Dan retweeted a trailer for the movie and wrote, “Ten years. Damn.”
“My favorite scene is Gosling and Emma falling in love in bed,” he added. “All improvised.”
In the scene, Emma‘s character Hannah and Ryan‘s character Jacob discuss some of their most ridiculous habits, with Jacob ultimately admitting he has an addiction to the Home Shopping Network.
Dan revealed that he wasn’t initially thrilled with their improv.
“I thought everyone had lost their minds and that none of it would be in the movie—I left set early, irritated,” he recalled. “I’m a dope.”
Crazy, Stupid, Love was Emma and Ryan‘s first time working on a movie together, and they later went on to star in 2013′s Gangster Squad and 2016′s La La Land.
