The Office Star John Krasinski Moved To Tears By Steve Carell's Kind Words

The Office Star John Krasinski Moved To Tears By Steve Carell's Kind Words

“The Office” star John Krasinski was moved to tears by the kind and loving words from fellow “The Office” star Steve Carell.

The words people say to one another are powerful and can and do significantly affect their lives. Everyone can easily recall those moments and words whether those words were uplifting, encouraging or negative, hurtful or stung. The words we say to one another matter, and that’s a statement with which there should be no disagreement. 

In a clip posted on social media, John recalls a moment during an interview when Steve’s words impacted him and brought him to tears. They were kind, loving and completely unexpected. 

John tells Gayle King that he wrote a character in a script specifically for Steve to play. After agreeing to play the part in the movie, John and Steve had a small “The Office” reunion. Hugs and pleasantries were exchanged. But at one point, unprompted, Steve mentioned how proud he was of John and his work since “The Office” ended.

“So, he walked in, and I had this big smile,” John said. “I thought we were going to laugh, and he came up, he gave me the biggest hug. And he looked at me like a brother and said, “I just wanted to say how proud I am of you.”

Steve added that he has loved everything that John has written and directed.

John said this loving and unexpected compliment brought tears to his eyes. He said those kind words “meant the world because that’s family.”

Words—good or bad—are powerful. They can either build up or tear someone down. An unexpected compliment or a cruel, cutting word could affect the day, week or even someone else's entire life. Choose your words carefully. Once they leave your mouth, you’ll never be able to take them back. 

Ephesians 4:29 “Let no evil talk come out of your mouth, but only what is good for giving necessary teaching, and for grace to those who give ear.”
