It’s all business once Alison Brie and Dave Franco arrive on set.
Brie,40 revealed during an interview with Jezebel about what it was like having her husband direct her sex scenes with Jay Ellis in her new movie, “Someone I Used to Know”. Brie told the publication that she and Franco aren’t bothered by the situation.
“I realize that it sounds wild, but we are actors, this is our job,” she said.
Brie and Franco have been married since 2017, and have appeared together in films such as “The Disaster Artist,” “The Rental,” and “Horse Girl.”
“We’ve worked together enough now,” Brie said. “The second film we did together, ever, as actors was Jeff Baena’s ‘The Little Hours,’ and in that movie, Dave has make-out or sex scenes with three other actresses and me. So, I just feel like that was the ripping of the band-aid.”
“It’s actually not that weird. And with something like this, because it’s our baby that we made together, I think our first priority is always just the movie. Does the scene feel right and good?” she added. “Like, we don’t want my romantic scenes with Jay to play awkwardly or strangely in any way.”
“Someone That I Used to Know” is a romantic comedy about Ally (Brie), a reality TV showrunner who returns to her hometown and reconnects with her ex-boyfriend, Sean (Ellis), before his marriage to Cassidy (Kiersey Clemons). The film premiered on Amazon Prime on February 10th.
On Monday, Franco said on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” that the first photos of a penis he’s ever sent to Brie were for “Somebody I Used to Know.”
“It’s so nice to work with your person, to be on set with someone who is the person you feel the most comfortable with in the world,” Brie told Hello Giggles while referring to her husband.
