“I went alone and turns out that when you go stag they put you at a great table. I was at Leonardo DiCaprio’s table,” he shared, adding that his wife, Emily Blunt, couldn't attend because she was shooting a movie.

Although he was sitting near The Revenant star, the situation was more awkward than exciting.

“I didn’t get a chance to meet him and I didn’t want to be like, ‘Hey man I’m the guy that doesn’t have anybody.’ And then they won everything,” Krasinski explained to the host. “So I’m in the middle of hugs and people are like this is the best year ever and I was like, ‘Wasn’t it?’ And then everybody went up and gave their speech I felt really pretty stupid.”

“There was a moment, speaking of Alejandro [González Iñárritu], when he won he said hi to everyone and thank you because they all worked on the movie and then turned to me and there was that moment of like, ‘Why are you here?’ and I was like, ‘Congratulations,’” he continued.

Krasinski also opened up about his cover of Men’s Health magazine after buffing up for his role in 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi, admitting he ended up ditching his social life because his diet was so restrictive.

“I mean, if you invited me over to watch a movie I would just, like, eat DVDs I was so hungry for so long,” he joked.
