Rashida Jones Doesn't Throw John Krasinski Under A Bus


So, the NY Daily News tried to pull a fast one on Rashida Jones and get her to throw ex-boyfriend John Krasinski under a bus. Rashida declined to do so because she is all class. Wow, that does sound a little kiss-ass-ish doesn't it? Oh, well, everyone knows I love her so it shouldn't come as a surprise. The Daily News caught up with er at Shakespeare In The Park and asked her who was the better kisser, Paul Rudd as her co-star or John Krasinski in real life? I know they asked the question in hopes that she would throw John under a bus. At least I hope that is why they asked it and not because the reporter couldn't come up with anything else. It is a pretty high school type question.

Add to this the fact she is dating a guy right now and it becomes even more awkward. I haven't checked, but I wouldn't be surprised if he was there with her that night. So, right there in front of the guy you are currently dating you get asked if your ex-boyfriend is a great kisser or not. That is a class move Daily News. For the record she did say that Paul Rudd was the better kisser and that she likes John just fine it just wasn't as good as Paul.

So, I think most of you would also probably agree with Rashida, at least in the who would you rather part of the hypothetical.

i'd hypothetically rather mr. rudd if he weren't married. yum! ;)

I guess she won't be dating that guy for much longer, because the correct, and diplomatic, answer would be neither, but the guy she is dating.

That is the guy that presumably matters, and would not constitute throwing anyone under the bus, because it is the PC answer. She is not very clever is she?

i woudn't look 2x at either of these dudes on the street, so i'd take a pass on both. apparently fame makes you a lot hotter than you really are.

I agree with Jax 100 percent

Christine said...

What an odd question. It seems like some kind of set up. For something. It's just odd topic, odd comparisons, odd everything.

And Enty, she did throw him under the bus, as I read her answer. She says the guy she fake-kissed was better at fake-kissing than the guy she wanted to kiss and did kiss for several months (or however long they dated). Rashida is gorgeous and I loved her on the Office, but that's gotta hurt. Of course, I'd rather John Krasinski so I'm maybe biased.

And Jax, I agree with you too. I love Krasinski's Office character, not him.

Sylvia said...

Don't know who Krasinski is and Paul Rudd don't think nothing special about him.

GoGo said...

I am surprised no one asked her reaction to MJ's death... she must have known him.

On topic, I agree with Christine. I love RJ too Enty but this was not the best answer RJ could have given (howe'er truthful she may have been).

That being said, I'd kiss all three. JK is awesome in his new movie...

Sue Ellen Mishkey said...

I also agree about her esentially throwing him under the bus. I think Ent is blinded by his like of her.

Carrie S. said...

I have to agree that she did semi-throw JK under the bus. Sure, she didn't say "Yeah, John was just awful, Paul was SO much better" but stating that an actor kissing you was better than your former boyfriend is pretty darn close. Then again, I'm a fan of "The Office" and JK's character so maybe I'm biased. Paul, however, is pretty darn hot...and if I had to guess, I'd say he was probably better. He just seems to have more passion/sexiness, but I could be wrong.

Theresa said...

Can I have both PR & JK at the same time? YUM!

Harriet Hellfire said...

I'd totally make out with Paul Rudd. Well, except for the whole "married" thing. I don't like to disrespect wives because I really hate it when broads hit on my husband.

lux said...

yeah, if I had to choose between Paul Rudd and John Krasinski, I'd choose Paul Rudd. But If it was between Paul Rudd and Jim Halpert...well that'd be a different story.

Anyway so what if she *dissed* his kissing technique? I thought John K was supposed to have been a bit of an ass towards her...meh, He probably deserved it.

Jungle007 said...

I think that was a huge dis to her ex and she totally threw him under the bus. Sorry to disagree ent and i do think she is great, but not answering would have been classier than saying that her scripted kiss with Rudd was better than her intimate times with John.

SFG said...

Enty, I'm failing to see where she DIDN'T throw JK under the bus. That seems like the answer one would give if they wanted to throw him under the bus. Confused.

nancer said...

i'd like it better if she'd just eyeballed the reporter and said 'that's your question? seriously?' and moved on.

the only thing more retarded than these questions is that people attempt to answer them at all.

Jade, That Girl said...

I guess her answer is probably the best answer one could give. Being that she is dating Obama's speechwriter (correct?) and if he was there, she couldn't say that JK was a better kisser because that would make the boyfriend pissed. However, completely throwing JK under would make her come off like a spiteful bitch. Then if she declined the question NY Post would probably make her seem like she thought she was too good to answer a question.

The answer is adequate, I guess. Makes all parties involved happy.

In answer for the "Who'd your rather..." question, I am going for her latest, Jon Favreau. Obama has some serious hotties in his Administration.

Isabel said...

Enty, she totally threw John under the bus, it's fine. I'll nurture him back to health.

*Oh, John, poor baby. Lay your head right here on mama's chest, shhh, it's ok. Go ahead and put one in your mouth. Just one, shhh, it's ok.*

Emobacca said...

That was really fucking creepy

Dr. Spaceman said...

Hahahaha...I'm with you, Emobacca.

jax said...

hella creepy! lol.

Wil said...

Rashida is a doll .. whatever she says is just fine with me. I still miss NYLON... *sigh*

As for the John or Paul argument .. John looks like a guy I dated in college - it ended badly .. so no. Paul .. my high school rebound boyfriend after the love of my high school life dumped me. Treated him like shit .. so no good memories there either. In the end .. I guess I would take a pass on both.

Now .. if we keep "The Office" theme .. Rainn Wilson and Steve Carell could have me any time and any way they wanted! : D - LOL!

linnea said...

wow wil, really?

i like both rudd and jk... they seem like pretty funny people.

and rashida SO threw him under the bus.

amanda rae said...

Who IS this chick? Let me guess, her daddy or mommy is someone important in show business, because as far as I can tell, that's the only reason she's famous. She's not pretty, looks dull, doesn't have any type of spark or anything that makes her memorable or interesting, at least IMHO. And her name makes me think "Radish". Ahh, gotta love nepotism, it ensures that boring, unappealing, unattractive people get into show business, while those with actual talent and appeal rot in obscurity. Yay!

Jeff said...

She so threw Johnny K under the bus. But I'll kiss it and make it all better. I should mention that I'm actually Jeff's wife. Not that there's anything wrong with that...

stiffkittens said...

amanda rae - I've never read a post from you that hasn't been hate-filled. I happen to think that Rashida is very beautiful (and so is her name).
From what i've seen, she's certainly talented enough to get the work she has on her own. Just because wiki told you she's the child of 'famous' people, doesn't make that all she is/will ever be.

I'd pick JK over Paul (the latter seems boring to me, although he is pretty). John appears to have the type of geeky humour/personality i find very attractive :)
