John Krasinski Asks Gift From Fans

John Krasinski Asks Gift From Fans

Etonline.com: John Krasinski just turned 40 -- and he's unabashedly expecting gifts from fans.

On Sunday morning, the Office alum posted a new video on his social media accounts in which he marked the occasion by asking fans to do some giving on his behalf.

"John Krasinski here and it is October 20th, which means it's my 40th birthday," he explained with a big smile while surrounded by birthday balloons. "And I know what a lot of you are thinking, 'Wow, he's old!' Thank you. I am. But what you also might be thinking is, 'Really? Well, that must have slipped my mind. What do I get that guy on his big day!?' And that is really, really too kind."

"You know, if you're one of those people who says, 'Please, no gifts on my birthday,' you and I are very different," he added. "Because I like gifts. I demand them. I'll go so far as to make you feel very awkward if you don't get me one. But, lucky for you, I'm old school. I like cash. Yep, that Goodfellas-style, put-it-right-in-a-pillowcase kinda cash."

As this point, he held up a pink pillowcase, explaining, "Yes, I stole that from my daughter's bedroom because she also forgot it was my birthday. So, if you forgot it was my birthday, don't worry about it."

That's when he directed his millions of followers to make a donation in his name to Family Reach, a non-profit that Krasinski and his wife, Emily Blunt, have worked with for years.

"So, open up your hearts, open up your cyber wallets and make my birthday dreams come true!" he concluded. In the post's caption he echoed the video's sentiments, writing, "Holy moly, I'm 40!?!?...... so what did you get me? Didn't get me anything? Don't worry I'm easy."
