John Krasinski stopped by "Conan" on Thursday to talk about his new movie "Big Miracle," and to dish on his relationship with his wife, actress Emily Blunt.

Krasinski described the first time he met Blunt: "[She was] incredibly intimidating. I was scared out of my mind to even go up and say 'Hi' to her," he said.

When he did muster up the courage to ask her out, "The Office" star chose an unusual location for their first date: the gun range.

"I think that I was so sure that I would never end up with her because she'd be like 'This is ridiculous, I can have anyone, not you,'" he told host Conan O'Brien. "I was like, 'I'm going to blow it right away and then that way you don't feel bad.'"

Krasinski and Blunt began dating in November 2008 and announced their engagement in August 2009. The couple married in a private ceremony in Italy in July 2010.
