Fischer's highly-publicized comments came from her appearance on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live on Jan. 20 where the 41-year-old actress opened up about the undeniable chemistry between her and her on-screen husband.

"Oh, John and I have real chemistry," Fischer shared. "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."

According to Krasinski, he feels Fischer was simply "trying to say something nice about how genuine [their] acting relationship was."

"I think we both feel it’s such an honor to be a part of that relationship," the 36-year-old actor shared.

"As far as how she was quoted about saying we were ‘genuinely in love,’ I think that was taken wildly out of context and I feel bad for her," Krasinski added.
