Emily Blunt apparently wishes for the chubbier, less in shape version of husband John Krasinski now that he is a ripped hunk of a man.

Krasinski, 36, became ripped like steel after undergoing a complete body transformation for his role in the upcoming movie 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi and his wife is missing the less improved version of her husband.

According to People magazine, the The Office alum lost 21 percent of his total body fat over the course of four months in preparation for the role.

To get in great shape, Krasinski worked out twice a day for nearly four months and said it was tough.

"It's real work, too. I thought it would be like, 'Yeah, let's eat a couple Power Bars and do push-ups.' And he was like, 'No. It's going to be a living hell for six to eight weeks,' " he told Stephen Colbert during an appearance on The Late Show on Tuesday night.

Krasinski apparently made huge progress over the course of the four months of training.

"I couldn't do one pull-up," he said. "I was like, 'How hard are these pull-ups, really?'"

Krasinski noted that Emily is none too thrilled with his new look.

"She hates it," Krasinski joked. "She would way prefer to have doughy guy back."

"Doughy is a strong word," host Stephen Colbert said, trying to cajole the actor.

"No, like sweet-face," Krasinski added.

Krazinski's transformation came to light after he appeared in the January/February issue of Men's Health magazine, which garnered a lot of media attention.

"Did you always want this?" Colbert asked while holding a picture from the cover shoot.

"I looked like that in The Office," Krasinski joked. "You just didn't see it much."
