John Krasinski said that Emily Blunt 'hates' his muscles

"She hates it," he quipped during an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. "She would way prefer to have the doughy guy back."

Set to play a Navy SEAL in upcoming action thriller 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi, John admitted that working to get in the right physical condition proved to be a lot more difficult than he had initially anticipated.

"It's real work, too," he explained. "I thought it would be like, 'Yeah, let's eat a couple Power Bars and do push-ups.' And he [the trainer] was like, 'No. It's going to be a living hell for six to eight weeks.'"

The Office star went on to confess that before the training, his fitness levels were fairly basic compared to the gruelling schedule ahead of him. "I couldn't do one pull-up," he said. "I was like, 'How hard are these pull-ups, really?'" Nowadays it's a completely different story – John revealed his workouts include "pulling sleds" and "pushing weights".

Chris Hemsworth recently shocked fans with a photo of his dramatic transformation for a film

However, he quickly reassured his fans, revealing it was part of his role for In the Heart of the Sea.

"Just tried a new diet/training program called "Lost At Sea"," he quipped in the caption, referencing the upcoming drama which sees him playing a First Mate left shipwrecked with his crew in the ocean after a whale attacks their boat. He added: "Wouldn't recommend it… #IntheHeartoftheSea."
