John Krasinski has a number of impressive credits on his resume but back when he was just a TV star starting out with movie roles, he had a lot to learn. Luckily the actor had some amazing mentors to educate him, with George Clooney among one of the biggest A-listers who gave Krasinski advice that clearly stuck with him over the years.

Krasinski learned something huge from Clooney

In a 2016 interview with Sunday TODAY, Krasinski shared the advice that Clooney gave him about directing, something he implemented successfully when he directed the 2016 film The HollarsA Quiet Place in 2018, and A Quiet Place II in 2020.
Krasinski co-starred with Clooney in the 2008 movie Leatherheads and he found that the legendary actor had plenty of words of wisdom to share with the up-and-comer.
“I’d say the thing I learned from him most was how to maintain a level of class and respect on a movie set like it would be in a classroom or in a workplace,” Krasinski said of Clooney. “It’s gotta be that we’re all humans, and we’re all doing something. There is never a moment where we’re not a family.”

Clooney shared directing advice too

In a 2016 interview on Larry King Now, Krasinski shared how much of an impact Clooney had on him when he directed the actor in Leatherheads. “The name of the game there is ‘just steal everything.’ I’ve stolen ideas and thoughts and moves from the directors that I’ve worked with. Certainly, George Clooney taught me so much,” Krasinski noted.
He continued, “One of the things I always remember he told me was — you can make a bad movie out of a good script, but you can never make a good movie out of a bad script, so always choose wisely.”
Clooney also taught Krasinski that making movies is a team effort. “And then the other thing he always told me was, you know, the best idea has to end up on screen,” he explained. “Doesn’t matter who said it. One of your actors or the guy who’s shutting down the studio at night. If it’s going to make the movie better, it has to go on screen. It’s a team sport,” he shared.

I had the opportunity to watch "Leatherheads" from Heaven's view and I knew then it would have a longtime lasting affect.  I see "Leatherheads" as the blue print to a Heaven sent journey.
