In all my engagements and marriages I can honestly say that no father-in-law that has called me lovely. There was an uncle-in-law who did but I think he was checking me out so that doesn't count. It is kind of an odd compliment but that is how Emily Blunt's father referred to John Krasinski when Emily's dad was asked about his feelings for John. "We are very happy for her. He is a lovely guy, very bright and a great companion for Emily. We have met him, of course."
Does the statement seem odd to anyone else or have I just had too much caffeine this morning? I don't think I have ever called another guy lovely. Great guy sure. Good looking ok. Lovely? Not so much. And companion? It sounds like he escorting her to a cotillion and not about to get married to her.
Unfortunately he wasn't asked for his opinion of Michael Buble. I'm guessing he doesn't think Michael is all that lovely or a great companion.
