John Krasinski Flew Home 'Every Single Weekend' to See His Family While Shooting Jack Ryan
Actor John Krasinski reportedly flew a roundtrip between Montreal and London to visit his family every weekend during the shooting of the Amazon series "Jack Ryan." "The Office" alum told People in an interview at the premiere of "Jack Ryan" on Aug. 31, that his work couldn't keep him from spending time with his family, his wife Emily Blunt and two daughters, Violet, 2, and Hazel, 4. He said that "family is a non-negotiable thing." The family decided the kids would stay with their mother Emily Blunt while she was shooting "Mary Poppins" in the UK, and he was the one "who will do the flight time." The 38-year-old actor thinks that a lot of people in the world have more challenges in life than his family does. "So for me, I think we’re all living in a fantasy camp. So I’m not going to be the first one to complain," he told People. Krasinski's co-star Dina Shihabi in "Jack Ryan" confirmed his dedicated weekly routine during an interview with People Now in August. "He flew basically every weekend to London, where Emily was shooting 'Mary Poppins,' to be with his kids. He would wrap at like 5 a.m. on a Saturday morning, get on the next flight to London, and then come back Sunday night."
