During her interview on Today, Jessica said that she and Oscar “we’re acting.”

“Also Oscar and I have been friends — we went to college together — so we’ve been friends more than half of our lives,” she added. “We know so much about each other, so we know how to make each other laugh without even saying anything.

Jessica went on, “We can almost read each other’s minds. It also means we could hurt each other really strongly. In the scenes, we would know how to get to the other one.”

She also reflected on how quick the moment went viral, laughing at the reactions.

“I think it was really funny because when you look at it in regular speed, I’m looking straight ahead and he looks over at me and he just kind of goes to give me a peck on my elbow, and at the same time, I’m going to give him a hug,” she says.

“So all of a sudden, his face ends up in my armpit. He made a joke out of it. Look, he’s smiling there!” Jessica said while watching the footage. “All the photographers started laughing, and were like, ‘What just happened?’”
