Jonah Hill and Lauren London’s ‘You People’ Kiss Was CGI, Says Costar
Jonah Hill and Lauren London don’t In fact lock lips in this “You People” kiss scene, according to a co-star.
Comedian Andrew Schulz, who played a supporting role as cousin Avi in the Netflix movie, said on an episode of his “The Brilliant Idiots” podcast last week that the kiss was created with CGI.
“There is a hilarious thing. I don’t even know if I should share this shit, but the final scene, they’re not even kissing,” Schulz said. “It’s CGI. Swear to God.”
“I’m there watching the wedding and I see them going to kiss. And their faces stop like that,” he said, “but in the movie, you can see their faces come together. And then you can see their faces kind of turn into a fake kiss.
Netflix did not immediately return a request for comment.
The romantic comedy follows Ezra (Hill) and Amira (London) as they navigate an interracial relationship and the clashes of family culture and societal expectations that come with it. The film was released on Netflix last month to largely negative reviews, including criticism that the romantic leads had zero on-screen chemistry.
