Being a rom-com genre, she knew that she would be able to confront herself.
“If I can do it for a joke, yes… And Ryan and I wanted the laugh.We wanted it to be something you’ve never quite seen before.”
She eventually filmed the scene.
“We said, ‘Ok, we just gotta [do it]; just warn the crew, you know, don’t eat your lunch cause it might get ugly.’ But everyone was on the same page. Anne Fletcher, the director, wanted it choreographed a certain way and we were all game for it.”
While she herself signed up for the act, she was concerned regarding this particular scene.
“Please don’t let this wind up on YouTube. Just please…”

Back in 2021, the actress reminisced about her time on the set of the hit film and shared that she felt comfortable filming bare with her co-star. Though she was up to filming hard-core comedy scenes, filming naked scenes also worked for her.
“I was like, ‘I will do this naked scene only if I can be humiliated and funny.’ You will not see me trying to attempt being sexy naked — in real life or onscreen.”
She knew that the surrounding was safe for her and trusted her friend, Reynolds who gave her comfortable space.
“There’s just no point in it! It was for that reason, with a friend that you trusted comedically and safety-wise, I knew I was in the presence of safety.”
The Deadpool star was among the two reasons which convinced her in accepting this project. The other was the script of the film, which instantly caught her attention. She even got a Golden Globe Award nomination with the film becoming a mega success.
