Emily Blunt Says Dwayne Johnson Enjoys Pushing Boundaries
Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt’s chemistry was one of the best elements in Jungle Cruise. They said they enjoyed working on the film, which was also visible from their interviews. But one time things went a little too far.
During one of her interviews, Blunt explained that the Jumanji star enjoys pushing boundaries. She said, “He has no boundaries whatsoever.” The Wild Target star further said that she finds it to be a bit surprising.
Emily Blunt further said, “He’s a very confusing person because he’s the most polite gentleman in the world, and then he will just push the boundaries until he is saying things that will just make your head spin to make you laugh…. I think that he’s got this rebellious kid in him that won’t be straitjacketed.”
She explained an incident that happened while they were promoting Jungle Cruise. She said they were asked what would be the one thing they would bring into the jungle with them.
Answering the question Dwayne Johnson said that Emily Blunt would bring Vagisil with her. Responding to the Red Notice star, Blunt said that Johnson should bring anal beads.
Soon after the interview, they received a call from Disney to tone it down. The studio said they love Dwayne Johnson and Blunt’s chemistry and what they’re doing, but it would be great to dial it back a little bit on the anal beads.
