Tina Fey & Steve Carell: Five Minute Kiss!
Here’s what the comedy duo had to share:
Steve, on a prolonged kiss that plays over the entire closing credits: “It was fun. The hardest part was not laughing, frankly….To go for it for, like, five minutes – it was a long time.”
Tina, on the kiss: “I want to state for my husband’s sake that it was a comedy idea, not an erotic idea. I did pitch: Wouldn’t it be funny if the kiss was as long as the credit sequence? It was fun because we’re both so polite and not only are we both married, but we know each other’s spouses. It was the world’s longest closed-mouth kiss. It was like a tongueless turtle mouth.”
Tina, on why she liked the film’s premise: “I liked the idea of playing grown people out on this adventure. I definitely relate to the small details of the script, just how worn-out and in a rut you can get when you’re married and working with kids.”
