Andrew Schulz, another actor who appears in You People, said that you can “see their faces morph a little bit into a fake kiss.”
It is possible that Jonah Hill and Lauren London did not actually kiss in real life in order to pull off the kissing scene in “You People.”
Last week, on an episode of his podcast The Brilliant Idiots, You People costar Andrew Schulz revealed that the romantic leads of the film “don’t even kiss.” The comedian made this revelation while discussing the film with cohost Charlamagne Tha God and guest Nyla Symone.
After making a joke about how the actors Hill, 39, and London, 38, do not appear to be a good match for one another, he revealed that the two did not actually kiss when they were filming the movie’s final sequence.
During the show, Schulz is heard saying, “There’s a hilarious thing— I don’t even know if I should share this s—-, but the final scene, they don’t even kiss.” “Computer-generated imagery is being used here. Take your word for it.”
According to Schulz, when he was present for that scene, in which the characters Ezra (Hill) and Amira (London) reconcile and get married, the two actors did not actually kiss, which led Schulz to believe that the movie would simply cut away from the moment when it occurred.
He recalled the following: “I’m there, and I’m watching the wedding, and I see them go in for the kiss, and their faces stop like this far,” and he thought to himself, “I wonder how they’re going to play that in the movie, they’ll probably just cut right there.” “But you could see their faces come close to each other in the movie, and then you could see their faces transform into a little bit of a fake kiss,” you said.
Tuesday, PEOPLE’s requests for comment were not immediately met with a response from representatives of Hill, London, or Netflix.
In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar that was published the previous Wednesday, London herself admitted that she was hesitant about taking on the movie due to concerns that the characters’ relationship would not be believable when she was first approached about the part by director Kenya Barris. London was initially approached about the part by Kenya Barris.
She recalled asking Barris, who wrote the movie with Hill, “Why would these two people really like each other?” She was referring to a scene in the movie.
She explained that “They’re from two completely different worlds, and if you see them, you would never think that they would meet or hang out, whatever the case may be.” “They’re from two completely different worlds,” she said. “It was a conversation about connecting with people in an authentic way and striving for a connection with their soul,”
In addition, London admitted that she found it surprising that she and Hill were able to get along so well while filming the movie.
She explained, “I’m a black woman, and he’s a white man.” “There are many aspects of our lives that are similar between the two of us, including some of the events that have occurred, some of the perspectives that we have on life, and some of the roles that we have played in our lives. In addition to that, although we came from different parts of the city, we both grew up in Los Angeles. We both grew up in Los Angeles during the same era.”
