John Krasinski Once Saved a Woman’s Life in a Riptide

"13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi" - Dallas Premiere



Just when you thought your wife was over her crush on Jim from “The Office”, this could bring all those feelings flooding back.  In addition to being that sweet, sensitive, funny dreamboat, Jim is also a lifesaver.

Or, his real-life counterpart is, anyway.  Just before he went to college John Krasinski taught English in Costa Rica.  One day he was swimming in the ocean, and he saved a woman who got swept away by a riptide.

In a new “Playboy” interview, he says, “Literally in three seconds the girl had been swept 150 yards out.  My mom was a lifeguard and taught us to swim very early…I just went out and tried to save her.

“It was really weird…like the girl was asking me to let her die.  But I got her back…Granted, not everybody needs to have life-or-death experiences, but that changed my entire life.  All of a sudden I grew up.”
