Jake Gyllenhaal and Ryan Reynolds Got Trouble for Goofing Off on 'Life' Set: 'We Wasted So Much Money'
By Rachel McRady
Turns out, a blossoming bromance can be expensive. Jake Gyllenhaal and his co-star Ryan Reynolds learned this the hard way when they filmed their upcoming sci-fi thriller Life together. The new pals got in big trouble on the movie set thanks to their off-screen antics.
“The whole movie takes place zero gravity, you know, like we're floating around on wires,” Gyllenhaal explained to Jimmy Fallon on Monday’s Tonight Show. “So we're being chased by an alien, it’s terrifying, but then after when we would cut we just couldn’t stop laughing and joking. And it was like we wasted so much money, like, literally laughing. The producers brought us aside took us in the corner!”
The A-listers got into trouble with their higher-ups for goofing off too much between takes.
“They were like, 'We really need to talk to Ryan and Jake,' and they brought us in the corner they were like, 'You guys need to cut it out. We are wasting so much money!’” Gyllenhaal recalled laughing. “I was like, 'WE'RE STARTING A BRO-MANCE! Like, give us our time!'”
Well, these things can’t be rushed.
The two bros are loving their time together promoting the new film. Reynolds and Gyllenhaal recently opened up to ET’s Carly Steel about their friendship at the South by Southwest premiere of their film.
