John Krasinski and Emily Blunt Apparently Had a Close Encounter with a Shark

Lovely-seeming couple John Krasinski and Emily Blunt are probably the two celebrities we’d least like to see get attacked by sharks, but apparently it almost happened—on their honeymoon, no less.

“Emily never wanted to learn scuba diving and I was like, ‘We’ll never get into trouble with sharks,” Krasinski said on an episode of “Ellen,” airing Friday. “All of a sudden one broke off from the circle and started swimming behind us. I saw it and Emily didn’t. He started to charge Emily, so my decision was, ‘If I spook her and she moves a lot, he might bite her.'”

The shark ended up swimming by, but when the “Devil Wears Prada” star realized what had happened, Krasinksi said, “she kind of passed out under water.”

“All of her air just went to the top,” he said. “It was pretty scary.”

She recovered quickly with some help from a sea turtle, which apparently came over to comfort her in the water, hugging her and petting her head. It sounds like a deleted scene from “The Little Mermaid,” but Krasinski brought video of the little guy rushing to Emily’s side, which you can see at 2:20.
