Did Lauren London and Jonah Hill kiss at the end of ‘You People’?
‘You People’ co-star Andrew Schulz is claiming the kiss at the end of the movie used CGI.
Lauren London and Jonah Hill’s romantic comedy ‘You People’ may have been a hit with fans on Netflix, but one cast member is claiming the two co-stars never actually kissed at the end of the film.
The movie was released in select theaters on January 20 before its streaming release on January 27 on Netflix.
Fans flocked to watch the movie, as it debuted at the top of the Netflix English-language film list for the week of January 23 to January 29, accumulating 55.65 million hours viewed during its first week of streaming.
In the film, Hill plays a financier and podcaster who falls madly in love with a designer (played by London). As the bond between the couple deepens, they try to bring their two families - played by Julia Louis-Dreyfus and David Duchovny, and Eddie Murphy and Nia Long - together.
Did London and Hill kiss at the end of the movie?
Some fans have stated London and Hill didn’t make a great couple in the film, something the actress agreed on. However, London added that while the two characters came from two worlds, the two actors focused on “going for the soul connection.”
Comedian Andrew Schulz, who plays Ezra’s (Hill) cousin Avi in the film, has added another layer to the conversation by claiming that Hill and London didn’t actually kiss at the end of the movie.
“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. It’s CGI. Swear to god, son,” Schulz said on ‘The Brilliant Idiots’ podcast while speaking with co-host Charlamagne tha God.
Schulz, who was present at the scene in which Hill and London reconcile and get married, says he thought the movie would simply cut away from the moment.
“I’m there, I’m watching the wedding, and I see them go in for the kiss, and their faces stop like this far. And I’m like, ‘I wonder how they’re going to play that in the movie,” he said.
“Oh, they’re probably just gonna cut right there.’ But the movie, you can see their faces come close, and then you can see their faces morph a little bit into a fake kiss.”
Fans looking to see the entire scene can fast forward to the 1:48:00 mark of the film, which is currently streaming on Netflix.
