John is featured in the current issue of Women’s Health (January/February 2016). We have added the magazine scans in our gallery and the photoshoot outtakes in our gallery. John is also on the cover of Men’s Health, as we previously reported, and the photoshoot is by the same photographer. Both magazines are currently on newsstands, so be sure to pick up your own copy!
John Krasinski took social media by storm last week when the latest issue of Men’s Health, starring the once lanky guy from The Office, hit newsstands. On the mag’s cover is one very ripped dude, and inside our Jan/Feb 2016 issue is that same ripped dude, answering all sorts of questions about his new physique, love life, and bad habits.
You completely transformed your body for 13 Hours. What was that experience like?
When abs show and you can actually count them and there’s more than two? I think that’s a pretty big day. And when you get those lower abs that go into your jeans, you’re like, I don’t even know what those are, but I’m glad they’re here.
Is it ever okay to lie to your partner?
I don’t think so, unless it’s for something fun. Emily [Blunt, Krasinski’s wife] always knows when I’m lying. She’ll be like, “Is someone in the room next to us about to surprise me for my birthday?” And I’m like, “No, not at all!” She says that I get really excited. I’m the guy who, the night before her birthday, will be like, “Do you want your gift??” I’m that guy.
Are there any habits you need to break?
I do the weirdest thing where, when I’m in the kitchen, like after I get a bowl out, I’ll leave cabinet doors open. Which is not only stupid, but also a real physical hazard for people. I’m just setting up death traps for my kid [John’s daughter, Hazel, will be 2 in February]. I’m a great dad.
Got a bromance crush?
I think every dude from Boston has a bromance crush on Tom Brady. But it’s always with a frown, like [in a Boston accent], “No, I don’t, he’s just my boy.” We know that we all took a split second longer than we should have to look at those Stetson ads.
What would the reality show of your life be called?
Let’s Go Use the John. How’s that? Or, I Have to Use the John. Or, Where’s the John? Yeah, that one is pretty great. I have to go develop that show for myself right now.
