As it turns out, there's a reason we all love Eddie and Jennifer so much –they're cute and totally relatable. Here are five moments from their enthralling conversation that proves just how awesome they are.

Eddie on His Love of Reality Shows

"I don't talk about it. It's really been bad on this press tour. I come home from trying to pretend to know about astronomy and physics all day and turn on The Real Housewives… I've been a closet lover of faux-reality TV since The Hills. It's bad."

The Hills happens to also be his favorite reality series as well.

"I'm a bit vintage. I go back to The Hills. Occasionally Audrina [Patridge] or Whitney [Port] will be on a website that I shouldn't be looking at, and I'm like, "You know, I just want to check that they're doing all right, because it's my youth. And the depressing thing is that it's not my youth. I was too old to be watching those programs when I was watching them."

Jennifer Also Loves the Housewives

"I went to Pump the other night to meet [restaurateur and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star] Lisa Vanderpump. I had her sign a bottle of vodka, and when she gave it to my friend who was with me at the Oscars, my friend said, 'Jennifer, this is so much better than the Oscars!' [laughs] We took so many pictures with her. We were like, [referring to season four of the show] "Puerto Rico was a witch hunt. Brandi [Glanville] and Kyle [Richards] were so mean!"

Jennifer on How Her Hunger Games Co-Stars Are Like Family

"We were just on the plane, and Josh [Hutcherson] was eating something that I don't like—salmon or something. I was eating my own snack and he kept eating my snack. I was going to share with him because I'm not an asshole, but then finally I was like, 'I can't eat your snack. So it's not fair that you're eating my snack!' Our security guard just started laughing at us. And we were like, 'It's been a lot of years!'"

Eddie on Getting Sick at the BAFTAs

"I'd flown in from Berlin that day and eaten some dodgy salmon on a plane. I was presenting with Sally Field. I did the red carpet… went into the BAFTAs and I was sitting behind Anne Hathaway, and as the lights went down… I legged it down some stairs in the Royal Opera House just out of the auditorium and preceded to projectile vomit the entire way down the corridor!"

Jennifer on Tequila

As the two stars discuss food poisoning, Jen mentions how she always gets sick on tequila, but eventually comes back to it. "I'm always like, "Nope, I can never drink tequila again," but ... [the phone call is disconnected and Jennifer comes back on] I'm sorry. I think my publicist pulled the plug when I started talking about tequila."
