like 75." That's dedication.

That didn't seem to scare Blunt off, since eight years later they are now married with two children, Hazel and Violet. For her big day in 2010 (which went down at the Villa D'este in Como, Italy), Blunt wore a cream, chiffon Marchesa gown, according to Radar Online and the newlyweds then spent a week at George Clooney's estate (the legendary actor became friends with Krasinski after they both acted in Letterheads).**

Regardless, this all just goes to show that while your husband may quickly change the channel, you shouldn't always be quick jump to conclusions — and give him the benefit of the doubt about his TV-watching picks. He may be watching his favorite romantic comedy!
