"I think that was wildly misquoted or taken out of context. I'm sure she was trying to say something nice about how genuine that acting relationship was, of bringing a relationship that became popular onscreen," Krasinski told The Daily Beast with regards to the actress' earlier stance on Pam and Jim.
"I think we both feel it's such an honor to be a part of that relationship. As far as how she was quotes about saying we were 'genuinely in love,' I think that was taken wildly out of context and I feel bad for her."
During the live show last week, Fischer explained to Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live that she and Krasinski had "real chemistry" after a caller asked how close they were or if it was just good acting.
"There's like a real part of me that is Pam and a real part of him that's Jim and those parts of us were genuinely in love with one another. But in real life we aren't totally Pam and totally Jim, so in real life we're not the perfect match…he was like a type of spouse that I had for a long time, he was my partner and we will always be close because of it."
