John Krasinski and Emily Blunt are a true power couple. Not only have they been married for eight years and are parents to two daughters, but they're also coworkers. And when they're not talking about their film A Quiet Place, they're talking about Krasinski's affection for one of Blunt's most iconic movies, The Devil Wears Prada.

The film features Blunt in what could be her most recognizable role as (the aptly named) Emily, Miranda Priestly's first assistant. And even though the film came out three years before Blunt and Krasinski became a couple, it seems like Krasinski's affection for it is independent of his wife. In a recent appearance on The Graham Norton Show, the actor/director admitted he had seen the movie "give or take" 72 times. "It's just one of those movies that whenever you're going through the channels you just stop and you look."

It's easy to call yourself a fan and drop a big view count, but Blunt followed up the number with a story that proves her husband is not a casual viewer. She explained that in the film, "There's a sort of montage sequence where Annie Hathaway's got numerous fabulous outfits that they go through. And John, one day I came home, and he was watching it. And he was watching the montage bit and he goes 'and that's my favorite outfit.'" Krasinski, of course, had to throw in a dig at his wife for revealing such a private at-home viewing experience. "Well, I couldn't get Annie, so..." he added before trailing off and eliciting a huge laugh from the crowd.

That The Devil Wears Prada tale is just the latest adorable story shared by the couple on their press tour. Krasinski also revealed he once spoke to a U.K. customs official who was floored that he was actually Blunt's husband, incredulously saying, "You married Emily Blunt?" It sounds like both Krasinski and Blunt are very happy with the romantic choices they've made, quirks and all.
