Back in the day, Diego Luna and Gael Garcia Bernal had girls swooning as two pals going through the throes of teen angst in "Y Tu Mama Tambien." Years later they would reunite on-screen as brothers in "Rudo Y Cursi." Now they're once again teaming up in the very hysterical Will Ferrell comedy "Casa de Mi Padre" (whose trailer dropped today).
We felt this was as auspicious an occasion as any to tap into the MTV News vault and relive a hilarious interview (from 2009!) in which they had a good laugh about their big kissing scene in the indie darling "Y Tu Mama Tambien" (and debate whether it was hotter than Diego's smooch with Sean Penn in "Milk").
"The problem is, you're asking this question in front of me cause I know the answer… it’s a bit unfair for Sean Penn," Gael joked.
"Who's a better kisser? If I have to do it again, I would like to try something else," Diego responded. "I don’t know if I'm going to answer. Let's say I had to kiss Gael 9 or 11 times…it was a one shot scene, so it was one chance to get it right and he kept missing the lines, and he had the chance to kiss me nine times. Sean was happy with three."
Always good with a quick, sarcastic comment, Gael quipped, "Is he that quick?"
We imagine that these two will once again tickle our funny bone when "Casa de Mi Padre" drops later this year.
Are you excited for this movie?
