Emergency Questions

Do you think it would be cheating if I had sex with you when you were being the robot in Passengers?

I didn’t have anything down there, no. I had to be strapped in to a contraption and I had a big steel rod up my back, and I was strapped to it. Yeah, and there was this guy behind a computer desk and he programmed the movements of the thing behind the bar. And it would just *makes wooshing noises.* I’d be, like, “Whoa!” And I had to be strapped to this iron bar because when they whizzed me to the bar I couldn’t shake. Like, I had to stay really still. And if someone was to get in the way of the track – dead. Because I had no control over the thing, the machine. It would just kill them. They CGI’d my [legs]. So, I had to wear – when you do the CGI thing you have to wear green, a green outfit. Have you seen that thing where people wear a full green outfit and they look like Andy Serkis looking like Kermit or something, you know, being Golem. And so you have to wear green so then they can use the green to put the CGI on. So I had to wear The Shining bartender top half and then these stupid green leggings. And I’m walking on set every day – upper half, quite James Bond. Lower half, not. And I had to walk on the set every day with Jennifer Lawrence, hoping to impress Jennifer Lawrence, looking like an idiot.

What’s your greatest weakness?

Oh, if I see a field of wheat…
