Matt Damon and Emily Blunt Reminisce About “We Bought a Zoo” Kissing Scene
Matt Damon and Emily Blunt, co-stars in Christopher Nolan’s highly anticipated film “Oppenheimer,” recently engaged in a lighthearted and candid conversation during an “Agree to Disagree” segment with LADBible. The two actors delved into the topic of whether it’s appropriate to inform someone about bad breath, and both strongly agreed that honesty is essential, especially during intimate scenes with co-stars.
The conversation took an amusing turn when Damon brought up his experience filming the 2011 movie “We Bought a Zoo,” which featured an intimate kissing scene with Scarlett Johansson, his erstwhile co-star from Marvel films. Damon shared that the moment leading up to the on-screen kiss was perfect after a refreshing tea shot. However, their lunch break proved to be a game-changer when Johansson accidentally consumed an onion sandwich.
As the cameras rolled and the tight shot for the kiss was set up, Johansson hilariously realized the aftermath of her lunch choice and exclaimed her dismay. Despite the unexpected challenge, Damon playfully teased her throughout the scene. Yet, he couldn’t help but notice that even with the onion-induced predicament, Johansson’s breath still somehow managed to evoke the fragrance of “roses.”
Blunt playfully quipped whether Damon was able to maintain his composure and stay “slightly aroused” during the filming. With a smile, Damon shared that he managed to keep a straight face, even though the situation was both funny and challenging. The exchange between Damon and Blunt highlights the importance of open communication and humor on set, even in the face of unexpected surprises.
