During an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, The Office star John Krasinski told Ellen about his emotional reaction when he saw his wife, Emily Blunt, perform in Mary Poppins Returns. Krasinski said he noticed there were tissues in the screening room but didn’t think he would need them because he didn’t have a cold. Little did he know the tissues were there not to stop a runny nose, but to dry up tears. Here’s what the actor said to Ellen:

25 minutes into the movie, I stood up and went to the back of the room, and Emily said, ‘Do you not like it? I’ve never seen this happen.’ And I was pushing through all the muffins and bagels that were in the back looking for napkins. I was like, ‘I need anything to stop this crying!’ I was crying so much. I blew through the tissue box in 20 minutes, had to go to the napkins, and when I ran out of napkins, it’s just all sweater.

I think it’s exactly what everybody needs at the holidays. It’s pure joy,” Krasinski told Ellen.
