You at my house and vice versa,
appeared uncomfortable during the preview of the feature film.
The duo, side by side, was thus shown a bit left and distant under the flashes of the photographers of the Regency Village Theater in Los Angeles, on February 2.

Even Mila Kunis, wife of Ashton Kutcher and friend of Reese Witherspoon, noticed their lack of chemistry – without depriving themselves of letting them know.
"She even emailed us last night: 'Guys, you guys look so embarrassed together on the red carpet,'" the heroine of
(2001) laughed in the “Today with Hoda & Jenna” show on Monday, February 6.

The laughingstock of internet users
An opinion that Internet users clearly share.
One of them, for example, had fun comparing the arm-in-arm appearance of Reese Witherspoon and Robert Pattinson during a red carpet for
Water for Elephants
(2011), with a photo of the February 2 preview.
A second quipped in the caption of a photo where the actors stand side by side (Ashton Kutcher having his hands stuffed in his pockets): “The chemistry is palpable.”
Learn to love yourself
However, the actress of
(1999) wanted to emphasize that she shared a real bond with her filming partner.
"I didn't know him very well before I started," she told the NBC talkshow.
He is so professional.
He's the funniest guy in the world.
And a big blunderer.
We had so much fun, and every time he wore a funny outfit, I would text Mila and ask her, 'What is he wearing there, anyway?'”
For their on-screen complicity to be credible (they are supposed to have been friends for more than twenty years), the two actors got to know each other better beforehand.
A month before starting filming, they called each other that way every day, and especially on FaceTime, in order to prepare for this new film in which their characters have a long-distance relationship.
“A real movie star”
The ex-companion of Demi Moore was equally rave about the actress from Louisiana.
“I was able to play against a real movie star, said Ashton Kutcher in the columns of
It was so wonderful, fun, funny and lighthearted.
There hasn't been a single bad day.
I was spoiled."
In the film, which hits Netflix on February 10, Peter (Ashton Kutcher) plays a hardened bachelor, embracing the turmoil of New York life.
Debbie (Reese Witherspoon) is a meticulous daily mother, raising her son alone.
These two former lovers become best friends, decide to exchange their lives.
Before realizing that “what they want may not be what they need”.
A film that carries, in hollow, the promise of a beautiful love story.
