After eight years as an on-screen couple, Jenna Fischer says she still regards her The Office costar John Krasinski as “a type of spouse.”

Playing fan-favorite pair Jim and Pam led to some “real chemistry” between the stars, Fischer said on Wednesday’s Watch What Happens Live.

“There’s like a real part of me that is Pam, and there’s a real part of him that’s Jim, and those parts of us were genuinely in love with one another,” she explained to Andy Cohen. “But, in real life, we aren’t totally Pam and totally Jim. So in real life we’re not like the perfect match.”

Fischer, who is married to Lee Kirk, and Krasinski, who tied the knot with Emily Blunt in 2010, said that despite separate personal lives, the 13 Hours actor was “like my partner.”

She added, “We will always be close because of it.”

The actress also dished on her costars’ behavior outside of their “business casual” on-set attire.

During the series 2005 13 run, Fischer revealed that Mindy Kaling was the most notorious for flubbing lines and Rainn Wilson had the worst potty mouth.

Krasinski – who recently underwent a major body transformation – was, according to Fischer, the most fun on set but also the rowdiest at holiday parties. We’re guessing those new abs mean no more raucous behavior.
