Emily Blunt and John Krasinski probably make one of the cutest couples in Hollywood, and seeing them together onscreen would deinitely be a asight for sore eyes. The Devil Wears Prada actress, who is married to The Office alum John Krasinski, has made it very clear she won't be canoodling with him onscreen any time soon. The actress insists their chemistry is 'not for public consumption'.

Fans have often asked whther the couple plans to team up on the big screen, and in a new C Magazine interview, Emily doesn't rule out the idea of working opposite each other - but insists any future pairing will not include a romantic storyline.

"I think we would prefer it to be something where we’re not married or boyfriend and girlfriend," she explains. "Our chemistry is not up for public consumption. We’d like to do a play. That would be cool."

Emily and John, who is currently starring in Off-Broadway play Dry Powder opposite Claire Danes, briefly gave fans a preview of what a potential project would look like by making cameos in two comedy sketches for their friend and U.S. talk show host Jimmy Kimmel.

In 2012, Emily played a young maiden and John her minstrel husband in a skit called Movie: The Movie, and last year, they starred as themselves in a sketch centred on The Kimmel School of Perfect Acting, in which comedian Jimmy instructed the two to act as if they were not married, a role playing exercise a 'sad' Emily justified as a 'sacrifice' for art.

Emily and John wed in Lake Como, Italy in 2010 after two years of dating. They are parents to two-year-old daughter Hazel, and the actress is pregnant with the couple's second child.
