Hugh Jackman‘s Real Steel hits theaters today, but he’s already promoting his upcoming film Butter with Jennifer Garner. The handsome actor “had so much fun” filming Butter, but there is one scene in particular with Jen that he will never forget!
“I had so much fun on that movie and I was so glad that she asked me to do it — she produced that movie as well. I just loved it. It was a blast and the cast was fantastic,” Hugh recently told PopSugar in an interview. “It was like one week of work for me and I had so much fun.”
But not every scene was easy!
“There was one scene where we make out in a car, but it’s never seen, you can only hear it,” he revealed. “So I’ll never forget this — the sound guy, the director, me and Jen Garner got in a car to make making love sounds.”
“It’s kind of humiliating … as we discovered he couldn’t record us both at the same time, so one had to perform, then the other had performed and I’m really glad she went first ’cause I never would’ve gone as far as she did unless she had gone first!” Hugh exclaimed. “I don’t think I’ve ever been more embarrassed in my life.”
In the film, Hugh plays a cowboy who is still in love with Jen’s character, his old high school sweetheart.
“She’s very ambitious for the two of them. And he decides without talking to her that he is going to give up butter carving and become a judge — and it makes her crazy,” Jen previously told Entertainment Tonight of her character in Butter.
“They were probably meant to be together and she dumped him,” Hugh explained. “And even though he’s remarried… the moment she turns up on his doorstep he drops [everything]… it’s like, ‘This is my second chance.’ So he’s very briefly very happy.’”
