Before things were set in stone she says, “I had met the director and Michael B. Jordan to do a chemistry test, which is like so awkward. They just put two people in a room and are like ‘how do they get along?’”

Jimmy asked, “Is it like a hotel room or a conference room?”

Tessa laughed as she replied, “Hopefully not a hotel room. I think we’ve all learned recently in Hollywood that if they say come to a hotel room then you say ‘probably not.’ It’s like an office space.”

Although it wasn’t an intimate space she does say, “Apparently there’s a part of the footage where he’s caught looking at my butt.” That’s when it became a done deal that the two had good chemistry. Tessa plays his pregnant love interest in Creed II which comes out next week.
