“Totally selfishly, [sex] is so much better for me being jacked because you feel so much more confident and you see yourself as this much more sexual person, which is really fun,” the Office alum, who is married to Emily Blunt, told Elle magazine in its September 2016 issue.

The 36-year-old completely transformed his previously slim frame for the role, in which he plays a CIA contractor and former Navy SEAL who sports a ridiculously buff body.

When Elle asked Krasinski about how Blunt, 33, feels about his new physique, the actor said she’s obviously not complaining.

“The truth is, she really is that person who would like me any way,” he told the mag. “But I don't think she's going to kick the eight-pack abs out of bed.”

To get into shape, Krasinski previously told Men’s Health that he worked out twice a day for five weeks and went from having 26 percent body fat to an impressive 5 percent.

"I gotta be honest: It was brutal at times," he told Men’s Health in December 2015. “We did tons of metabolic work, dragging sleds and all this stuff I've seen NFL players do."
