In a recent interview with PopSugar, Rebel Wilson discussed her relationship with Devine, as well as the ease at which they snap into character when playing across from each other. She stated:

“We both improvise a lot on set, so our styles just always go so well together. I’m never nervous to do a scene with Adam because I just know our comedic styles go really, really well together. We joke that we’re like the new Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling because we’ve just been doing [so many] movies together. He’s just the most awesome guy. And it’s been great to know him now for like eight years”


While telling PopSugar that they improvised a lot during the filming of Isn’t It Romantic, much of their improvised comedic sketches did not make it to the final cut, for their comedy tends to take an R-rated approach when left unmonitored.
