10 years after Jim and Pam’s first kiss, audiences are still in love with The Office‘s adorable romance. On Monday, Jenna Fischer (Pam) showed just how much she understands the emotional connection when she replied to a fan’s tweet about her onscreen relationship.
One viewer tweeted at both Fischer and her costar John Krasinski (Jim), writing, “I’m watching the office for the first time and I’m very sadden to hear that you two aren’t together in real life.”
Fischer replied, “If it you makes you feel better, I found my Jim and he found his Pam – they just happened to be named Lee and Emily :).”
Of course, the actress was referering to her husband, writer/director Lee Kirk, and Krasinski’s wife, actress Emily Blunt.
The sweet romance between receptionist Pam and sales associate Jim played an integral role in The Office‘s run from 2005 to 2013. Fischer has previously said that the Jim and Pam parts of Krasinski and herself “were genuinely in love with one another.”
