Jenna Fischer Reveals The Real Reason Why Jim And Pam Worked On 'The Office'

A Dunder Mifflin love story for the ages.

Pam Beesly and Jim Halpert will forever be one of TV's greatest on-screen couples. According to actress Jenna Fischer, who played Pam, the couple worked so well together because she and John Krasinski (Jim) were genuinely in love. Eh, sort of.

"John and I have real chemistry," Fischer said on Wednesday's episode of "Watch What Happens Live" with Andy Cohen. "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."

Fischer added, "But in real life, we aren't totally Pam and totally Jim, so in real life, we're not the perfect match. He was like a type of spouse that I had for a long time, he was my partner and we will always be close because of it."

In real life, Krasinski married actress Emily Blunt in 2010. They have one child together, named Hazel. Fischer is married to director Lee Kirk and has two kids, Weston and Harper.

And even though Jim and Pam aren't technically together, we were still way too excited to hear what Fischer thought of her work hubby's new physique (Krasinski got SUPER ripped for his role in "13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi").

"He looks incredible," Fisher said, nodding her head in approval.
