John Krasinski's on His Reaction to Mary Poppins Returns

Will Mary Poppins Returns Make You Cry? According to John Krasinski, That's a Big Yep

The first time John Krasinski watched Mary Poppins Returns, Emily Blunt briefly thought he didn't like it because he had to walk out of the screening. The reason for his momentary absence? John was desperately looking for anything to dry up his tears. "I was pushing through all the muffins and bagels in the back, looking for napkins. I was like, 'I need anything to stop this crying,'" John said in a sweet appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

John said he eventually ran out of napkins, too, and from that point on "it's just all sweater," he joked. The actor was blown away by his wife's performance — which included singing! — and described the sequel as "one of the most beautiful films." John said, "It's I think exactly what everybody needs at the holidays. It's pure joy."

John's emotional reaction largely differed from that of his 4-year-old daughter, Hazel. In a recent interview with Jimmy Kimmel, Emily reenacted her daughter's "strange" and "completely impassive" reaction to watching the Mary Poppins Returns trailer. Can't win them all, eh?
