To their co-star, Andrew Schulz’s “The Brilliant Idiots” podcast, which they co-host with Charlamagne, thank God for the movie’s final scene where the two costars didn’t kiss.
The subject of Hill and London’s characters in the Netflix movie appearing to be an odd couple came up during an episode that featured the two men and their guest, DJ Nyla Symone.
Then Schulz clarified that they weren’t kissing while the final scene of the movie was being filmed.
“There’s something hilarious – I don’t even know if I should share this – but in the final scene they don’t even kiss,” Schulz said. “Are CGI. Swear to God.”

The comedian claimed that the actors hadn’t quite put their lips together while filming the scene where Ezra (Hill) and Amira (London) reconcile and get married. Schulz predicted that the sequence would cut the couple out in the final cut of the film.
“I’m there and I’m watching the wedding and I see them go in for the kiss and their faces stop so far, and I wonder how they’re going to play that in the movie, they’ll probably just cut there,” said Schulz.
But in the movie, you could see their faces get close together and then kind of turn into a fake kiss.
